How is medical care managed at Riverbrook?

Riverbrook’s on-site medical coordinator carefully tracks each woman’s medicines, needs and appointments. Each woman at Riverbrook has an annual physical, bi-annual dental check-up and eye exams. In addition, specialists are available in the local area for more specific medical needs. All medical visits are staffed and door-to-door transportation is provided, and follow-up with pharmacies and families is a routine part of excellent medical care. Monthly breast exams, attention to lab reports, and oversight of all medications by a registered nurse are regular parts of each individual’s care.
