EHC Slogan Winner

EASTPORT _ Slogan aficionados from Eastport to Calais focused their creative powers on some memorable phrases and after some serious review by Eastport Health Care’s Community Committee, the winning motto was selected.

The first place winner of the first-ever Eastport Health Care Slogan Contest was Ashley Hinson of Calais with her catchy phrase “Eastport Healthcare, Our Specialty is You.”  Hinson won a $50 gift certificate donated by the New Friendly Restaurant in Perry.

The second-place prize went to Bill Buehner of Eastport who played on Maine’s slogan, “The Way Life Should Be.” Buehner came up with, “EHC, The Way Health Care Should Be.” Buehner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Liberty Café in Eastport. 

The third place prize also goes to Hinson. 

She submitted several ideas and after careful consideration by the Community Committee her slogan, “Eastport Healthcare, Because you Matter,” was selected. She also will receive a $25 gasoline gift card.

EHC’s chief executive officer Holly Gartmayer-DeYoung said she was pleased with the response. “We are really pleased with the slogan submitted by Ms. Hinson and we will be incorporating it on all future correspondence and other EHC documents,” she said.

That sentiment was echoed by Roland Bohtello, president of EHC’s Board of Directors. “We have some truly creative people out there and they demonstrated their ingenuity by submitting some really good slogans. I also was pleased that we received submissions from Calais to Eastport.”

EHC has a rich history that began in 1978 and now includes not only medical but dental, podiatry as well as behavioral counseling. In addition to its state-of-the-art facility in Eastport, EHC has medical offices in Machias and Calais.
