Riverside Healthcare works with individuals and community partners to address the most pressing health concerns in our region.
• Access to Care
• Mental Health
• Chronic Disease
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.
We connect people with the highest quality health care and develop trusted relationships, giving them the knowledge and the resources to take control of their own health. We educate, treat and promote prevention, management and health advocacy for everyone’s mind, body and spirit.
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.
The career development opportunities provided to me as a Riverside team member have the potential to not only grow my career, but give me the opportunity to grow with the Riverside family and give back to the organization and the communities it serves. As I continue to develop professionally, it becomes more apparent to me that Riverside genuinely upholds the organization’s mission and values through its support and belief in the talent within.
Not necessarily a con; however, a competitive nature accompanies career paths in this growing organization. If you work hard, moving up within the organization will be a challenge gladly accepted!
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Riverside Healthcare (Kankakee, IL) in April 2017.
I was impressed with the organized interview process. All of the correspondence with the HR staff was prompt and professional. The entire process was thorough yet handled in a timely manner. My interview with the Director went great. She was polite, professional, and energetic... it made me eager to work in this environment!
