Nassawadox – The affiliation of Shore Health Services and Riverside Health System has been reviewed by The Virginia Attorney General who determined that no further action is warranted.  The affiliation was finalized this morning when the appropriate paperwork was filed with the State Corporation Commission.

Effective today, Shore Memorial Hospital changed its name, in honor of the affiliation, to Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital.  “We are proud to share our name with Riverside, just as we are proud to share our commitment to the community and our vision for the future of healthcare on the Shore,” stated Joseph P. Zager, Administrator of Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital.

Richard J. Pearce, CEO Riverside Health System, and Zager look forward to being a part of a future committed to improving health and wellbeing throughout southeastern Virginia.
