Our Community’s Most Vulnerable Teens

This year’s summer celebration will support a crucial funding need – the development of a new Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit at Newport Hospital. We are partnering with our Lifespan sister hospital, world-renowned Bradley Hospital, to create an eight-bed unit that will serve patients 12 to 17 years old who suffer from serious mental health disorders and need short-term stabilization, assessment, and treatment for suicidal, aggressive, or other behavioral conditions.

St Patricks Day

150th Celebrations in the Community

On Saturday, March 11, the 67th annual Newport St. Patrick’s Day parade filled the streets of downtown Newport. Approximately 40 employees and their family members marched to celebrate Newport Hospital’s achievements spanning the past 150 years. Staff members volunteered their time and talent to design and construct a Newport Hospital themed float, which took the community back in time with vintage nursing uniforms. Other employees joined in the spirit of the holiday by proudly wearing green Newport Hospital long sleeve shirts. We are “lucky” to have had such incredible support for this special event!
