Location Cranston, RI


In March of 1994 the three state hospitals operated by RI Department of Mental Health Retardation and Hospitals integrated into one hospital system; the Eleanor Slater Unified Hospital System (ESH). The 495 bed public hospital consists of two campus locations: The Eleanor Slater Hospital at the John O. Pastore Center in Cranston, RI and the Eleanor Slater Hospital/Zambarano Unit in Burrillville, RI.

The hospital is licensed by the Rhode Island Department of Health and accredited by the The Joint Commission (TJC). It treats patients with acute and long term medical illnesses as well as patients with psychiatric disorders. Most of the patients are admitted from community hospitals or other health care facilities and require hospital level long term care. The hospital recognizes the severity and chronic nature of the illnesses of its patients and endeavors to provide a treatment environment in which dignity, respect, and recovery are emphasized. In addition to diagnosis and treatment, the hospital focuses on issues connected to quality of living. [1]
