Greetings, KoolC, and welcome. You asked:

<<Hello, I am brand spankin new at this and would like some advice on 403's. I work in a "non profit" so they say hospital..My employer chooses not to match my contributions. I know it is tax deffered, but i think the plans that are offered will be heavily laced with fees. Is there a better option than my company 403b?? >>

Certainly there may be. And in the absence of an employer match, you may be better off in a Roth IRA for the first $2K of your money. But you gotta do the comparative analysis of your options first to see if that would be true. See my 13 Steps to Foolish Retirement Planning at http://www.fool.com/Retirement/Retirement.htm for some considerations. Pay particular attention to Step 4.
