Fremont-Rideout Health Group Breaks Ground on $225 Million Expansion

The CEO and Board of Directors of Rideout Health Group last evening broke ground for the construction of a $225 million expansion of Rideout Memorial Hospital that will transform six square blocks in this historic small town into a regional medical center.

The new six-story hospital building, which will be connected to the current structure, will include a two-story maternity center, a rooftop heliport for Life Flight operations and a major expansion of the Emergency Department, which is the only Level III Trauma and STEMI-receiving Center between Chico and Sacramento.

The groundbreaking celebration included a First Responder Color Guard comprised of fire fighters from six regional service areas, performances by groups that reflect the region’s cultural diversity, from Taiko drums to Mariachi to Bhangra, and a display of works by local artists that will become part of the new “Art of Healing” program that will place original art throughout the medical center, including patient rooms.

The expansion addresses the increasing needs of the greater Yuba-Sutter community for emergency and acute care (last year Rideout handled more than 55,000 emergency room visits in a facility designed for less than half that number), and Rideout’s growing number of specialty medical services for residents of the hospital’s five-county region (Yuba, Sutter, Colusa, western Nevada, southern Butte counties).

Already underway on the same campus is the expansion of The Rideout Cancer Center that will open this summer and nearly double the size of the original facility. The Hospital also houses The Heart Center at Rideout, which offers the full range of cardiac care, from diagnostic and interventional to surgery and rehabilitation. Imaging and laboratory facilities, medical offices, parking, and a 24/7 urgent care clinic operated by Peach Tree Health are already part of the complex.

Rideout Health Group, the largest non-government employer in both Yuba and Sutter Counties, is an independent, truly non-profit, community-based healthcare organization that creates jobs for nearly 2,000 Californians. In fulfillment of its mission to provide quality healthcare to everyone, regardless of financial circumstance, FRHG last year provided more than $25 million in unreimbursed or free medical care to uninsured or underinsured patients.
