For Visitors

Visitor restrictions remain in place and are subject to change. Our staff greatly appreciate your understanding. Hospital visitor policy updated/effective March 1, 2022.

All hospitalized patients may have TWO healthy visitors/family members per day from 8:00 am – 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm – 6:30 pm daily.

Glacial Ridge is screening all employees, patients, and visitors in addition to requiring masks as another layer of protection against COVID-19. Vaccines are available.


See Visitor Hours.

Please contact the patient or their family to see if the patient has already had a visitor(s) currently allowed per day.

All mail, flowers, and gifts addressed to a patient will be brought to their room by hospital staff.

The hospital mailing address for patients is:

Patient Name, Glacial Ridge Hospital, 10 Fourth Ave SE, Glenwood, MN 56334

Any items received for patients after their discharge will be forwarded to their address. Any letters to be mailed out may be given to a member of the nursing staff who will see that they are mailed from the Business Office.

Due to the allergies of some individuals, ONLY latex-free balloons are allowed in the facility. We are virtually latex-free and use latex-free products as much as possible.
