Renovation of the Emergency Department in Waconia

The Emergency Department on the Waconia campus was last renovated 25 years ago and is in need of updates to improve our patients’ experience and privacy. As the design scope considerations for the new addition take shape, it is planned that emergency care will be delivered in a new, innovative care model. Essentially, Ridgeview plans to triage emergency patients into one of four distinct types based on the level of care needed and length of stay required: Acute and Critical Care, Rapid (urgent) Care, Virtual Care (connecting with patients online) and Mental Health Evaluation and Stabilization.

Minneapolis Heart Institute at Ridgeview Heart Center

Ridgeview’s Heart Center complements our existing Cardiac Care services and expands our ability to care for patients on our campus. It offers state-of-the-art technologies so that patients won't have to be transferred to another facility and leave their community at such a vulnerable time. Through much philanthropic support, the Heart Center brings advanced care to the Ridgeview community.

Pay it Forward Fund

Pay It Forward Fund was founded in 2005 by a breast cancer survivor. Since then, we’ve helped patients buy groceries, pay their mortgages, heat their homes, keep their lights and their water on, and repair their cars so they can drive to chemo.
For hundreds of women in need, these gifts have made a difference at a time of crisis.
