Sacopee Valley/Kezar Falls Region
The valley between the Saco River and Ossipee River makes up the Sacopee Valley. The Sacopee Valley Health Center is located in Porter (pop. 1,438), one of the three towns (Porter, Parsonsfield, and South Hiram) that comprise the Kezar Falls Village area. Our service area is located roughly 45 miles west of Portland and includes the towns of Baldwin, Brownfield, Cornish, Hiram, Limerick, Limington, Newfield, Parsonsfield, Porter and Steep Falls, Maine (all with populations between 1,000 and 4,000). We also serve the towns of Effingham and Freedom, New Hampshire. The local economy relies on small businesses, cottage industries, antiquing, farming, forestry and eco-tourism. While we are in a rural area, we are not too remote, and many residents commute daily to work in Greater Portland.
Our service area has a population of 22,385.
