Riverside Community Hospital’s $315 million expansion project represents the single largest investment in the Hospital’s 111 year history. With a project of this size, we were delighted that the City’s streamlined process helped us secure financing for the project and will allow us to meet our important construction timelines.
The show Splash would not have happened without the Riverside team receiving ABC and Splash productions with open arms! KUDOS to Riverside for becoming our go-to city for shoots! The show looked AWESOME – it was hard to imagine it was the same pool we shot the promo from – absolutely looked otherworldly! – The show had great ratings and we project the show will do well for the season.
