Our Maternity Unit is a private wing of our Acute Care area.

Our Maternity Unit offers a caring and progressive environment to new mothers and families. Our services include:
Combining the newest technologies with modern design is our way of making sure advanced care is always there for you and your family.
Baby's First Picture
It's a special moment when moms and dads see their baby for the first time in the mother's womb. Ultrasound uses sound waves to safely and painlessly gather detailed information on how your baby is developing. Mothers who have their ultrasounds performed at Beatrice Community Hospital receive a complementary CD with photos of their baby's images.
Lullaby Announces Each Birth
The arrival of each baby is "musically" announced throughout Beatrice Community Hospital with several measures of Brahms' Lullaby, and always brings smiles to everyone in the hospital.
Handmade Baby Caps
Each infant receives a handmade cap, lovingly made by volunteers in the community. Each cap is unique and becomes a treasured family keepsake.
Infant Security System
A security system keeps your baby safe while in Beatrice Community Hospital. A bracelet is placed on the infant's ankle after birth. The system monitors the baby's location so hospital staff can transport your infant, but will send an alarm throughout the hospital if taken off the unit by someone other than hospital staff.
The footprints of each baby are posted on a Bulletin Board, announcing the first name and weight of every boy and girl.
Our two Labor/Delivery/Recovery suites are located within the Maternity Unit and are attractively decorated with comfortable furnishings which offer safety, relaxation, and privacy without disruptive room transfers. Learn more.
