Riverview COVID-19 positive cases update.

Resident testing was NOV. 3! No Positive Test! 

At around 8:30pm (Monday, November 2) we received confirmation from Quest Lab that 1 employee tested positive through our employee testing last Friday (10/30). The employee has been notified and is isolating at this time. 

Our Resident Representatives have been notified through a phone call this morning. We will also be sending out a letter to all residents and representatives with this information. 
  • Residents are encouraged to stay in their rooms. and CAN NOT Leave their nursing Units for any reason!
  • Meals will be Room Service, the dining rooms will be closed to communal dining
  • Therapy on these units will be done in resident rooms as well.
  • Outbreak testing will begin today with our Residents and will continue every Tuesday. THIS WILL BEGIN TODAY With our Antigen Test. If a resident test positive, we will open our COVID unit but will not consider it a reportable positive until confirmed with a Lab test. 
  • Staff outbreak testing will be done every Friday at 6:15am/9am/3pm.
  • Outbreak testing will continue until the facility has had no positives (Staff or Resident) for 14 consecutive days. Quarantine will also be lifted at this time. 
  • Residents will be screened 3 times daily for signs and symptoms of COVID-19
  • There will be no beautician or barber during this time. (With the exception of some "regular" Assisted Living Clients). Kristen will be in on a limited schedule for these residents.  Please make sure to wash the resident's hair, at least weekly during this time. 
  • Only EMERGENCY contractors should be permitted in the facility at this time, and will require a POC test prior to entering!
  • There should be no out of the facility appointments unless Lisa Dobbelare, Director of Nursing, deems the appointment medically necessary
The #ViewCrew has still done an absolutely outstanding job of keeping this virus out for this long! We knew increased testing would make a confirmed case more likely! We appreciate all they are doing, and I know they will keep it up! 
Thank you,

Indoor Visitation Protocols & Education Dated 10/8/2020



Hartford Admissions:


Cara, our Case Manager, has continued to take referrals through the COVID-19 crisis and we are starting to work with those families about possible admission into the Hartford on the River Assisted Living, if appropriate financially, physically and mentally. Those admitting will be required to have a COVID-19 test, will be quarantined to their homes until test results are received. Once a negative test result can be confirmed, that resident may move into the Hartford for Assisted Living,  but will be quarantined to their units for 14 days with full droplet precautions as we are doing on the Nursing Home side of the campus with all new admissions.  The resident's items will be dropped off at the door and our Maintenance Staff and other staff members will assist in getting the resident's unit set up. 



While Riverview is owned and operated by the Ottawa County Commissioners, the facility is financially independent. Riverview receives no funds from the Ottawa County general fund. Riverview’s revenue stream includes Medicare, Medicaid, Private Pay Individuals, and commercial insurances among a few other smaller revenue sources.

Riverview does have a five year .5 mill tax levy which brings in approximately $850,000 per year. This tax levy is utilized for capital projects to keep the facility in good condition to remain an asset to the Ottawa County tax payers, a comfortable home to our residents and an attractive choice in our competitive senior housing industry.

This site is updated with current Riverview capital projects funded by our Riverview levy.

The Riverview Renovation Project is funded by a 10 million dollar Bond being paid through the facility's currently .5 mil tax levy.

Come Play in Our Backyard

Located along the scenic Portage River Riverview Healthcare Campus provides wonderful opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Come stroll along our Riverwalk, a quarter mile walking track, and possibly see some local wildlife. Take a stroll on Centennial Lane, a walkway bordered by trees which have been planted to honor our residents while they celebrate their 100th birthday. There are also picnic tables and a grill available for family cookouts. If you enjoy fishing there is access to the Portage River. Maybe there will be a story about the “one” that got away. Our backyard also provides a quiet place to relax or watch a beautiful sunset.
