Michael Integlia & Company, a real estate development firm based in Providence, R.I., held a groundbreaking ceremony on Nov. 12th to celebrate the new home of University Orthopedics. The development, financed by The Washington Trust Company, marks the first commercial development project on the Kettle Point Redevelopment parcel fronting on Veterans Memorial Parkway in East Providence, R.I.
The groundbreaking ceremony attracted more than one hundred spectators including local dignitaries, physicians, staff and Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo.
Commenting on University Orthopedics expansion, Raimondo stated, “We have some of the best healthcare professionals in America here in Rhode Island and I certainly appreciate that commitment to Rhode Island. This is a big investment in Rhode Island and it shows that we have a very bright future.”
The new 88,500 sq. ft. (8,222 sq m) development on the Kettle Point site reflects the vision between the Project Team and University Orthopedics goals to best serve their orthopedic patients in the community and beyond.
