Project Description & Timeline
January 2021– December 2021
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 Cardiac Rehab Center will, once again, 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 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, enable patients with limited mobility to be transferred easily during exams and treatments.
