Certified Wound Care Nurse Helped Save My Foot

“My story starts with orthopedic surgery to fuse my right heel at the University of MN Health Clinic in Minneapolis.

Glacial Ridge Hospital Staff Is Like No Other

“The care was excellent and the staff is not like any hospital I’ve ever been in or visited.

Heartfelt Care From Homecare and Therapies

“The homecare I received from GRHS was a very good experience for me. The therapists – OT and PT – and nurses always came with a friendly smile and were very helpful in explaining how the home sessions would help heal and strengthen my body after spinal surgery.

Glad to Have Homecare and Therapy Close to Home

My Fitness Experience

“I’ve been working out at the Wellness Center for about 2 years. When I started I didn’t have a specific goal in mind besides getting in better shape. I started out slow by just walking on the treadmill. After a couple months, I got the courage to try a Yoga class. That’s when I met Shannon;…

Physical Therapists are Wonderful

“I am grateful for what Angela and Kacia did for me. They pushed me and helped me through my turmoil. They both made me strong mentally and physically. They didn’t give up on me and everything I asked for, they did. I will never forget what they did for me. I would recommend them both if…

Knowledgeable Team Really Cares

“I would recommend them to everyone! I have never had such caring people watch over me and take care of me! So often you get ‘pushed’ to other services outside our area, but Glacial Ridge has never done this to me! They always get to the root of my problems. The surgical team here is…
