Project Description & Timeline
November 2021– June 2022
South County Hospital, 100 Kenyon Ave, Wakefield, RI 02879
In what is planned as a two-phased project, patients will soon have access to a variety of diagnostic and treatment resources of a new South County Health Center for Advanced Heart & Vascular Care.
Phase 1 of the project calls for the build-out of space occupied by the Cardiac Rehab gym in the lower level of the Medical Office Building in preparation for the new Cardiovascular Center.
During Phase 2, South County Cardiology will relocate from its current offices on the third floor of the Medical Office Building to the lower level area renovated during Phase 1. An additional 4,000 sq/ft space will be redesigned to accommodate the Wound Care Center so it is adjacent to Cardiology and Cardiac Rehab, becoming part of the Cardiovascular Center.
The Center for Advanced Heart & Vascular Care will provide patients with a comprehensive center of excellence, using innovative technologies and the expertise of South County Health's respected team of board- certified cardiologist and the vascular surgery professionals of The Vascular Experts.
Here, patients will benefit from a broad spectrum of cardiac procedures, including EKG, echocardiography, arrhythmia diagnosis, pacemaker
implantation and follow-up, catheterization, nuclear stress testing, and South County Hospital's Cardiac Catheterization Lab. In addition, vascular surgeons will treat patients with conditions such as spider and varicose veins, rosacea, lentigines, and other vascular diseases.
