Building a Future That Will Serve a Community Riverside Rappahannock Hospital


National Hospital Week (May 7-13) is a time for Riverside Tappahannock Hospital team members to celebrate who they are and where they’re going. This is especially true in 2017, as renovations transform how the hospital looks and their continual push to improving care has changed how the hospital performs.


Building a Better Place for Cancer Care


RTH recently unveiled an expanded, updated Cancer Care Center and introduced new medical oncologist, Dr. Kimberly Schlesinger. Earlier in 2016, RTH had brought in a new nurse navigator to help cancer patients understand their often complex plans of care; and a new physical therapy assistant who is certified in treating lymphedema. These additions complement the multi-disciplinary team of surgeons, pharmacists, and diagnostic imaging and lab staff that it takes to treat cancer.


And the team feels like they are just getting started. The cancer team is looking at how they will expand education, screening and treatment options to increase survivorship. Next on that list is bringing 3D mammography to the hospital to provide advanced screening capabilities. And since treatment is also about acknowledging how far you’ve come, they invite past patients and survivors for fellowship on National Survivor Day each year in June.


Building Surgical Care Close to Home


Surgical care is also a team effort with a focus on a highly trained multi-disciplinary team of surgeons, each with their specializations--breast conservation, colorectal, vascular, urology, and orthopedics--which complements general surgery like gallbladder or appendix removal, and hernia repair.


92 Building Better Rooms to Heal


Patients are now able to heal comfortably in the first phase of private patient rooms, which were completed in March. This was the result of a community-wide fundraising effort, which included businesses as well as individuals who saw the value in having a local hospital to care for the community. Renovations will continue throughout 2017 with additional patient rooms, an expanded mammography suite, and improved admitting and front reception areas. The end result will be a space which will allow it to continue to serve the needs of the community for years to come.


Building Quality Care for the Community


Team members have also been hard at work continuously improving the safety and quality of their care which leads to better outcomes for patients. The result? RTH was recently awarded an “A” Hospital Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group; readers of Virginia Living Magazine voted them one of the Top 3 Hospitals in the Eastern Region; and they were featured on CBS6 for the complex, high quality care that this hospital is capable of performing.
