RMC News and Updates
We are happy to welcome Dr. Yasheka Nicholson as our new Surgeon! Pictured are Rhonda Berthelot, MA and Dr. Yasheka Nicholson.


A hospitalist is a fully qualified medical doctor employed or contracted by a hospital to treat patients while they are hospitalized. These may be patients without a primary care physician or patients whose primary care doctors have agreed that their care be assigned to a hospitalist. Hospitalists copy reports and diagnoses to your primary care physician and consult with them by phone, fax or e-mail as needed to determine the most appropriate care for you. Riverside’s hospitalist service accepts direct admissions from your attending physician. Upon discharge, patients are referred to their primary care physician for continued care. Our hospitalist service is provided by Dr. Luis Alvarado. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Riverside at 795-4180.


National Hospital Week celebrates hospitals and the men and women who, day in and day out, support the health of their communities through compassionate care, constant innovation and unwavering, unmatched dedication. Now more than ever, hospitals play a vital role in improving community health across the nation – this extends far beyond strictly providing medical care. The men and women of Riverside Medical Center supports the health of community EVERYDAY. And to them, we say THANK YOU!


Join Riverside and The Blood Center on Thursday, May 1 for a blood drive from 2 pm to 7 pm. The Blood Mobile will be parked in front of the hospital.
