Newport Hospital has confirmed via Facebook that their facility has recently been used for filming of The Discovery.

It was confirmed back in March that Robert Redford, Rooney Mara and Jason Segel would be filming the movie on Aquidneck Island and throughout Rhode Island in 2016.

“It’s been pretty exciting here at Newport Hospital lately as we played host to a film crew for scenes from the upcoming movie, “The Discovery,” starring Robert Redford, Rooney Mara, Jason Segel and Nicholas Hoult. Several areas within the hospital were used in some shots. Special thanks to our security and facilities teams who went out of their way to assist with many logistics and escorting the crew, and to ensure there was no impact to patient care. I’m sure we’ll all be watching for scenes shot right here when it’s released next year!,” Newport Hospital said on Facebook.
