Block Island is a special place to many. 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.

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