News Articles on Riverview Psychiatric Center

Name of Hospital: Riverview Psychiatric Center

Location: Augusta, ME, USA


  • Portland Press Herald, “Report on Riverview Psychiatric Center shows need for fast action,” December 2016: oversight official said progress has been made, but not enough, as staffing and space issues persist. No mentions of restraint and seclusion made in article, but it seems unlikely that those issues resolved. Article reports that Gov. LePage and legislators were negotiating new facilities on Riverview grounds.

*Some other articles were written on the subject between December 2015 and August 2015; I picked the ones that seemed most pertinent. The Portland Press Herald allows 10 free articles a month if you wish to search “Riverview” on their website to find more articles.
