To protect our patients, staff and visitors this flu season, Riverside Medical Center has initiated temporary visitor guidelines and restrictions.

No one age 17 or younger will be allowed to visit hospitalized patients at this time.

We ask that all people who have flu-like symptoms, regardless of age, please refrain from visiting patients in the hospital.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and cooperation during this flu season.
