What to Expect

Hospital Pre-Registration and Finances

Be sure to contact your insurance carrier early in your pregnancy to discuss your coverage. Most insurance providers require pre-certification before admission or procedures. If your insurance company provides you with a pre-certification number, be sure to let us know when you register for your hospital stay.

You can preregister online, or by calling our Admission Services team at 417-269-4051. To discuss your hospital costs in advance, review our pricing information.

What to Pack

Bring what you’ll need and what will provide you comfort, but keep your packing as simple as you can. You’ll want to leave your valuables at home. Some things you might want to pack include:

  • Phone chargers
  • Night gown and robe 
  • Toiletries 
  • Socks and slippers
  • Outfits for you and your baby to wear home 
  • Prenatal vitamins 

When You Arrive

Our labor and delivery units feature comfortable, home-like private rooms with television, phone, seating for family, a private bathroom and jacuzzi tubs for laboring. But rest assured – the most advanced medical equipment is here too, in case the need should arise. Enter through the north entrance of the hospital and proceed to the Admissions Services area Monday – Friday from 6 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. After hours or on the weekend, go to the Emergency Room.

All mother and baby areas are protected by security systems designed for the safety of you and your family. If you have questions about our security efforts, ask your nurse.

Postpartum Units

Once your baby is born, you’ll rest and recover in our comfortable postpartum units. We encourage you and your family to bond with your new baby by rooming in - keeping your baby in your room with you.

We offer private rooms with a rocking chair, infant warmer, comfortable seating for family, television, and a private bathroom with a shower.

Going Home

All newborns go home with a free SIDS-prevention sleep sack, courtesy our hospital auxiliaries.

Once you’re home, you aren’t on your own. If you have questions about you or your baby’s health, contact you or your child’s health care provider. You can also research common questions and concerns through our online health tools.
