Expanding to Meet the Needs of Our Community

Construction of the new addition to Wood River Health's Hope Valley location is finished! A/Z Corporation oversaw 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 was completed on time and on budget with official completion of Phase 1 on November 17, 2023.

Stay tuned for Phase 2 of our Capital Campaign project to build out our dental suite at Hope Valley!

Hope Valley Facility Expansion:

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Wood River Health has seen a significant rise in patient demand for our quality medical, dental, behavioral health and social services.

To determine how to best meet our community’s growing needs, we conducted a comprehensive feasibility analysis. The results confirmed what we suspected: we must expand our footprint in Hope Valley. We secured an architect to design an addition at 823 Main Street. The new building will improve the patient experience and allow us to:

The $5 million building project offers patients a one-stop experience for all of their medical needs, while preparing WRH to meet future demand. To achieve this vision, we brought together a team of experienced fundraisers to form our Capital Campaign Committee:

To date, Wood River Health’s Capital Campaign has been supported by over 60 donors, including 100% of Wood River Health’s Board of Directors and its Executive Leadership Team. Corporate and Foundation support has been received from The Champlin Foundation, Delta Dental of Rhode Island, Fred M. Roddy Foundation, The Kimball Foundation, Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island, The Warren Alpert Foundation, UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of RI and Optum, The Washington Trust Charitable Foundation, and Westerly Community Credit Union.

Local service clubs that have supported the new building include the Rotary Club of Chariho, the Rotary Club of Westerly, and the Lions Club of Westerly.
