Sixty-one physicians with privileges at four Care New England hospitals – Butler, Kent, Memorial, and Women & Infants hospitals – have been named to Rhode Island Monthly’s 2017 list of Top Docs in Rhode Island. Multiple physicians have privileges at two or more hospitals in the system. The list appears in the May issue, now on newsstands.

The physicians awarded this distinction represent the continuum of care offered across Care New England. Our broad range of services—primary care, surgery, cardiovascular care, oncology, psychiatry, behavioral health, newborn pediatrics and the full spectrum of women’s health services – make us uniquely prepared to care for individuals and our community whether they’re having their first child, facing a cancer diagnosis, or in a sudden need for emergency services. In reinventing the way health care is delivered Care New England has attracted many of the nation’s top specialty-trained doctors who work diligently to ensure the health of their patients.
