From the Administrator

On behalf of everyone here at The Crossing at Riverside Health and Rehabilitation, it is my privilege to welcome you to our family of caring. My name is Christie Ruhter, and I am the administrator in charge of overseeing your short-term rehabilitation and long-term care needs. Our family of caregivers will endeavor to make your stay comfortable, enjoyable, and safe. Our goal is to give you the quality care you expect, and the peace of mind you deserve. We encourage your family and friends to visit frequently. We also encourage your family to participate in planning your care.
