(Aitkin, MN) — Riverwood Healthcare Center and its Board of Directors recently announced the approval of two major capital projects that will expand and enhance patient care into the future.

Riverwood’s Hospital in Aitkin will be expanding and updating their surgery department with the growing number of surgeons and surgical specialties and the volume of surgical procedures. More space is also needed for patient education and family waiting, and enhanced patient privacy. 

The Riverwood Clinic in McGregor will also move to a new location in recently purchased land along Highway 210. According to the master facility plan, the 16 acres of land will begin with a groundbreaking ceremony anticipated for Spring or early Summer 2023. 

More information will be coming available and the Riverwood Foundation will be launching a capital campaign to support hospital and clinic expansion projects.
