Ridgeview Medical Center




Ridgeview Medical Center is an independent, nonprofit, regional health care system located just 35 minutes west of Minneapolis on Highway 5.

The hospitals, associated clinics and physicians have a well-earned reputation for clinical excellence and extraordinary service. Patients say that the Ridgeview experience is decidedly different from what they encounter at other health care facilities2. Ridgeview serves a population of approximately 300,000 people, primarily from its five-county service area of Carver, northern Sibley, southern Wright, western Hennepin and eastern McLeod. Ridgeview is one of the largest employers in Carver County, with more than 1,900 employees. It also has 500 volunteers supporting the organization.
