“My time at Newport Hospital as a Lifespan employee has been extremely rewarding. My placement in the diagnostic imaging department was one of the most in-depth and hands-on experiences that I have had in any work setting. This program has shown me not only another side of the medical field that I likely would have never ventured to on my own, but it has also shown me how important human connection is, no matter the setting” -Jacob A.
