Nearly half a century ago, discussions were held on how to consolidate the small hospitals in Dover-Foxcroft, Dexter and Milo into one regional hospital. In 1972, Guilford residents were the first to vote in favor of building a regional hospital. Two years later, voters in the 13 area towns decided to form Hospital Administrative District 4 (HAD 4), choosing a site adjacent to the Mayo Memorial Hospital in Dover-Foxcroft as the best place to build the new hospital.

Since the inaugural ceremony in 1978, Mayo Regional Hospital has undergone several important expansions.  In 1982, HAD 4 purchased the Plummer Hospital in Dexter.  A new wing was built onto Mayo Regional Hospital’s first floor in 1984, the Women’s Imaging Center opened in November of 1988, and the Medical Office building opened in 1989. Since 1995, Mayo Regional Hospital has operated a physician practice management department known as Mayo Practice Associates which manages primary care offices in Corinth, Dexter, Dover-Foxcroft, Guilford, and Milo.  The new ambulance garage was built in 2000. The new Emergency Department was built in 2003 with an expanded ambulatory services wing, and a Mayo Resource Center which included space for Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, business offices and a conference space. That project also included first floor renovations of the outpatient services area and the second-floor Obstetrics Department. More recently, Mayo Regional Hospital opened the Tracy Hibbard Kasprzak Cancer Treatment Center in 2017.
