Riverview Auxiliary

An Organization....With a Big Heart!

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. 

The Auxiliary at Riverview Healthcare Campus is an area-wide organization functioning as a separate, independent entity to Riverview Healthcare Campus. The Auxiliary is devoted to providing assistance to the wellbeing of the residents and staff, along with the financial assistance for activities, equipment and other enhancements benefiting the campus.

Auxiliary meetings are held the first Monday every other months (beginning in February) at 9:30am in the Multi-purpose room, except for June when the organization meets at 7pm for the Annual Meeting.

The Auxiliary at Riverview is responsible for coordinating the resident monthly birthday parties, the staffing and purchasing for the Riverview Gift Shop, coordinating the Valentine Tea, and assisting with baked good and resident transportation at the Mother’s and Father’s Day Celebrations.

The Auxiliary is always seeking new members to assist in any or all of its activities. Dues are $10 annually or $50 for a lifetime membership. Membership forms are available at the Riverview Information Desk or you can download the form and drop it off.
