Riverside University Health System – Coming to the Aid of Those in Need for 125 Years

For 125 years, we have come to the aid of those in need …daughters, sons, mothers and fathers, family, friends and neighbors.

We have innovated better ways to care for you today …and we educate those who will one day take our place to ensure your care tomorrow.

We stand ready to respond and ready to serve in crisis and in celebration …to partner with you to find health and hope.

Why? Because you matter. You are our neighbor. Your life is precious and filled with potential.
You inspire us to dig deeper, climb higher and go further in our effort to help you back to health …
and teach you how to stay there.

We stand ready to respond and ready to serve in crisis and in celebration …to partner with you to find health and hope.

Why? Because you matter. You are our neighbor. Your life is precious and filled with potential.
You inspire us to dig deeper, climb higher and go further in our effort to help you back to health …
and teach you how to stay there.

We are Riverside University Health System …and we serve because you matter.

The County of Riverside established the hospital that would become the heart of the County’s healthcare safety net in 1893 …just two months after the County was founded.

Originally housed in a downtown Riverside hotel, the hospital quickly outgrew the hotel property and, in 1895, moved to a larger hotel in City of San Jacinto. One fire, one earthquake and five years later,
the hospital was moved back to the city of Riverside where it would remain for the next ninety-eight years.

Wars, depressions, epidemics including the Spanish flu and Tuberculosis combined with dramatic population growth tested the County hospital’s ability to fulfill its mission. Through it all, it grew to become what residents needed it to be. The hospital became known as an innovator in medical care
becoming the first in the County to achieve Joint Commission accreditation and is the County’s first teaching hospital.

Today, R-U-H-S trains thousands of physicians nurses and health professionals each year.

In the mid-1980’s, it was clear the hospital had outgrown the Riverside campus. Plans were developed to relocate the hospital to 105-acres of land in Moreno Valley. The new 520,000-square foot structure would offer more than double the space of the old Riverside hospital allowing for twice the patient volume …and it was built to withstand earthquakes that threatened to level the old hospital buildings.

In 1998, the army of physicians, nurses, staff and patients took up occupancy in the new facility whose design and technical features had earned it the California Association of Public Hospital’s “County Hospital Innovation Award”.

In the years that followed, the County’s population more than doubled and the wisdom of investment proved itself. In 2015, the hospital, the County’s network of community health centers
as well as its departments of Behavioral and Public Health merged into the single entity we now know as Riverside University Health System.

Adaptation and innovation are central to the fulfillment of Riverside University Health System’s mission to provide for the health and healthcare of the communities we serve. Today, Riverside University Health System is taking the necessary next steps to ensure its ability to provide the region convenient access to the quality care for which it has become known.

The new Medical Office Building on the Moreno Valley campus will provide advanced outpatient care tailored to our community’s unique needs. More room to provide care will reduce the time patients wait to receive care and will enable R-U-H-S to more efficiently satisfy the healthcare needs of a growing region.

To bring care closer to home, R-U-H-S is improving and expanding its emergency services
and network of community health centers. New clinics in Corona, Jurupa Valley and Moreno Valley
have been designed as convenient one-stop-shops that offer both medical and mental health as well as pharmacy services. Combined with its existing clinics located in the County’s population centers, residents and visitors are never far from the convenient and compassionate care R-U-H-S provides.

Whatever changes and challenges the future may bring, we will continue to adapt … continue to innovate … continue to educate … continue to care.

It’s a Yes! James and his Surprise Proposal of Marriage to Esperanza at Citrus State Park

Months of planning, scouting locations and the creation of a special memory book all came together as planned by the handsome James as he proposed to the beautiful Esperanza while both families carefully hid behind hedges after placing balloons along the walkway to the Gazebo.

Yes, he was nervous and no, she could not remember a word he said during the proposal. And yes, there was a drone in the air which James was able to convince her was actually bees.

Godfather Films was proud to film this very special moment.

Mission Inn Wedding Video Cinema

Godfather Films has been honored to have filmed more than 500 weddings and other celebrations at this historic and beautiful resort hotel located in Riverside, California.

You can view more beautiful weddings from the Mission Inn at
http://www.MissionInnWeddings.com
https://VimeoPro.Com/GodfatherFilms/Riverside-Mission-Inn-Wedding-Video

Ceremonies are breathtaking in the St. Francis of Assisi Chapel, exquisitely embellished with seven jewel-toned Tiffany stained-glass windows and a gleaming, 18-karat gold leafed altar from the mid 1700s. When the chapel’s huge wooden doors are opened and sunlight streams in, the bride is spotlighted in special glow as she makes her entrance. Two courtyards are also available for outdoor weddings.

Large receptions are held in the Grand Parisian Ballroom, which resembles a baronial hall in an Old World castle. Sumptuous details include custom-woven wool carpeting inspired by the French Aubusson rugs of the 17th and 18th centuries, damask draperies framing the room’s stained-glass windows, and eight spectacular crystal chandeliers suspended from the original beamed ceiling.

The Spanish Art Gallery is ideal for groups of up to 120. Richly appointed with regal 17th-century European décor and an elegant gold palette, it’s a sophisticated space featuring an impressive marble staircase and a flowing ceiling canopy.

For an intimate celebration, reserve the charming Santa Barbara Room. Traditional wrought-iron and glass light fixtures create a cozy ambiance, while sheer drapes diffuse the light from tall windows overlooking both the picturesque interior courtyard of the Hotel and the Oriental Court.
