Beyond the Building: The Campaign for Newport Hospital
Newport Hospital exists for one reason: to provide you, your loved ones, and your neighbors with the highest-quality health care. Care that goes beyond what people thought a community hospital could deliver, beyond what our founders imagined 145 years ago when we opened as a 12-bed cottage hospital.
Beyond our building are our people: the dedicated doctors, nurses, staff, and volunteers who are also your neighbors and friends. Beyond our building, we reach you in your own communities with 22 physician practices located throughout Newport County. Beyond Aquidneck Island, we connect you with Lifespan, the state’s premier health care system.
Planning for Our Community's Needs
At Newport Hospital, our goal is to be your hospital—the one you turn to when you need care for yourself or your loved ones. With that goal in mind, we’ve been taking a hard look at everything we do. Guided by our new strategic plan and master facility plans, we’ve streamlined services, improved access to care, and enhanced the patient experience.
We’ve made great progress, but we have reached the limits of what we can accomplish in our current facilities. We need your help to get to the next level of growth. Your support of Beyond the Building will help address the hospital’s most urgent needs: a $12.5-million ED expansion and a $2.5-million upgrade of our ICU. Both projects will deliver settings that are more comfortable, private, and secure. Most of all, they’ll allow us to give you what you deserve most: the finest patient-centered experience.
Beyond the building, we’re reaching out to you—neighbors, community members, and friends—asking for your support of this fundraising campaign. Your generosity to Beyond the Building: The Campaign for Newport Hospital will help us offer the most up-to-date medical care for residents and visitors alike. Together, we can ensure that Newport Hospital is here and ready to provide the most outstanding care to an outstanding community.
Beyond Rhode Island, we benchmark with hospitals nationally to make sure that your care here is best-in-class. Today, we’re looking beyond the building, to you and to our community’s evolving needs. In response, we are undertaking a $15-million campaign to keep pace with those needs and to transform health care for the region.
