Mother & Newborn

We know the decision on where to have your baby is very important. We know you are concerned  about safety and experience, and you should be.  We know you want assurance that you and your baby will get the best care available.

At Georgetown Community Hospital, you will receive excellent care by an experienced staff that really cares about our patients and the new little lives that are coming into the world.

Think about what you are looking for in a birthing facility:

Experience – Our Women’s Services staff has more than 250 years of combined experience, including 10 nurses who each have more than 15 years of experience delivering babies.  

Availability – Yes, we are a small town on the outskirts of a large town with well-known, huge hospitals.  But is bigger always better?  Here at Georgetown Community Hospital, we are easy to find and easy to navigate.  We promise you won’t get lost in a parking garage or a maze of never-ending hallways!

Community-Based – We get to know our patients because they are part of our community.  You’ll have no more than 2 nurses caring for each day during your stay with us.

Education – You can also benefit from our childbirth classes that are held six times per year, and seek the advice of our lactation services for those breast-feeding questions you might have.

Soothing Environment – Our Labor and Post-partum Suites are calming and peaceful; just what you need during this exciting time in your life!

Lauren Beaven, MD is a local physician that delivers here at Georgetown Community Hospital. She is employed by UK Healthcare, but delivers exclusively at Georgetown Community Hospital. This means that we have a very close affiliation with the University of Kentucky in the event a high-risk situation develops.
