Although the institution is well over 100 years old, a modern, seismically compliant Medical Center opened in March 1998. The Medical Center is a 520,000 square foot, state-of-the-art, tertiary care, Level I trauma facility, licensed for a total of 439 beds. There are 362 licensed beds in the main acute-care hospital, and 77 licensed beds in a separate psychiatric facility. 12 outlying Community Health Center clinics provide services for our diverse patient population and act as a networked referral base for the Medical Center. RUHS has 12 operating rooms, a helipad located directly adjacent to the Trauma Center, and state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging services. The Emergency Department is currently undergoing renovation and expansion. There are adult, pediatric and neonatal intensive care units, a birthing center and complete pulmonary services, including hyperbaric oxygen treatments. All patient rooms are single occupancy. The award-winning Riverside University Health System - Medical Center is well designed and equipped to provide the latest in health care through the 21st century and beyond.

In May of 2020, the newly completed Medical Surgical Center (MSC) opened with expanded imaging services including a 3T MRI, PET/CT and molecular breast imaging capabilities. The MSC boasts 8 additional outpatient operating suites, expanded clinic space, pharmacy, laboratory, diagnostic services and a newly designed physical therapy and rehabilitation area.
