Ortho Rhode Island hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, March 25th to celebrate the opening of their new flagship campus at 300 Crossings Blvd. in Warwick, RI. The new facility will officially begin patient care on Monday, March 29th.

This innovative campus supports Ortho Rhode Island’s mission “to deliver the best patient experience in orthopedics, offering seamless access to every phase of care, including outpatient surgery at the Ortho RI Surgery Center, immediate injury care at Ortho RI Express, advanced imaging with MRI, and physical and occupational therapy”.

The 66,000 square foot facility is centrally located by Route 95 in Warwick, and has been designed around a patient-centered workflow to reduce wait times.

The first floor features Ortho RI Express injury care, physical and occupational therapy, Ortho RI Biologics, and MRI services, allowing patients with brief appointments to come and go without the elevator or stairs.

The second floor contains orthopedic and podiatric office space and exam rooms, divided into four pod areas, each with its own digital x-ray equipment.

The third floor houses the Ortho RI Surgery Center, with eight operating rooms and two procedure rooms.

“This is an exciting advancement for Rhode Island in terms of musculoskeletal care – through patient-focused care, innovation, and technology this campus will provide a one-of a-kind patient experience, with easy access to a full spectrum of orthopedic care in one location,” said Michael P. Bradley, President and CEO of Ortho Rhode Island.

The building design also offers an abundance of natural light, outdoor walking space, terraces, and ample free parking. It will be the new home of Ortho Rhode Island’s Warwick and East Greenwich offices, and is an addition to their current facilities in Providence, Wakefield, and Westerly, as well as their satellite locations.

Calspan Development & Construction began construction in April of 2019. COVID-19 caused a few minor delays but the project was finished on time. “Calspan Development & Construction did a great job overseeing the project and delivered high quality work – they are a pleasure to work with,” said Mary Ellen Ashe, Executive Director of Ortho Rhode Island. Ashe also went on to thank the city of Warwick and their teams for their support throughout the project.

About Ortho RI Surgery Center
“Having an outpatient surgery center benefits both the patient and the payers – it costs less to deliver care with an outpatient surgery care model while still providing world-class patient care and outcomes,” Bradley said. A variety of orthopedic procedures will be performed on an outpatient basis at Ortho RI Surgery Center, while their more complex in-patient cases will continue to be performed at their local affiliate hospitals. One example is their long-standing relationship with South County Health, where many Ortho Rhode Island patients will continue to benefit from their inpatient care.
