Your safety and comfort matter to us

Our birthing suites and dedicated operating room for C-sections and emergency procedures assure the best for you and your baby. Rooms also include free Wi-Fi so you can immediately announce your happy news.

After your baby’s birth, our experienced baby specialists will help you learn how to care for your baby. Certified, caring lactation consultants are on hand to assist and support you for successful breastfeeding, and can continue to support you after you go home. Breastfeeding supplies, including breast pumps, are available in our on-site Fairview Pharmacy.

Should your baby arrive early or need advanced care, he or she can be transported to the Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis.

What sets us apart?

  • You'll receive personal attention from skilled nurses and doctors. We help bring nearly 500 babies into the world each year, yet view every birth as unique. Our goal is to make sure your experience is exceptional; we'll work with you to design a birth plan tailored to your specific needs and preferences. 
  • We’re a designated BabyFriendly® Hospital – a prestigious honor that recognizes facilities that offer mothers the information, skills and confidence to successfully breastfeed their babies.
