Lifespan cuts ribbon on new ambulatory care center

PROVIDENCE – Lifespan Corp. cut the ribbon today on a new medical center that supplements The Miriam Hospital and offers primary care.

The Lifespan Ambulatory Care Center, a three-story 57,000 square-foot building on Corliss Street, will house a number of clinics, including a men’s health center and infectious diseases and immunology center.

Dedicated to the memory of developer Everett A. Amaral, who oversaw the project until his death last year, the building is located on the former Clifford Metal site in the Mount Hope section of Providence.

The Miriam Hospital is leasing the building.

“The opening of this building means that two vital and outstanding Miriam programs – men’s health and immunology – can continue to grow and serve patients in a modern and easily accessible location,” said Arthur J. Sampson, president of The Miriam.

Several hundred people will work at the facility, which is expected to open in early 2020.

Both the men’s health and immunology programs will be relocated from the Miriam into the new building. Additional services will include a Lifespan pharmacy and laboratory. Anchor Medical Associates, a Lifespan-affiliated primary care group, is also moving into the building from its former location on Hoppin Street.

“Our mission at Lifespan is to continually improve how we serve our patients… but we are also fully committed to investing in the well-being of the communities we serve,” said Lifespan’s president and CEO Dr. Timothy J. Babineau. “That’s why we are so pleased to play a role in revitalizing this property while enhancing the neighborhood’s further evolution into a valuable hub for health care.”

The new center is positioned to act as another piece in a growing concentration of Lifespan programs in Providence. Nearby are a Lifespan addiction recovery center, the Women’s Medicine Collaborative, Lifespan Physician Group and the health system’s imaging and weight and wellness centers.

Amaral Associates, formerly run by Everett Amaral, oversaw the development of those properties.
