“I was 30 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child and wasn’t happy with the care I was receiving at a different facility. When one of my dearest friends suggested giving Glacial Ridge a try, I agreed I would make an appointment and go from there. I had one appointment and that’s all it took to know that I wanted to deliver my baby at Glacial Ridge. My OB appointments were always great and extremely thorough, which I appreciated. When it came time for delivery (via c-section), it was a little scary but everyone truly sticks to the motto of heartfelt care; we were treated like family by everyone we encountered…The care is truly ABOVE and BEYOND!…” — Maggie L., Alexandria
“…the nurse and Dr. said that I could go home, that I wasn’t progressing very fast yet. On Thursday we went in at 4pm and they kept me. The nurse, Brooke, was wonderful and very nice. She had also been there the night before so she was ready for us. When I left Wednesday, she said, ‘Well, we will keep your room set up for you.’ Brooke made sure that we had everything that we needed. She gave many options for pain management and with her, my husband, and my mother for support, all I needed was Nitrous….” — Christina A., Glenwood
“…we had lots of nerves and questions with this being our first child, but everything was explained so thoroughly and clearly. Both my husband and I were kept at ease during our time in the clinic and hospital.
Our son Myles was a bit stubborn coming into this world, and when our stamina was running thin, and the day was getting long, every single staff member that came into the room greeted us with renewed energy, a bright smile, and always asking if there was anything they could get us before leaving the room – and we felt like they really meant it….” — Kelsey B., Glenwood
GRHS was my first choice with my first pregnancy and it was such a good experience, I went back for my second pregnancy….” — Kari M., Willmar
“… I’ve never had an experience like I have at Glacial Ridge! I recommend them to everyone I know in the area. I cannot thank Dr. Campbell and Megan enough for everything they did to make my labor and delivery as comfortable as they could. This was the best hospital experience ever!…” — Miranda S., Cyrus
“…Jessie (van der Hagen, Certified Nurse Midwife) saw me every week and was there waiting for me when I went into labor at week 36. She welcomed our baby boy into the world; it was the most amazing experience with her calm, quiet presence next to me, guiding me along to the best delivery possible. She was my strength and comforter during the most intense portions of labor and was as excited as we were to meet our little one – as though it was her own. She truly cares for you as if you were the only one in the world. What a great feeling that is!…” — Kari M., Willmar

“I’m so proud to say we go to GRHS. We have been into the clinic for the worst and best.
