Riverside Tappahannock Hospital

Riverside Health System, a not-for-profit health system based in Newport News, acquired the hospital in 1989, renaming it Riverside Tappahannock Hospital. Throughout the 1990s, Riverside invested in the facility and grounds, adding diagnostic imaging capabilities, expanding the emergency department, and adding an infusion center. As the new century began, so did our network for telemedicine, expanding our ability to access specialists and providing care close to home for our patients whenever possible. In the theme of keeping care close to home, Riverside also expanded their network of primary care providers throughout the Tappahannock and Northern Neck regions in addition to adding an urgent care center which improved access to care after hours and on weekends. Most recently, we renovated and expanded our Infusion Center and developed the Riverside Cancer Care Center in Tappahannock to better serve the needs of our area's cancer patients.

As we look to the future, Riverside Tappahannock Hospital is committed, through its local board of directors, to continually changing to meet the needs of the communities we serve.
