Giving you time to heal
Patients sometimes need a longer acute care stay due to multiple injuries, trauma, or complications from an illness. Their unique medical and rehabilitative needs may require a specialized setting for optimal care. Riverside Hospital provides this level of expertise.
We are a 28-bed long term acute care hospital with a goal to medically stabilize and strengthen patients who meet the medical criteria for an extended hospital stay. We treat the whole patient – physically, emotionally and socially by providing an interdisciplinary team of expert healthcare professionals under the direction of dedicated physicians.
