Family Birthplace at Riverside Community Hospital delivers over 87% of the babies in the City of Riverside. More than 3,500 babies are delivered here every year.

High-Risk Pregnancy Services offers assessment and diagnosis before your baby is born, care for women with high-risk pregnancies and management of early labor. Women can also receive safe, effective treatment for pregnancy-related conditions, such as diabetes or high blood pressure (hypertension).

Neonatal Intensive Care for our tiniest patients encompassing 20-beds staffed by board certified neonatologists and nurses who are specialty trained to care for small babies born under 30 weeks gestation. Our NICU transport team is ready day or night to facilitate transfers of sick babies from other hospitals not able to care for them.

Prenatal Education Services through our Women's Services Center gives parents the information and tools they need to give their new baby the best start in life. We offer free courses, including childbirth preparation and breastfeeding. Our virtual maternity tea & tours are also popular options to become better acquainted with our facility and staff. Upcoming classes are listed on this page or you may visit our calendar of events to view all classes available.

Breastfeeding Center

Our Women's Services Breastfeeding Center is a free center. The center is open to the public to assist mothers with any breastfeeding needs, and serves as well as a follow-up visit where mom's can have babies weighed.

Our hope is through education, aid and support, the mothers in our community will have a confident and positive breastfeeding experience.

The Breastfeeding Center is open by appointment only Monday and Thursday, 9:00am - 1:00pm. For information, please call (951) 684-4621 or (951) 788-3252. For 24-hour breastfeeding support, please call Loving Support at (888) 451-2499.

Pediatrics

Our Pediatric Unit features 16 beds. We care for patients ranging in ages from newborn to teenagers. Our dedicated team of Registered Nurses love working with children and have worked with the pediatric population for most of their nursing careers.  We work closely with many Inland Empire Pediatric physicians and have a network of hospitalists in case you do not have a physician in the area. We admit patients from our Emergency Room or directly from your doctor’s office. Riverside Community Hospital is also equipped to provide outpatient and inpatient surgical services for your child.  Nobody wants to see their child sick, however, we will give your child the best care possible to help them get better!

Gynecology

Riverside Community Hospital provides gynecologic surgeries using the da Vinci Surgical Robot and Urology/Gynecology specialty services.
