At the Riverside Foundation, we believe in a higher standard of care, one that stresses excellence in medical quality, comfort and compassion. Our mission to care for others as we would care for those we love drives us to support a number of health, education and community programs. Through these initiatives, we promote more effective health care practices, more knowledgeable professionals, and a higher degree of wellness in the places we call home.

Every hospital, health care system and specialized treatment facility is required to maintain a minimum level of quality, a bottom line that has, for many, become the standard. As a result, this is often where funding ends. However, our focus goes beyond what others may call good enough. We believe in giving you the medical attention you need at the level of care you deserve. At Riverside, we want to meet your needs as you have them, not as policy changes develop.

While higher standards may come at a higher cost, our beliefs do not end where financial obstacles begin. Through your support, we are able to continue providing our communities with exceptional care, fulfilling our mission and meeting the real-life needs of those around us.

Remarkable care starts with a focus on health, and we seek to ensure that focus for every single one of our patients. From babies, just minutes old, to friends that have seen a century, our goal is to provide excellence in medical care for today and tomorrow. Your support enables us to meet the patient, program and equipment needs that allow us to care for others as we would care for those we love.

We represent a leading institution in the exploration of advanced new concepts in cancer care and integrative medicine, specifically in the fusion of traditional clinical therapeutics and alternative wellness strategies. By partnering with the Riverside Foundation, you're investing in a new horizon of health care for the region.

Riverside also demonstrates a unique approach to Lifelong Health that finds its roots in our core mission. We envision a level of care that far surpasses that which is considered "acceptable" by today's insurance carriers. This includes personal care plans and unique, comfortable housing to foster the health and happiness of our senior patients. Your support enables us to create a sustainable foundation for programs like Lifelong Health as deserved by you, your family and friends.

You can help further our mission through supporting cancer care and lifelong health, as well as other initiatives such as education, hospice care, or even a specific hospital in your region.

Scholarships are more than an opportunity, they're an investment. By providing educational possibilities for aspiring students and professionals, we not only help individuals achieve their dreams, we promote a strengthened picture of health care for the future. Your support provides the opportunities these students need today in order to create a higher standard of care tomorrow.

We believe our educational funds provide the foundation for more passionate, skilled caregivers. Many of our scholarships directly benefit Riverside education initiatives. These initiatives not only focus on unparalleled medical instruction, but also teach students how to grow with advances in technology and the increasing demands for quality health services. By investing in community education and professional development, we're working to foster a budding community of health care professionals that embodies our vision for a higher standard of care.

We support a number of scholarships for nursing, surgical and other students, as well as the children and grandchildren of our dedicated employees.

The members of our great communities are the reason we work so diligently toward a higher standard of care. You are our neighbors, loved ones, coworkers and friends. Our focus is your well being and happiness, which is why we support a variety of health, educational and community initiatives. When you get involved through Riverside, you are helping to sustain these valuable resources for your community.
