The most advanced EMERGENCY CARE close to home

Commitment to community seen in ER remodel

Advanced emergency care is something every community should have access to. This is something Riverside Healthcare has always believed in, and they recently completed an 18-month, $14-million remodel of its emergency department to ensure that state-of-the-art emergency care is close to home.

In fact, Riverside has the area’s only on-site:
● Full range of cardiac care, including heart attack treatments and surgery.
● Full range of stroke and neurological care, including brain and spine surgery.
● Pediatricians, from University of Chicago’s Comer Children’s Hospital.
This means that you can receive seamless care from emergency room to recovery. Features of the remodeled Riverside ER include:

More space for lifesaving care, including 35 patient care areas, six rapid treatment rooms, two trauma rooms and a well-stocked storeroom.
Private rooms for every patient. Many ERs have shared rooms divided only by a curtain.
Designated mental health rooms. At a time when mental health has reached critical levels, Riverside is able to provide that service better than ever.
Faster, more efficient service. A rapid assessment area allows patients with less-severe illnesses to be seen quickly.
