Eastgate Nursing and Rehabilitation, located at 198 Waterman Ave. East Providence celebrated many of their recent renovations with an open house on 12/20/18. The event was open to the public and featured its beautiful rehabilitation room and state-of-the-art equipment. Keven Ryan, owner of Eastgate, participated in the ribbon cutting and congratulated the staff on the new space.

Eastgate has provided care to the community for over 30 years and in 2012; Health Concepts purchased the facility and has made many updates. New renovations include their 68 resident rooms, many of the common areas, storage space, offices and most recently their spacious rehabilitation room. The therapy equipment has been enhanced to include a cutting-edge electrotherapy, ultrasound therapy system and a therapeutic exercise system with motor-assist technology. The room has natural light flowing in with an enhanced work flow. Rehab Director, Erica Yidiaris stated how beneficial the new therapy room will be for the residents. “Eastgate Nursing and Rehabilitation provides physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. The new renovations have focused on areas that are most beneficial to the patients receiving short term rehabilitation and those that reside with us long-term.”

Eastgate’s Nursing Home Administrator, Anna Zambrano was excited about the continuation of renovations and system upgrades such as a new call bell system being installed in January. Additional renovations planned for 2019 include a brand new shower room, 1st floor nursing station and common areas along with updates to the exterior. Anna stated “Eastgate is focused on continuing to transform and improve how we deliver care that is truly person and family centered.”
