Patient Testimonial

“During my hospital stay at Riverwood in Aitkin I received excellent care. I couldn’t ask for better doctors, nurses and nursing assistants! Food service and housekeeping employees were wonderful too. My health problem was not great, but the Riverwood staff made it a great patient experience.” – David B.

“The hospital staff at Riverwood Healthcare Center in Aitkin made my mother’s passing easier. Those on duty that weekend did everything right. They were truly outstanding. Riverwood should be so proud of their workers. This is the way medical care should be.” – Peggy Sipulski, Richfield, MN
