Highland County’s Highest Standard
At the Florida Hospital Heartland Jarrett Family Blessed Beginnings Birthing Center, creating the ultimate patient experience is second only to our focus on safety. A beautiful blend of luxurious surroundings, our facility is home to some of Highland County’s most innovative safety measures, like ultramodern wireless fetal monitors. Studies show that moms who walk during labor shorten their delivery time, which can be difficult if they are anchored to a bedside monitor. Our next generation wireless monitors provide a greater level of comfort and allow our OB staff to closely monitor both mother and baby, while giving mom the freedom to roam.
We also know that our hospital surroundings play a big part in the experience of our patients and their families. Certain textures, amenities and enhancements were chosen specifically to enrich the time that our mothers, babies and families will spend in our hospital. Some of our more popular features include:
  • Wireless fetal monitors allowing moms to roam freely
  • Beds featuring cozy gel mattresses that separate for ease during delivery
  • In-room flat screen TVs
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi

Community Focused & Spiritually Driven

Florida Hospital’s guiding mission is to “extend the healing ministry of Christ.” This means we nurture people – our staff members, the Heartland community and those who trust us for care and healing. Through a generous donation from the Bill and Lisa Jarrett Family, Blessed Beginnings combines state-of-the-art technology with expert care in peaceful, relaxing surroundings. We believe every birth is a gift from God and want to ensure it is handled with the utmost care. 

By Your Side Before, During and After Delivery

Personal Birth Coordinator
Here, we create tailor-made experiences for each mother’s individual needs. Each custom plan is developed by our personal birth coordinator, who works directly with expectant moms to determine possible labor augmentation options, if and when pain medication should be used, who should be in the room, and more. And though unexpected circumstances can arise during the delivery process, establishing a plan ahead of time helps to create a smoother experience for our patients and caregivers.
Pediatric Hospitalist
Our pediatric hospitalist is an experienced doctor, specially trained in the care of newborns, infants and children. All families seeking pediatric care due to illness or injury have access to our pediatric hospitalist, who works with other specialists and family’s pediatrician for in-patient treatment and follow up care. Florida Hospital happens to be the only facility in the Heartland offering this important service to families.
