Project Description:

In 2003, Providence Community Health Centers (PCHC) purchased a former manufacturing facility to develop an entire, urban block as a comprehensive healthcare campus to serve their patients in this South Providence, community. Over a ten-year period, PCHC has demolished some buildings, worked to designate others as historic landmarks, renovated existing buildings, and constructed new buildings. The completed development includes a 41,750 s.f., LEED Silver Certified, primary care health center, a 50,000 s.f. medical office building that is on the National Register of Historic Places, and a 4,800 s.f. retail building which is leased to a pharmacy. The new campus is a $45 million transformation of a dilapidated mill complex into a new medical and health service campus that supports 200 staff and the community, encouraging a green and smart environment.
