Expansion Project

Planning for the Future of Health Care in Our Community

Since 1901, Riverside Community Hospital has been a vital part of the Inland Empire region, and for decades people in the community have depended on the hospital for comprehensive healthcare and its highly specialized services.

Today, Riverside Community Hospital is investing $315 million in the health of the community through the construction of a major hospital expansion project to meet the needs of a growing community, and to ensure an even higher level of care and service. Scheduled to be completed in 2018, the expansion and renovation project will give Riverside Community Hospital the ability to better serve the Inland Empire Region by improving access to healthcare with a total capacity of 445 acute-hospital beds.
