Construction is under way on Providence Community Health Center

PROVIDENCE – New England Construction, a family-owned construction company based in Rumford, is currently building Providence Community Health Center's 9th location. With this project, NEC is proud to support Providence's Olneyville community, a neighborhood that hosts some of the worst health outcomes and data in Providence. The new location will also include an Express Care department.

Construction is well under way on Atwood Street and is scheduled for completion in early 2022.  PCHC President and CEO, Merrill Thomas said that "the development of the new center will offer space for 14,000 more patients and create over 50 full time, sustainable paying jobs.  This investment will provide a medical home and allow us to better address the health and racial equity issues that this neighborhood currently experiences."
NEC is very grateful to partner with Providence Community Health Centers and the Vision 3 Architects design team on this project.

For further information, we encourage you to explore additional announcements from ABC 6 and the Providence Business News.
