Bio medical Center Warwick Ortho RI

WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — A new 100,000 square-foot, three-story bio-medical center will soon be coming to Warwick, adjacent to the Crowne Plaza hotel.

Officials said the facility will serve as a medical office and surgery center for Ortho Rhode Island.

Warwick Mayor Joseph Solomon and the Carpionato Group, a property development company, announced the plan Wednesday, which they say is expected to bring 125 construction jobs and provide 275 permanent jobs once the bio medical center is complete.

The project has the approval of the Warwick Planning Board and will be constructed in two phases. According to city officials, it will add more than $25 million in assessed value to the City of Warwick’s tax rolls.

“As we continue to identify opportunities to invest in New England, the creation of a bio-medical campus in Warwick that creates good paying permanent jobs is smart economic development that benefits the city and our state,” Alfred Carpionato, chairman and CEO of Carpionato Group, said. 

Executive Director of Ortho Rhode Island Mary-Ellen Ashe said the centralized position and proximity to the highway makes the Greenwich Ave location an “ideal site for our patients for access.”

Calspan Development and Construction will be executing the project.
