Riverside Hospital is located between 1601 and 1631 North Summit Street, Lucas County, Toledo, Ohio.

The Riverside Hospital was opened in 1883 as a home for unwed mothers in North Toledo. Originally under the supervision of the Sisters of Mercy, later it became part of Mercy Health Partners, and the name was changed to Riverside Mercy Hospital sometime after 1983. Riverside Hospital had around 270 beds at the time of its closure.

In 2002 the hospital closed with the opening of the new hospital Mercy St. Anne, but it was not completely abandoned for some time after. The hospital is now owned by the Toledo Public Schools. It is watched for trespassers but yet still people find a way in and it decays, keeping its past all to itself.

It is also believed to be haunted by former workers and visitors alike because there are some parts, like the tunnels, that banging noises and unforgettable chills and presences can be felt and heard in.
