Health & Medical
The City of Riverside is Inland Southern California’s natural nexus for the growth of Healthcare and Medical industries.
Riverside is home to several major medical facilities and in close proximity to many others including Kaiser Permanente, Parkview Community Hospital, Riverside Community Hospital, Riverside Medical Clinic and Loma Linda Medical Center. Even with the supply of several major medical facilities, the area is statistically underserved. Inland Southern California is one of the fastest growing regions in the state and demand for services is rising.
The City of Riverside is primed for growth in the industry and ready to meet the increasing demand with ample commercial space and infrastructure, significant utility advantages, an increasingly attractive quality of life, a lower cost of living, and several regional educational facilities available to train for all levels of professional growth.
