In addition to being able to access the public hearing from your home or office, we have set up two locations in the community where people can gather and access the hearing together.  The Isle of Wight Volunteer Rescue Squad building and the Smithfield Center will both be available to gather and call into the public hearing together. A Riverside team member will be at both locations to answer any questions you may have on the day of the hearing. Both locations will be at reduced capacity, require attendees to wear masks and social distance from one another to control the spread of COVID-19.  Feel free to come to one of the in-person locations or call in remotely.

We need as much support for Riverside as possible. Every person who speaks up in favor of Riverside moves us closer to getting our application approved and bringing a much-needed hospital to Isle of Wight County.
