Wood River Health Releases 2022 Annual Report
Wood River Health has released our 2022 Annual Report, which is filled with valuable information about our Federally Qualified Health Center's recent successes and updates about our ongoing initiatives. Click here to learn more about our report and to download a digital copy.
Wood River Health’s well water system does not currently meet the new public drinking water regulations. This exceedance is the result of a recent change in the requirements established by the Rhode Island Department of Health.
About half of all Rhode Island facilities are having this issue because of the new standards. Wood River Health is implementing treatments to reduce the levels of contaminants in our drinking water to ensure they fall below the new standard.
We are not under a Do Not Drink order, but bottled water is available at our front desk for our patients’ use until our final mitigation plan is approved by the Rhode Island Department of Health.
Expanding For Our Community
Construction Update, September 2023:
Construction of the new addition to Wood River Health's Hope Valley location is moving along quickly! A/Z Corporation is overseeing the construction of the two-story, 9,000 square foot building joined to the back of our existing facility at 823 Main Street, Hope Valley. We are happy to report that the project is on time and on budget with scheduled completion in the Fall of 2023. Interior work continues and the outside courtyard and patio is established. Stay tuned weekly for photos of the progress! To see more pictures of the progress or to learn about how to donate to our Capital Campaign, check out our Capital Campaign page.
