Riverside Community Hospital Holds Ground breaking Ceremony for New $315 Million Major Expansion Project

Plans for the new major $315 million expansion project finally came to fruition for Riverside Community Hospital when over 300 individuals including hospital administrators and board members, local and state officials, community representatives, local business owners and Chamber members celebrated the official ground breaking Friday, March 1, 2013.

The ground breaking ceremony took place at the site of the future parking garage to formally kick off a significant expansion of the facility. State Senator Richard Roth, District 31, and Riverside Mayor Rusty Bailey were among officials who took part in the ceremonial start of the expansion project. After completion, expected by 2017, Riverside Community Hospital will feature a new 5-story parking garage with 1,061 parking spaces, a 3-story medical office building, and a new 7-story, 292,000 square-foot patient tower with 72 private patient rooms, bringing the 373-bed hospital to a 445-bed hospital.

The addition of the new patient tower will provide more space to accommodate families and expand services to more critically ill patients. Several floors of the patient tower will be shelled space available for future growth and expansion.

“This is truly an exciting time for Riverside Community Hospital, the community of Riverside and the entire Inland Empire region we serve” stated Patrick Brilliant, Riverside Community Hospital President and CEO. “We’ve been working for the better part of seven years to reach this point and begin construction on this campus expansion project. Many people in this community deserve to share this momentous event which their hard work and support helped create. We are honored to have community leaders including Senator Roth, Mayor Rusty Bailey, Cindy Roth and Brian Hawley from the Greater Riverside Chamber of Commerce, our City Council officials, Pastor Harry Cole of Calvary Presbyterian Church and my hospital staff officials and board members join us in celebration of this occasion and the first steps toward the completion of our future hospital.”

“This project truly represents Riverside Community Hospital’s commitment to patient care for our residents,” Chief of Medical Staff, Dr. Lawrence Clark said. “With the expansion, we will be able to meet the needs of a growing community for generations to come. Over the last 110 years, this hospital has established a reputation and trust within our community, and I’m excited that together we will have the opportunity to watch this vision of the new hospital tower become a reality.”

The construction project will result in 400 jobs over the duration of the project in various construction trades and nearly 300 full-time hospital positions when completed.
