The original hospital was built in 1970, but in October 1996, River Park completed a new facility that increased in size to 200,000 square feet on 14.2 acres. The new hospital was designed to accommodate the community’s needs as well as ever changing medical technologies. The doors opened on the new hospital on October 31, 1996.
