City officials, staff from Bristol Health and representatives from Rendina Healthcare Real Estate gathered to celebrate the grand opening of Bristol Health’s new Medical Care Center (MCC), a 62,000-square-foot healthcare facility that will expand critical health services for the Bristol community. As a pioneer project in the revitalization of downtown Bristol, the new medical facility will pave the way for future development in the area, occupying a prominent site at the corner of Riverside Avenue and Main Street.
Kurt Barwis, FACHE
President and CEO of Bristol Health
It was our board of directors who, in 2015, felt that since access to care was a priority identified in our community health needs assessment, that we should pursue this project. Even back then, we knew that this would be a win-win for numerous stakeholders including Bristol Health, the city and our patients and families.
The MCC will be occupied by Bristol Health’s Multi-Specialty Group, providing the community with a range of crucial services, including cardiology, endocrinology and diabetes, neurology, orthopedics, rheumatology and urology.
Rendina Healthcare Real Estate, a leading national developer, partnered with the hospital as the developer of the $26 million MCC, and will own and manage the facility going forward.

The new Medical Care Center will help Bristol Health build on their outstanding reputation as a leader in providing the very best care, and its location will serve the community well by providing accessibility and convenience.
