Dignity, Privacy & Security
The RiverBend Cremation Center facility is the first of its kind in the entire state of Iowa. We're pleased to be setting new standards for families who prefer cremation.
Dignity and privacy are paramount in every aspect of our cremation service. From the moment a delivery vehicle arrives on-site at the RiverBend Cremation Center, the vehicle enters directly into the facility and the garage door is then closed in order to maintain every measure of dignity and proper decorum for the handling of the body.
Dedicated safe areas - including secure refrigeration facilities - are available only by card-swipe access. These secure areas are utilized for proper, dignified and safe holding areas where the body can be held until all necessary paperwork has been received and verified, at which time cremation can commence.
Complete Care Center
It's worth noting that RiverBend is currently the only stand-alone cremation facility in the State of Iowa with a complete, secure, licensed Embalming/Preparation Center on-site. Embalming can be done here if requested, and the Medical Examiner/Coroner can also utilize this space if further investigation is required prior to cremation. This secure space is also available to Organ Procurement Organizations for organ and tissue procurement as requested.
