WOONSOCKET â€“ State health officials have approved Seven Hills Rhode Islandâ€™s application to run an outpatient ambulatory care facility as part of a multi-million dollar pilot project aimed at containing health care costs for individuals coping with complex developmental and physical disabilities.
Seven Hills will operate one of two Living RIte centers under a $15 million grant obtained by the University of Rhode Island, according to Christine Gadbois, administrator of Seven Hills Rhode Island.
AccessPoint RI, another health care provider in Cranston, will run the other.
WOONSOCKET â€” As the fog burned off to make way for sunny skies and the temperature rose out of the 40s on Monday morning, anticipation was running high at the staging areas on Diamond Hill Road for those marching, riding and â€śfloatingâ€ť in the 35th annual Autumnfest parade.
High school bands, local businesses and politicians from across the state, congregated to get their marching orders before the 9:30 a.m. procession stepped off.
PROVIDENCE â€” Right from the onset, Bob Driscoll expressed a strong desire to inject new life into the athletic facilities utilized by Providence College coaches and student-athletes.
â€śI remember speaking with a reporter in one of my first interviews for an article about what was possible,â€ť said Driscoll, now less than a month away from the 12th anniversary of his hiring date as the schoolâ€™s athletic director. â€śIâ€™m a pretty big dreamer, but even for my dreams, itâ€™s exceeded that.â€ť
