Message from the CEO

A message from Ted Scholten, President & CEO

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff at Riverside Health Care, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.

The exercise of accessing and obtaining health care services can be intimidating and difficult. So we want to provide you with timely and accurate information that will assist you in making wise healthcare decisions and facilitate interaction with our organization and staff.

Typical of proud Northern Ontario communities, at every Riverside site and program we are more than your health care providers – we are your friends and neighbours. The dedicated team of health care professionals at Riverside are very proud of all facilities in Fort Frances, Emo and Rainy River. And together we are dedicated to delivering excellent care. That is our commitment, reflected in our shared values of integrity, respect, excellence and growth.

Our vision is to provide exceptional and compassionate health care, inspired by the people we serve, valued by our communities. Our goal is to align our resources to ensure that we are being responsive to our communities’ health care needs, taking into account the degree of need and the amount and type of available resources. Riverside is committed in its effort to maintain the level of service on which our communities depend daily.

We invite you to share your comments or suggestions about our website. We encourage you to explore its pages and links and if you need additional information, please be sure to contact us. We are happy to help you in any way, so feel free to share your suggestions, compliments or concerns. You’re feedback helps us to provide our very best service.

Kindest Regards,


Ted Scholten, BSc, MHS
President and CEO
