Innovation & Training - Riverside Community Care

Healthcare and human services are rapidly evolving.  Today, as both government and insurers seek to implement healthcare reform – integrating care, controlling costs, and placing the person served in the lead – we have the advantage of decades of experience doing just that.  Our emphasis on excellence is the primary reason we have grown to be one of the State’s largest and most respected, non-profit, behavioral healthcare organizations. It has earned us national recognition, the respect of our peers, loyalty from our employees, and high ratings from the people we serve.

Innovation

Riverside has been steeped in innovation since its inception. Here’s just a small sample of what we’ve created:

  • Forming a partnership with Beth Israel Deaconess Care Organization integrating our clinicians within physicians’ offices.
  • Starting five Employment Collaboratives to help people with a disability find jobs.
  • Developing the Riverside Trauma Center to ensure that every community in the Commonwealth has support following a traumatic event.
  • Offering Community Transition Services for people who need support but have not been willing to utilize services in the past.
  • Expanding consultation services for people with developmental disabilities who have problem behaviors that could cause them to be placed out of the home or lose their residential placement.

Training

We are pleased to share comments from the people we serve:

"I can't say enough wonderful things about the Newton Outreach Program. Many other therapists were unable to break through my son’s strong, protective shell. Quickly and quietly, Marianne gained his trust and she became part of all of our lives. You helped us gain wisdom and taught us how to appreciate the wonderful aspects of life while accepting the challenges."
