The first hospital was built in 1922 and has since been replaced by a modern Provincial Hospital. This hospital operates in the Mossel Bay/Langeberg Health District of the Southern Cape Region.
Riversdale is situated at the foot of the Sleeping Beauty Peak, close to the eastern end of the Lange Berg, on the bank of the Vet River, a branch of the Kaffirkuils River, that flows into the Indian Ocean at Stil Bay.
Riversdale was named after Harry Rivers, a local government official, and proclaimed in 1938.
Some people say you will smell Riversdale before you see it. This is because of the "Agathosma" shrubs that grow in the area. The smell is not unpleasant, more like that of a hospital, an antiseptic-like smell.
