12,000-square-foot space in downtown Providence’s Innovation & Design District will serve as CCA’s Rhode Island HQ; support 40+ local employees
PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Sept. 23, 2022 – Commonwealth Care Alliance® (CCA), a national, multi-state healthcare organization with proven expertise in complex care coordination and delivery, joined Rhode Island Lieutenant Governor Sabina Matos and Providence Mayor-elect Brett Smiley on Thursday to celebrate the opening of its CCA Health Rhode Island headquarters.
Located at 3 Davol Square in the heart of Providence’s Innovation & Design District, the more than 12,000-square-foot office space will be the central hub of CCA’s Rhode Island operations. Approximately 45 CCA Health Rhode Island employees will eventually work out of this new location.
“As we enter our second year of operations in Rhode Island, we are proud to open this physical office space that will serve as the home base for the critical work our team is doing throughout Rhode Island,” said Christopher D. Palmieri, President & CEO, CCA. “We made the decision to expand into the Rhode Island market because we firmly believe that individuals deserve choice when it comes to accessing affordable and comprehensive, whole-person care. We are confident our proven care model can and will make a difference in the lives of the Rhode Islanders we serve.”
CCA has been active in Rhode Island since late 2020, building a network of clinical team members and administrative support personnel who provide comprehensive member management services, with a focus on preventive health/wellness, chronic care management, social networks, behavioral health and specialty care needs. CCA officially launched its Medicare Advantage and Dual Eligible Special Needs plans in Rhode Island in January 2022.
“The opening of our Rhode Island headquarters is a testament to both our early success here in the Ocean State and our organization’s long-term commitment to providing high-quality, comprehensive care to Rhode Islanders who need it most,” said Corey McCarty, general manager, CCA Health Rhode Island. “We are thrilled to call downtown Providence’s thriving Innovation & Design District home, and are eager to continue growing our workforce and membership in Rhode Island in the years to come.”
The entry into Rhode Island marked CCA’s first-ever expansion outside of Massachusetts and marked the first step of a multi-year, mission-aligned growth strategy to extend its proven care model throughout the United States. CCA currently serves more than 100,000 individuals and operates health plans in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, California and Michigan.
