Indoor Visitation Is Now Open!

Due to having no positive cases of COVID-19 in our staff for over 14 days as well as the Ottawa County Positivity rating coming down, we are able to open up indoor visitation for our residents’ guests, beginning Tuesday, February 9. 

Families are currently being notified and letters are being sent to residents and their representatives. 
We will also be opening our Open Dining back up in the Ottawa Dining Room, and Large Group activities will be held back in our Multipurpose Room!
We thank our #ViewCrew for making this possible for our residents and all you have done to keep yourself, your family and our residents safe! Please continue the precautions put in place as we do have some residents who have chosen not to vaccination, or were unable due to the timing of their admission. 
Nursing Home/Memory Care and Short Term Rehab Call the Front Desk to schedule a visit 419-898-2851 (Ext. 4000) 

We are taking steps to reduce the spread of infection.

Given the high risk to the population that we serve, we have adopted a number of measures designed to protect our residents and staff.

  • These include a suspension of indoor or outdoor visitor policy
  • Enhanced health screening of residents and staff
  • Isolating residents with symptoms
  • Sending staff with symptoms home to isolate
  • Additional use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other measures informed by guidance from federal agencies, such as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
  • All residents and staff of Riverview will be tested every 3-7 days until we have reached 2 full weeks of negative testing for all residents and staff.
  • Large group activities will be suspended and will move to Door Way activities with social distancing, face masks, hand and surface sanitation.
  • Open Dining in our Harvest Glen (Stations 1 & 2) Dining Room has been suspended. Each station will have a designated time for meals. Masks must be worn to and from the dining room. Social Distancing, hand and surface sanitation will be done before, after and during the meal service.  

We are in the process of notifying all resident representatives by phone and have the linked letter prepared for residents and representatives as a follow up. 

If you have any further questions, please let us know. 

Thank you,


Kendra M. German, LNHA


Ottawa Co. Riverview Healthcare Campus

(There have been changes made to the “Employee Return to work Criteria” on pages 18-19. These changes have come from the CDC. There is also a new “COVID-19 Contract Tracing and Testing Protocol” on page 56 and a “Confirmed COVID-19 Resident Protocol Checklist” on page 58.)

Hartford Admissions:

Cara, our Case Manager, has continued to take referrals through the COVID-19 crisis and we are starting to work with those families about possible admission into the Hartford on the River Assisted Living, if appropriate financially, physically and mentally. Those admitting will be required to have a COVID-19 test, will be quarantined to their homes until test results are received. Once a negative test result can be confirmed, that resident may move into the Hartford for Assisted Living, but will be quarantined to their units for 14 days with full droplet precautions as we are doing on the Nursing Home side of the campus with all new admissions. The resident’s items will be dropped off at the door and our Maintenance Staff and other staff members will assist in getting the resident’s unit set up.

While Riverview is owned and operated by the Ottawa County Commissioners, the facility is financially independent. Riverview receives no funds from the Ottawa County general fund. Riverview’s revenue stream includes Medicare, Medicaid, Private Pay Individuals, and commercial insurances among a few other smaller revenue sources.

Riverview does have a five year .5 mill tax levy which brings in approximately $850,000 per year. This tax levy is utilized for capital projects to keep the facility in good condition to remain an asset to the Ottawa County tax payers, a comfortable home to our residents and an attractive choice in our competitive senior housing industry.

This site is updated with current Riverview capital projects funded by our Riverview levy.

The Riverview Renovation Project is funded by a 10 million dollar Bond being paid through the facility’s currently .5 mil tax levy.

Your Stay at Riverview

Whether it’s for a single day or Riverview will become your home, we offer exceptional nursing care and support services and much needed peace of mind to family members and caregivers. The campus offers private and semi-private accommodations along with 24 hour nursing services. We also offer physical, occupational, and speech therapies. Cottage Cove suites are available for short term rehabilitation needs. For patients that require memory care “The Lighthouse” is a memory care unit that provides a safe protected environment. Daily recreational activities are provided on a daily basis and include games, trips, and late morning and afternoon snacks.

Your stay at Riverview includes personal products, meals and snacks, laundry and housekeeping services, and one haircut per month. Your needs will be met by a caring and thoughtful staff.

Come Play in Our Backyard

Located along the scenic Portage River Riverview Healthcare Campus provides wonderful opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Come stroll along our Riverwalk, a quarter mile walking track, and possibly see some local wildlife. Take a stroll on Centennial Lane, a walkway bordered by trees which have been planted to honor our residents while they celebrate their 100th birthday. There are also picnic tables and a grill available for family cookouts. If you enjoy fishing there is access to the Portage River. Maybe there will be a story about the “one” that got away. Our backyard also provides a quiet place to relax or watch a beautiful sunset.
