Current Projects


Thank a Caregiver

Has your life been touched by a special doctor or caregiver? Too often we let the opportunity to say “Thank You” slip away in the rush of our daily routines. If you have encountered someone who made your experience special - a doctor, nurse, volunteer, or other staff member, thank a caregiver with a gift to the St. Elizabeth/Nebraska Heart Foundation. Your doctor/caregiver will receive a special note from you honoring the care they provided. Honor those who make a difference! 

Hearts of Hope

During a heart attack or critical illness, every second counts. That’s why four state-of-the-art catheterization labs are within 50 feet of the ambulance entrance door. At Nebraska Heart, the door to balloon time is just 22 minutes--compared to the American Heart Association standard of 90 minutes. Donate to Hearts of Hope and help us raise funds for a new canopy entrance to protect the ambulances with heart attack patients arriving at Nebraska Heart.
