Seavest Announces Opening of New ASC

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., and WARWICK, R.I. — Seavest Healthcare Properties LLC announces that the new $13.9-million, two-story, 62,724-square-foot Kent Ambulatory Services Pavilion in Warwick, R.I., about 15 miles south of Providence, is now open for business and serving patients.

The facility is located on a 0.76-acre site at 455 Toll Gate Road on the campus of Kent Hospital, part of the Care New England Health System. It houses a 31,000-square-foot ambulatory surgery center and medical office space for physicians. White Plains, N.Y.-based Seavest Properties III healthcare real estate fund owns the building and is leasing it to Kent Hospital for the ASC and other hospital services.

“We are pleased to open our new Kent Ambulatory Surgery Center, located within the Ambulatory Services Pavilion,” says Sandra L. Coletta, chief operating officer, Care New England and president and CEO, Kent Hospital. “This represents a continuation of our long-standing commitment to the community and state and to delivering the highest-quality, patient-focused healthcare that will meet the needs of residents. We also look forward to finalizing developments soon on the first floor that will provide a unique primary care patient care experience.”

“We expect the new facility will be a tremendous asset to the hospital staff and physicians, as well as the community,” says Jonathan L. Winer, senior managing director and chief information officer of Seavest Inc. “It has a beautiful, up-to-date, efficient design and layout, which will enhance interaction and collaboration among staff members as well as service to patients.”

The ASC is equipped with eight surgery suites, five expansive and three smaller rooms designed specifically for endoscopic technology. The design of the facility allows easy access from every room to the central surgical core. In addition, the ASC is connected to Kent’s 359-bed acute care hospital in the event a patient needs to be brought there for further care. The ASC also features 28 oversized pre- and post-operative bays for patients’ preparation and recovery, and free Wi-Fi and monitors in the waiting room so friends and family can privately track a patient’s progress.

The Washington, D.C., office of Trammell Crow Co. developed the building for Seavest. The architect was Steffian Bradley Architects of Boston, Mass. and the general contractor was Dimeo Construction Co. of Providence.
