I have 2 of my children at Fairview Ridges hospital. (My first was at Southdale). It is much smaller than Southdale, and significantly more personal. The nurses were wonderful both times, the triage was great, the food was so-so, but hey it is is a hospital. The labor and delivery nurse was absolutely wonderful. The rooms are nice and private. My husband was able to stay over in a cot, which he didnt even complain about! This is a good choice!
