Patient and guest experience
Opened in 1984, Fairview Ridges Hospital offers a warm and welcoming environment to patients and their guests. We offer many amenities to make you comfortable while at our facility.
We are acting to stem the spread of the flu virus by implementing a temporary visitor policy in our hospitals to reduce patient and employee exposure. The temporary policies took effect Tuesday, December 16, and will last the duration of the flu season. We have taken this step after the Minnesota Department of Health declared influenza to be widespread in the state.
We ask that you do not visit the hospital if you may have the flu or if you have close contact with someone who is sick. The hospitals will make exceptions to the visitor rules on a case-by-case basis, for compassionate reasons.
At Fairview Ridges Hospital, we are committed to making your stay, and the visits of your guests, as pleasant as possible.
We offer amenities such as room service, free Wi-Fi Internet access, a gift shop, an espresso cart, daily mail service, flower delivery, a cash machine, a cashier and an excellent cafeteria menu. Please let us know if there are other ways we can make your stay more comfortable.

Since the hospital opened it's doors in 1984, this 150,000 square-foot space increase is the single largest expansion.
The building will feature an observation unit and new laboratory, while the medical building will include cardiology, oncology and musculoskeletal care. It’ll also contain an ambulatory surgery center, an imaging center, cardiac rehabilitation, a retail pharmacy and a durable medical equipment store.
