WHAT WE ACCOMPLISH WITH A "CAN DO" ATTITUDE

Block Island is a special place. Special for its pristine beaches and stunning scenery, its salty air and starry nights. And it’s special for its community. Block Islanders have a history of taking care of their home and community.

The Block Island Medical Center has been an indispensable part of sustaining the island as a viable year-round community and an internationally known tourism destination.

 

We have a unique and storied history.

Watch a documentary by Seedworks Films about the history and making of the Block Island Medical Center, from its farmhouse roots to the present day. Yes, with appearances by Mary Donnelly, RN.
