Maternity Center at St. Elizabeth

At St. Elizabeth, we believe that every birth is a miracle and every miracle is unique. We want your birth experience to truly be your own—we take into account your family, traditions, customs, and beliefs as well as your physical health. You and your baby are always in good hands at CHI Health St. Elizabeth. We believe every birth can be skillfully managed when an expert team is in place. 

At St. Elizabeth, you'll find a welcoming, comfortable environment. A team of affiliated obstetricians work side-by-side with labor and delivery nurses and other maternity staff to deliver the highest quality care for moms and babies.

Award-winning Maternity Care

St. Elizabeth was the first hospital in the nation to receive two Gold Seals of Approval™ from The Joint Commission for our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and high-risk obstetrics. The Maternity Center at St. Elizabeth has been designated a Safe Sleep Hospital Champion by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.

If a high-risk situation arises, the maternal high-risk team and the neonatal intensive care unit have the experience needed to take care of you and your baby. Both provide award-winning care unsurpassed by any other facility in the state or region.

OB/GYN Hospitalists

As another added layer of safety, St. Elizabeth offers board certified OB/GYN hospitalists.  A hospitalist is a physician who specializes in caring for patients in the hospital. If your physician is not present when you arrive at Labor and Delivery, our board-certified OB/GYN hospitalists are available to all expectant mothers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We are the first in Lincoln to make hospital-based obstetricians, called OB/GYN hospitalists, available to all expectant mothers.
