Welcome to Riverwood Healthcare Center! Since 1955, our 25-bed community hospital has continually evolved to meet local healthcare needs, growing into the state-of-the-art facility it is today.

In 2013, we renovated the inpatient area, going from semi-private to all single-occupancy patient rooms, family friendly with a sofa sleeper and beautiful nature photos on the walls. Our attractive birthing center features comfortable and spacious labor/delivery rooms, with amenities like a whirlpool tub, mini fridge and wireless internet. Take a virtual tour of our birthing area on our birthing center page.

Serving patients with personalized care and innovative technology, Riverwood continues to lead not only at home but has gained national recognition. In 2017 and 2018, Riverwood was recognized as a Top 20 Critical Access Hospital. Our hospital is backed by accreditation from the Joint Commission, which sets state-of-the-art standards for quality and safety of patient care.

In a rural area like ours, outstanding emergency care is critical. Our Aitkin hospital has designations of Comprehensive Advanced Life Support Hospital (CALS), Level III Trauma Center and Level I Heart Attack Hospital, partnering with the Minneapolis Heart Institute at Abbott Northwestern Hospital. In the event of a heart attack, stroke or trauma-related injury, Riverwood’s emergency staff is ready with life-saving care 24/7.
