Riverland Medical Clinic

THE RIVERLAND Medical Center (RMC) Board of Directors and administration signed an agreement last week with Sunrise Medical to utilize the RMC campus as an adolescent psychiatric hospital. Sunrise will move into the old hospital building when the new hospital facility opens next year. Sunrise says it will employ 25 initially and may employ as many as 100 in the future. The company projects a payroll of $1.8 million in its first year, $2.25 million the second and $3.25 million in the third. On hand for the announcement Sept. 10 were, bottom from left, RMC board members Cherie Lipsey and James King; Paul Coburn and Kyle Coburn, both of Sunrise; and RMC Chairman Jim Graves.
