Riverwood has an on-site helipad for fast air ambulance transportation. Response time is critical to saving the lives of trauma victims and as a Level III Trauma Center, we have the Emergency Room staffed 24 hours a day, with surgeons readily available for emergencies. Riverwood was one of the first hospitals in Minnesota designated as a Level III Trauma Center.
