Riverview Medical Center Named as one of the Most Beautiful Hospitals in the U.S.

Hospital clinches the fourth place spot in national competition by Soliant Health  

Red Bank, NJ - Hackensack Meridian Health Riverview Medical Center has been named as the fourth most beautiful hospital in the U.S. through an annual competition run by Soliant Health, a leading specialty health care staffing provider and part of Adecco Group.

The medical center placed fifth in the competition in 2016 and second in 2017. Despite dropping two places this year, Riverview Medical Center received 5,500 more votes than last year, but could not catch the front runner, Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida, which won with more than 65,000 total votes.

“The competition was fierce this year,” says Timothy J. Hogan, FACHE, president of Riverview Medical Center and Hackensack Meridian Health Bayshore Medical Center. “Despite our fourth place standing, we are very proud to have brought national recognition to our beautiful corner of the world. We look forward to participating again next year, as we are confident that we are the most beautiful hospital – not just because we are fortunate to sit on the stunning Navesink River, but also for the incredible services, technologies and programs that we provide to our patients and guests.”

In addition to offering waterfront views, the medical center is also committed to providing the highest quality care. In 2017, Riverview Medical Center was ranked the eighth best hospital in New Jersey by U.S. News & World Report, and in 2018, was awarded a fourth consecutive ‘A’ rating by The Leapfrog Group, an independent organization that assigns letter grades to hospitals based on commitment to patient safety and for meeting the highest standards in the U.S.

“It’s not enough just to have a pretty face,” says Kelli O’Brien, chief operating officer at Riverview Medical Center. “We are 100 percent committed to ensuring that our patients receive the highest quality care from the moment they enter our doors to the time they go home. We aim to provide outstanding care in a serene, healing environment and despite the rankings, believe that Riverview Medical Center is truly the most beautiful hospital – inside and out.”

In addition to offering expert clinical care in a variety of fields, including surgery, cancer care, obstetrics and women’s services, outpatient procedures, emergency care and inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, Riverview Medical Center also offers unique services such as a free concierge that will assist with personal errands, requests, and room service for both patients and guests.
