On behalf of our staff and physicians, I would like to welcome you to Riverside Community Hospital.
I am glad you are considering our facility for the healthcare needs of your family and yourself. We offer a full spectrum of medical services by combining accessibility to the latest advanced technology with trained and skilled physicians, right here in the heart of the Inland Empire.
Our staff of over 1,900 employees and 500 physicians represents over 200 specialties. They are committed and passionate about providing the most comprehensive, quality healthcare to those we serve. We understand healthcare is changing rapidly. Advances in medicine and new strides in technology are giving local communities access to better healthcare than ever before. It is our desire to provide the best care in our region.
Riverside Community Hospital has long been committed to investing in the latest technologies. So while you may think you have to travel hundreds of miles to receive such comprehensive healthcare, it's actually right here in your own back yard.
We understand you are seeking our expertise for your health needs; that is why we value the confidence and trust you have placed in us. Riverside Community Hospital has been serving the community for over 110 years, and has been providing care for over 20,000 inpatients and over 100,000 outpatients annually. We are proud of the reputation and relationships we have established in the community and are committed to continuing to build upon our mission of providing exceptional, quality healthcare.
Riverside Community Hospital has been recognized as a Top Performing Hospital on Key Quality Measures® for three consecutive years in a row by The Joint Commission. The staff and physicians understand that safe and high-quality care is what matters most to patients who put their trust in us and we have made that a priority. At RCH, our primary focus is always on the patient and meeting their expectations while enhancing the patient experience. These key quality measures are the result of team efforts involving every aspect of our facility. This recognition is a reflection of our continuous commitment to improving the patient outcomes.
Today, Riverside Community Hospital is investing $363 million in the health of the community through the construction of a major hospital expansion project to meet the needs of our growing community, and to ensure an even higher level of care and service. While we are on a journey of growth and improvements for the benefit of our community, staff, physicians, patients and visitors, some of the journey, however, can be a bit disruptive.
I want to apologize in advance for our noise and dust. We are in the middle of significant upgrades to our campus including the addition of a new 7-story patient care tower and significant internal earthquake safety upgrades and renovations to our existing patient care towers. We limit most of the noisy construction activity to between the hours of 7:00am and 4:00pm. On occasion, we will have some activity outside of these hours, and will let you know when that will occur. For our patients, we have ear plugs, radios with ear buds and a relaxation channel on our television system. Ask one of your caregivers for assistance if you need it. If there is anything else we can do, please let us know.
We ask that you please bear with us and be patient as we continue on this journey to be an even better place to receive care for your family, friends and neighbors!
I invite you to explore our website to learn more about the many services and innovative programs that our hospital has to offer, along with details about our new expansion project.
Thank you again for choosing Riverside Community Hospital for healthcare. We look forward to serving you.
Patrick D. Brilliant
CEO Riverside Community Hospital
