Androscoggin Home Healthcare and Hospice Rebrands as Andwell Health Partners

Maine-based Androscoggin Home Healthcare and Hospice has rebranded as Andwell Health Partners to better reflect its growing suite of services.

The company launched in 1966 as a home health company, later adding hospice, palliative, behavioral health and community care services.

“As we continue to grow and evolve, we realized that the name Androscoggin Home Healthcare and Hospice no longer accurately reflected who we are, where we are going and who we serve,” Andwell board chair Debra Fournier said in a statement. “The new name, Andwell Health Partners, better encompasses everything the organization does. We’re now the largest independent, nonprofit, home and community-based healthcare organization in Maine.”


As Androscoggin entered the behavioral health market in 2022 with its acquisition of Care & Comfort for an undisclosed sum. The company also opened a palliative care center in Portland, Maine, in 2021. It also offers maternal and child health, mobile wound care, therapy and caregiver services.

The new corporate identity, Andwell Health Partners, is meant to invoke its legacy Androscoggin Brand, also the name of its home county. It also combines the words “well” and “dwell” to signify its home-based care continuum.

“We are proud of our important place on the healthcare continuum, and we know that Andwell Health Partners reflects our true evolution and vision,” CEO Ken Albert said in a statement. “Our name may have changed, but our heart hasn’t. We are still the same great people, and we are still committed to enhancing quality of life by providing innovative and compassionate health care for all. We want to serve as your partner in health for life.”
