Learn about enrollment

Newport Hospital’s Doctor on Call program (DOC) is an innovative on-call physician service, designed to provide you and your family with convenient, high quality health care during the summer months.

The unique program offers exclusive 24/7 access to a board-certified family practice physician, providing personal, on-demand patient care, including house calls, phone consults, and in-office visits.

Benefits of Doctor on Call

  • A personalized health and wellness assessment upon your arrival in Newport to provide seamless enrollment into the program
  • Convenience of a private, welcoming, membership-only environment for in-office visits
  • Assistance with member-specific health care needs, such as immunizations, preventive testing, or executive physicals
  • Facilitated referrals to specialty physicians as needed
  • Send-off prior to the conclusion of the program to review and coordinate care with your primary care physician

If a visiting friend or family member should need urgent medical care, DOC members also have the option to extend coverage to visitors at the member’s home, at an additional hourly rate.

How to Enroll in Doctor on Call

The Doctor on Call program provides members with care from May 24 until September 30. We provide service to Newport, Jamestown, Middletown, Portsmouth and Tiverton.

Membership in DOC costs $1,000 per person. Membership covers the physician fees only. Testing such as labs, imagining, medications, or other services are provided at an additional cost.

Corporate memberships are also available.

Enrollment is now open for summer 2019. A limited number of memberships are available.
