EAST GREENWICH, R.I. (September 19, 2019) — This week, University Surgical Associates hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of its newest state-of-the-art facility in East Greenwich. The new location at 1407 South County Trail will provide West Bay residents with an alternative option to receive world class care that is close to home.

“We are excited to bring the region’s best surgeons to our new state-of-the-art facility, conveniently located here in the West Bay area,” said Matt Uustal, Executive Director of University Surgical Associates.

The 3,000 square-foot facility was designed with the patient experience in mind. The specialties of surgeons practicing at this facility include general surgery, endocrine, weight loss surgery and colorectal surgery. Additionally, the highly-regarded Center for Breast Care and the Vascular and Vein Center are now on site as well. Patients will also be able to meet with surgeons specialized in melanoma and oncology.
