Rhode Island Hospital
Rhode Island Hospital was built through the generosity of the community, beginning in 1857 with a bequest by Moses Brown Ives to establish a fund for a hospital in Rhode Island. In 1868, the founders of Rhode Island Hospital gathered on the hospital grounds to dedicate the new hospital, founded to serve the citizens of our state as its name indicated. Every day, our teams of dedicated healthcare professionals deliver the highest level of compassionate care to each patient who comes through our doors, all the while using the most sophisticated medical advances available.
So much of what takes place at Rhode Island Hospital is made possible thanks to the generous supporters who understand how important Rhode Island Hospital is to the health of the community.

The Miriam Hospital
Extraordinary generosity has been the constant theme for The Miriam Hospital since its beginnings. In 1902, it was the kindness of the surrounding community that enabled our founders to fund the creation of our institution. Throughout the years, it has been the ongoing philanthropy of our supporters that has allowed us to continuously provide the highest quality patient care.
Our donors have provided funding for critical research, structural projects, state of the art equipment, and many other programs and services helping to make The Miriam one of Southern New England’s finest and most respected hospitals.
Bradley Hospital is the nation's first psychiatric hospital devoted exclusively to children and adolescents. Today, children who struggle with behavioral and psychiatric health issues have more options than ever before. With the support of our donors we are pioneering pediatric mental health care, education, and research.
For the children and families whose lives are affected by mental illness, Bradley is a life-saving place of healing that offers treatment and care that isn’t available anywhere else. Beyond pushing the boundaries of research, education and care, Bradley Hospital is working to remove the stigma of mental illness which too often prevents people from seeking treatment.
Founded and funded by Newporters in 1873, Newport Hospital began as a 12-bed cottage hospital on donated land. In an era when most of the sick were cared for at home, a hospital was deemed a necessity for those whose homes were elsewhere: fishermen, military, and others who worked the bay and ocean. Since its inception Newport Hospital has kept pace with advances in medical technology and the needs of the community.
Due to the generosity of supporters it is now a state-of-the-art, award-winning health care facility that offers a broad range of medical services, including emergency care, diagnostic imaging, a birthing center, behavioral health unit, comprehensive surgical services, intensive care, acute inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, and has received the coveted Magnet designation from the American Nurses Association and Baby Friendly designation from the World Health Organization and UNICEF.
