Riverside Healthcare works with individuals and community partners to address the most pressing health concerns in our region.

We continue to develop, grow, expand, and deepen the breadth of the exceptional quality care, advanced technology and treatment, physicians, specialists and available expertise, as well as programs and resources available to those living, working and raising families in this area.

Building stronger, healthier communities means building stronger, more positive relationships–relationships crossing boundaries of geography, age, income, race, beliefs or religion. The contents of this report will illustrator our efforts including programs, dollars devoted, those served and more.
It is only a year’s snapshot in Riverside’s lifetime commitment to the health of the community and the people who live, work and play here. The numbers, although important, add up to a sum greater than the total, and that is the difference we make each day in someone’s life.
It is our privilege and our purpose.
I have been working at Riverside Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)
Riverside leadership does an excellent job of balancing both high quality and compassion in caring for others. This makes the work rewarding and mission-based internally and is recognized externally by many national awards. In addition, Riverside excels at an approachable, open-door management style and both formal and informal programs for professional growth and education. I am attracted to Riverside's excellence and strong financial standing as an independent community hospital that is thriving- it seems to be a bit of a unicorn in today's healthcare landscape.
The growth and variety of geographic campuses sometimes makes communication disjointed.
I applied online. I interviewed at Riverside Healthcare (Kankakee, IL) in August 2017.
The interview process was very thorough and professional. Phone interview first than in person and lastly a group interview with a meet and greet with everyone in the department. I was given a description of the position in detail along with a professional description of the tasks expected for the job title.
