“The experience my family and I had with Dr. Campbell and Glacial Ridge Hospital for prenatal care and the birth of our daughter was outstanding.”
“I was 30 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child and wasn’t happy with the care I was receiving elsewhere. When one of my friends suggested giving Glacial Ridge a try, I agreed to make an appointment and go from there. I had one appointment,t and that’s all it took to know that I wanted to deliver my baby at Glacial Ridge.”
“When we got home we reflected on our delivery and stay experience at GRHS so many times and agreed that it was a 100% positive experience. We were so happy and impressed by the care we received, the beautiful new facility, and just by the staff in general…Each one of them made us feel so comfortable and grateful to have met them.”
