Brown Medicine Expands Practice to Northern RI

Brown Medicine has expanded its practice into a new medical facility to serve primary care and subspecialty patients.

Brown Medicine is now occupying 5,200 sq. ft of Class A leased medical office space in the Smithfield Office Center located at 900 Douglas Pike in Smithfield, R.I. Build-out of the new location began late last year. Other medical practices under the Brown Physicians, Inc. umbrella, of which Brown Medicine is a part, will be opening offices in the building including Brown Dermatology and Brown Neurology. Lifespan Labs and Performance Physical Therapy will also be operational in the Center.

“We are very excited about expanding our presence to the northern part of the state, and eager to provide services to patients from this area,” states Dr. Louis B. Rice, president of Brown Medicine. “We are conveniently located off Route 295 and Route 7 and offer plenty of free parking.”

Brown Medicine is one of several healthcare practices in the region that support the ‘patient centered medical home’ model of care, allowing for collaboration and coordination between primary care and the specialties. “Our patients will experience a facility that features work spaces for physically distanced collaboration between doctors, other clinicians and administrative personnel; as well as reception and check-out areas optimized for safe traffic flow,” adds Dr. Rice. “It is designed to be responsive to and centered around patient needs and our desired outcomes for the highest quality of care.”
