Riverside Hospital Expands Reach with Acquisition of Dubuis Hospital

Riverside Hospital is thrilled to announce its recent acquisition of Dubuis Hospital. The new hospital, now named Riverside East, will operate from its existing location on the 4th floor of Christus St. Frances Cabrini.

"We are excited to expand Riverside to a second campus," said Amy Grimes, CEO of Riverside Hospital. "This acquisition aligns perfectly with our vision of expanding our reach and enhancing access to quality healthcare for Central Louisiana residents." Grimes is currently the CEO of Riverside Hospital and will also assume the role of CEO at Riverside East.

Riverside East will complement its existing location at 13 Heyman Ln, Alexandria, LA 71303, and together, they will form a cohesive network under the Riverside umbrella. With this expansion, Riverside Hospital aims to reinforce its position as a leader in healthcare delivery while continuing to uphold its reputation for excellence and compassion.

"At Riverside, we consider our patients and staff as part of our family. With Riverside East, we extend this ethos to a new community, ensuring that every patient receives the highest standard of care," Grimes continues.

Riverside Hospital has been a cornerstone of healthcare in Central Louisiana for nearly two decades, specializing in two levels of care and pioneering patient access to advanced medical treatments. Its comprehensive services include telemetry monitoring, round-the-clock nursing care, respiratory care, wound care management, and daily physician visits. Each patient receives a personalized plan of care, overseen by its physician-led interdisciplinary team throughout their hospital stay.

Riverside East will serve as a dedicated facility for long-term acute care (LTAC), offering specialized treatment for patients with complex medical needs. LTAC facilities, like Riverside East, provide extended medical care for patients who require ongoing monitoring and support beyond what is typically provided in a traditional hospital setting. This model of care ensures continuity and consistency in treatment, leading to improved outcomes and a higher quality of life for patients.

This expansion will involve hiring additional employees for Riverside East. Current job openings include: LPNs, RNs, LTAC Marketing Liaison (RN), and Housekeeping. To apply visit:

As Riverside Hospital continues to grow and evolve, its commitment to excellence remains unwavering. It looks forward to serving the community at Riverside East and delivering superior healthcare with the compassion and dedication that defines it.
