There are countless reasons as to why The Westerly Hospital has been recognized as Westerly’s Employer of Choice. Some of our professionals have stated that they enjoy working within our state-of-the-art facilities. Others have mentioned how they are put at ease by our open-door policy with management. And still others take comfort in knowing that The Westerly Hospital takes an interest in their future by offering Continuing Education Units (CEUs). And of course, they all can’t help but gain satisfaction from being ingrained in the communities they serve. The truth be told, it is the cumulative effect of these qualities that makes The Westerly Hospital shine, as it continues on its journey to create the perfect employment experience.
With the attention we’ve paid to facilities construction and renovation at The Westerly Hospital over the past several years, there is virtually no patient care area that is more than ten years old. Our ambitious plans have led to:
- Four new operating rooms
- An eight-bed intensive care unit
- Our comfortably appointed Women’s Health Center
- A completely renovated endoscopy suite
- A conveniently located Ambulatory Care Center
- All-private medical and surgical inpatient rooms
- A large new emergency services department
In September 2003, we proudly opened a diagnostic cardiac catheterization laboratory that reduces the number of times each year that patients must travel out of the area to receive this important examination. In October 2004, the Hospital acquired the latest “16-slice” CT imaging technology.
Giving the brightest healthcare professionals access to the most up-to-date technologies and facilities has been a key component of The Westerly Hospital’s formula for success. Our patient satisfaction rankings are among the highest in the state, and our place in the hearts of the community is secure, as the citizens of Westerly continue to demonstrate enthusiasm and support for our mission.
A consistent investment in the future of care.
