Since its founding, Memorial Hospital has relied on the generosity of many friends to help build the hospital, expand and renovate, create new facilities, and provide fundamental annual support that enhances overall operations.
Today, Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island is a vibrant, not-for-profit health, teaching and research center built on a foundation of philanthropy that spans generations and is known throughout the Blackstone Valley, East Bay regions of Rhode Island and in Bristol County, Massachusetts. It is a leading and innovative healthcare resource with a tradition of treating patients regardless of their ability to pay and is committed to providing modern facilities that provide state-of-the-art care for all.
In addition to charity care, Memorial Hospital also provides numerous services to the community at no charge, including language interpretation, physician referral, community health screenings, health and wellness education, and support groups. These services are possible because the hospital constantly strives to invest in its facilities, equipment and personnel.
Just as the community relies on Memorial Hospital, Memorial Hospital relies on the community for financial support to provide these services and more. Thanks to generations of donors and their thousands of gifts, Memorial Hospital of Rhode has made a great difference and stands ready to provide the best care available.
