Health officials approve Seven Hills care facility

Posted 10/21/13

WOONSOCKET – State health officials have approved Seven Hills Rhode Island’s application to run an outpatient ambulatory-care facility, The Woonsocket Call reported last week.

The project is part of a multimillion dollar pilot project aimed at keeping health care costs down for individuals with developmental and physical disabilities, the newspaper said.

Seven Hills will operate one of two Living RIte centers under a $15 million grant obtained by the University of Rhode Island, Seven Hills Administrator Christine Gadbois told the Call. AccessPoint RI, a Cranston-based health care provider, will run the other.

The program looks to find ways of squeezing greater efficiencies from Medicare and Medicaid for patients with multiple medical issues, according to Gadbois. Such patients typically have regular contact with many doctors but none of the doctors have any contact with each other.

The University of Rhode Island’s Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services, the grant recipient, projects the savings over the life of the grant for the combined caseload of both Living RIte centers to be in excess of $15 million. •
