Health Care and Medical Services


The City of Riverside is Inland Southern California’s natural nexus for the growth of Medical and Health Care industries.

Riverside is  home to several major medical facilities and in close proximity to many others including Kaiser Permanente, Riverside Community Hospital and Loma Linda Medical Center. Even given the variety of excellent medical care options currently available, the inland region is one of the fastest growing  in the state and is statistically under-served. The demand for a highly skilled workforce of nurses, lab and diagnostic technicians as well as doctors across the spectrum of professional specialties is continually on the rise.

And Riverside is prepared to meet these challenges. The City’s four local Colleges and Universities provide a whole host of training and educational opportunities. From the new School of Nursing at Riverside City College to the planned Medical School at University of California, Riverside, the City is actively recruiting and training tomorrow’s local workforce.
