Aitkin Clinic

Riverwood’s Aitkin Clinic is conveniently located inside the Riverwood Healthcare Center complex. The main clinic offers a personalized approach to healthcare with a team-based model of care that supports health and wellness for individual needs.

The Aitkin Clinic care team includes access to a variety of family practice and internal medicine physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nursing services, as well as a wide range of specialty care from cardiology to orthopaedics. Additional diagnostic testing and other medical services are available at the hospital. Our Same Day Clinic provides services for non-life-threatening, urgent medical concerns.

We also offer Virtual Care Video Visits through telehealth, allowing you to connect face-to-face with your healthcare provider from the convenience of home or work. You will talk with your provider like you would if you were together in an exam room. To schedule just call our regular appointment line and ask for a virtual visit.
