Diagnostic imaging has greatly advanced health care in the last 30 years. With its use, doctors can accurately identify injuries, conditions, and diseases in their early stages. Newport Hospital has been designated as a Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology and is the only hospital in the state of Rhode Island to achieve this designation—the pinnacle of medical imaging care, going beyond accreditation.

Benefits of gardening

Gardening and Its Many Benefits

Here in the Northeast, gardening is limited to less than half the year. Between the last frost in spring and the first frost in fall, happy gardeners come out in full force to sow some seeds, tend their plants, and await the harvest.

Gardening can be rewarding and beneficial in so many ways. Whether your preference is fruits, vegetables, flowers, or bushes, getting back to basics and digging in the dirt can do wonders for us. The benefits of gardening can impact both your physical and mental health.
