The RISE Clinic at The Miriam Hospital is a tuberculosis clinic sponsored by the Rhode Island Department of Health. Clinic staff members are experienced in TB care and know how to safely handle contagious patients.
The RISE Clinic has about 8,500 patient visits each year. Most patients whom the clinic treats are not contagious; most carry the TB infection, but are not ill from the disease. The clinic works to eliminate the chances that these patients will ever get ill from TB or be able to pass TB on to others.
The clinic provides an array of services for patients, depending on their individual needs.
