January 08, 2015

Southeast Hospital experienced no shortage of babies in 2014. A total of 1,027 babies were delivered at the Hospital last year, including 17 sets of twins.

August was the busiest month, with 105 deliveries at the Cape Girardeau hospital.

The number of deliveries rose by 14 percent over the previous year, says Director of Maternal Child Services Sheila Beussink, MSN, RN, NE-BC.

“Reaching this milestone in births means Southeast continues to be, as it has been for more than 80 years, a trusted place for families to have their ‘special delivery.’” Beussink notes.

She adds, “We are very proud of the enhancements in care we made in 2014 including our newly renovated Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, family waiting area and the OB nurses’ station, all of which opened in July. We have a great team of the most experienced physicians, nurses and staff members who do an awesome job of supporting each family with a unique experience and individualized care.
