What Sets Us Apart
Riverton Hospital was the first hospital in Utah to house a special pediatric unit operated by Primary Children’s Hospital. Your child can receive the world-class care Primary Children’s is known for, closer to home, which will reduce travel time for you while your child is in the hospital and help you spend more time at your child’s bedside. Children will need to travel to Primary Children’s Hospital to receive care for more complex cases, but many conditions can be cared for here. We provide state-of-the art-cancer care and treatments close to home. If you have cancer, you may need frequent, regular treatments. Patients can receive chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and infusion/IV services significantly reducing commuting and treatment time during a period when you may have decreased energy and stamina. Riverton Hospital has received a Level IV trauma center designation from the Utah Bureau of Emergency Medical Services. Earning a Level IV trauma center designation certifies Riverton Hospital can provide advanced trauma life support to evaluate and stabilize patients before transferring them to a higher-level trauma center, if needed. Level IV trauma centers must also meet strict criteria and be equipped to provide advanced trauma life support at all times.
Since November 2, 2009, Riverton Hospital has served as a full-service community hospital dedicated to high-quality patient care in a healing environment.
