Project Description & Timeline
November 2020 – October 2021
South County Hospital, 100 Kenyon Ave, Wakefield, RI 02879
Cardiac Rehab and Wound Care Center
The Cardiac Rehab Center will be condensed and relocated into vacated areas in the Medical Office Building lower level to pave the way for a new a Cardiovascular Center.
Here, it will continue to accommodate patients who need medical monitoring during their rehabilitation. Other patients who do not need provider-level of monitoring will receive prescribed rehabilitation activities they can continue at-home or at their neighborhood gym.
The Wound Care Center will also be relocated to the MOB Lower Level, adjacent to Cardiology and Cardiac Rehab. Upon completion, the Wound Care Center will be equipped and redesigned to accommodate bariatric patients and those with decreased mobility.
The relocation of the Wound Care Center will allow patients more ease of access and additional amenities that will accommodate the diverse needs of this patient population.
Among the enhancements, the Wound Care Center will install a patient lift, enabling patients with limited mobility to be transferred easily during exams and treatments.
