Southcoast Health Urgent Care Fall River Update
South Coast Improvement, Co. completes fifth Urgent Care facility at SouthCoast Marketplace in Fall River, MA
South Coast Improvement Company (SCI), a design-build general contractor serving New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, recently finished construction of a new Urgent Care facility at 450 William S. Canning Blvd, Fall River, MA and opened for business on July 10. This represents the fifth Urgent Care Center that South Coast Improvement has built for Southcoast Health, a not-for-profit, community-based health system with multiple access points, offering an integrated continuum of health services throughout southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
All Southcoast Health Urgent Care Centers are equipped with staff and equipment to treat a wide range of medical situations—e.g. broken bones, contusions, cuts, burns, animal bites, etc. Urgent Care Centers provide patients with less serious injuries an option to the emergency room at the hospital.
The new Urgent Care Center in Fall River features custom millwork, AD sliding door systems, new hospital grade air exchange system as well as other hospital grade finishes. South Coast Improvement also coordinated all low voltage/data requirements with the hospital's data staff. South Coast Improvement also built the facility to meet the requirements of Southcoast Health’s X-ray Equipment as well as all of their fixture requirements.
At the July 10 grand opening ceremony, Southcoast Health President and CEO Keith A. Hovan noted the success of the Urgent Care Center model. “Our Urgent Care Centers are especially important now that we are living in an age where our patients have truly become healthcare consumers. Patients want high-quality care when they need it. Our urgent care centers deliver on those expectations.”
Congressman William Keating and Fall River Mayor Jasiel F. Correia II attended the ribbon-cutting.
In addition to the Urgent Care Center in Fall River, South Coast Improvement has completed Urgent Care centers in Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Lakeville, and Seekonk.
JACA Architects of Quincy, Massachusetts was the project architect.
