Marathon Week- Riverside Health System

Posted on February 28, 2018 at 10:09 AM by Communications Department

As race day quickly approaches, we are continuing to bring you daily spotlights on different people and organizations involved with the One City Marathon. Today we recognize Riverside Health System. They have been a loyal supporter, partner and sponsor of the One City Marathon since its inception four years ago. 

2-28 riversideKristian Hill, Licensed Athletic Trainer for Riverside Sports Medicine, says the One City Marathon Expo and race day is a grander display of what Riverside does on an everyday basis. As of last March, Riverside’s entire health system transitioned to one Electronic Medical Record system that eases communication across departments and increases interdisciplinary collaboration, ultimately providing patient-centered care. During this weekend and on race day, you will notice collaboration between Riverside Sports Medicine, Riverside Emergency Department, Riverside Emergency Management team, Newport News Police and Fire Departments, and countless volunteers that make this weekend a truly special event in the community.
