For more than 100 years Riverside has been committed to the communities we serve. In 2017, as we look to celebrate forty years of serving the Middle Peninsula, we are excited to share our plans for expansion and renovation on the Riverside Walter Reed Campus.
When complete, we will have an expanded 18 bed Emergency Department with a Family Care Room dedicated to the comfort and well-being of family members during what may be one of the most difficult times in their lives. This renovation expands our emergency department from 6,300 square feet to more than 16,000 square feet including 3 new state-of-the-art treatment rooms and a trauma room.
We will relocate the main entrance of the hospital to Gloucester's Main Street and Medical Drive, where the current Medical Arts Building entrance is located. Renovations will include a new lobby, registration and waiting area, gift shop and much more.
Adjacent to the north side of the Medical Arts Building, we are constructing a new two–story building (see camera footage on this page) that will house all Surgical Services including 3 new state-of-the-art operating suites, pre-operative and post-operative recovery areas along with 36 private patient rooms located on the second floor.
