NORTH KINGSTOWN – A staple in the community that has been offering rehabilitation and short and long-term nursing care to area residents, Roberts Healt Centre will be celebrating a milestone next month as it turns 30 years old.
No party is planned and according owner Richard Catallozzi, it’ll be “business as usual”. The Ten Rod Road Centre doesn’t advertise and attributes its success to referrals and word of mouth. The 66-bed facility employs between 85 to 90 staff members and, Catallozzi said, there’s no intention of expanding.
