When a baby is born at Lexington Regional Health Center, families provide the Medical Records staff with information, which is submitted electronically to the State of Nebraska Department of Vital Statistics
During your delivery stay, you will be required to fill out a “Mother’s Worksheet” which provides our department with the pertinent information regarding your baby’s birth certificate. To expedite the birth certificate process during your stay, please mail or fax the form to our Medical Records department ahead of time. You may also bring the form to the Medical Records department before or during your delivery stay.
