Ridgeview Medical Center Birthing Suites

If you are having a baby, you should check out Ridgeview Medical Center’s birthing suites. With so many nice amenities, it’s like staying in a hotel room.

The birthing center features six birthing suites with full-sized bathtubs, offering mothers the option to labor in water and have a water birth aided by certified nurse midwives along with 18 private “spa-like” postpartum suites with hotel-like d├ęcor and amenities.

Each room include:

  • Flat Screen TV
  • Surround Sound
  • iPod Hookup along with other MP3 players.
  • DVD Players
  • A/V in and out jacks for other electrons.
  • Spacious layouts.
  • Postpartum suites have a couch that turns into a single bed for dads or visitors.
  • My Brest Friend for breast feedings.
  • A nursery to send your little one to so you can get some sleep.
  • Friendly staff.
  • Quiet floors so you don’t get any hospital noise.
  • In room thermostats.
  • The latest in medical technology.
  • There are also two kitchens on the floor with free cookies, juice, milk, popsicle, ice cream, cereal, fruit, sandwiches and other goodies for patients and family.
  • And so much more.

Specialized care for high-risk deliveries will be coming in fall 2009!

Ridgeview Medical Center – Hospital Review

I didn’t plan on writing a review on Ridgeview Medical Center in Waconia but my wife fell the other day and broke her ankle. We ended up at the hospital for three days and found out it’s a great hospital.

First off, our accident happened on a Saturday afternoon in Eau Claire Wisconsin, so we weren’t exactly close to home. But our ER doctor on Eau Claire called Ridgeview Medical Center and they told us to come in as soon as we got back and he’d take care of us. It turns out that the doctor’s schedule was full Monday & Tuesday and probably Wednesday but nothing was scheduled for Sunday. So he said ‘come on in’ and took care of us right away. That’s service!

My wife had to have surgery and everyone was very informative and nice. We were very impressed and well taken care of. Even for me, the husband, they treated me very well and made sure I was well informed at all times. They even let me say as late as I wanted and come in as early as I wanted.

I’ve been to the Mayo Clinic for everything growing up, and the Ridgeview Medical Center seems much more friendly and inviting. I’d highly recommend it and I’m glad we live so close to a great hospital.
