Now Open: UCR Health at Citrus Tower

May 11, 2017


On May 10, UCR Health celebrated the grand opening of two new medical suites at Citrus Tower in downtown Riverside. Located at 3390 University Avenue, this new UCR Health location helps to expand community access to quality medical services in the Riverside area. The first-floor space at Citrus Tower contains a multispecialty suite for neurology, sports medicine, and aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery services, as well as a second suite for psychiatry. Women’s health and pain management specialties will also be added soon. 

 “UCR Health has been growing to achieve our mission of Bringing Health Home,” said Michael Nduati, MD, chief executive officer of UCR Health. “The opening of these two medical suites aligns with our strategy to expand access to quality healthcare. We’re addressing a critical physician shortage in Inland Southern California, building capacity in specialties where there is community need.”

With nearly 11,000 square feet of space, UCR Health at Citrus Tower provides a comfortable patient-centered care environment while supporting efficient, collaborative work spaces for physicians, residents, medical students, and staff. In addition to 16 spacious exam rooms, there are two procedure rooms in the multispecialty suite, and one IV infusion room. The psychiatry suite includes ten consultation rooms with conversation space, designed exclusively for patient therapy. Underground parking is available, and the location offers convenient access to the 91 freeway.

UCR Health at Citrus Tower also has the unique capacity for telemedicine, where doctors can meet with patients by secure, closed-circuit video connection. Telemedicine is an increasingly popular approach for rural communities, providing access to specialty physicians without traveling long distances to get to the specialist’s office. This remote technology will allow UCR Health psychiatrists to work with patients in underserved areas, such as in the Coachella Valley and the High Desert. 

UCR Health physicians provide a wide range of routine, preventative, and specialty medical care. The Citrus Tower medical offices expand our ability to deliver the very best care to our community, including access to trusted specialists if the need arises. Doors opened to patients on Monday, May 1.
