Providence, RI – Located off Veterans Memorial Parkway at Kettle Point in East Providence, a new and improved University Orthopedics has opened its doors to the public. The new 88,500sf medical center is the first commercial building to be constructed on the Kettle Point property that also consists of 230 residentials units.
The project was led by builder Michael Integlia & Company. The firm teamed up with NEMD Architects, Inc., EW Burman, and DiPrete Engineering on the construction of the building.
University Orthopedics’ newest location is designed to accommodate the four-story building, 395 parking spaces, drainage, and other structural improvements.
The orthopedic center’s new building will include an ambulatory surgical center, exam and treatment rooms, as well as x-rays and MRIs. The site also provides a network of paths, parks, and a public parking area open to Kettle Point tenants and residents.
“The site provides easy highway access, and proximity to hospitals and other local medical facilities,” said David Russo, project manager at DiPrete Engineering. “It also has a covered entrance and plenty of parking.”
“This new facility will allow University Orthopedics to provide the highest quality orthopedic care,” added Russo. “It will also provide a number of new jobs, adding to the economic growth and development in the City of East Providence.”
University Orthopedics, with offices in Providence, East Greenwich, Barrington, and Middletown, is a regional referral center for patients with back and neck pain, joint pain, sports medicine problems, shoulder pain, hand problems, hip and knee pain, and foot and ankle injury.
