The Riverside University Health System is transforming how it delivers healthcare to its local communities and has selected WD to design the next phase of RUHS’s strategy to bring hope and healing to those they serve.

Riverside University Health System (RUHS) is engaging Westgroup Designs (WD) to design and deliver multiple revitalization projects at the 439-bed Moreno Valley Medical Center. From its humble beginnings in 1893 as Riverside County’s first general hospital, RUHS Medical Center stands today as a pillar of excellence in health care and medical education in the region.

Westgroup Designs is providing planning, architecture and interior design services to transform various areas in the medical center into a more cohesive, engaging experience and sense-of-place for visitors and medical staff. WD is beginning by designing a new beacon at the Women’s Center entry plaza to provide increased street visibility without overbearing pedestrian traffic; transforming the existing Medical Mall atrium space into a welcoming and relaxing waiting area with enhanced wayfinding; and creating a serene retreat at the public cafeteria and medical staff lounge and dining room.

WD’s design solutions will deliver an enhanced experience at the Moreno Valley Medical Center in support of RUHS’s vision to lead the transformation of healthcare and inspire wellness.
