We are Nebraska Heart, sometimes referred to by our initials, “NHI,” Nebraska Heart Institute and “NHH,” Nebraska Heart Hospital (our former name). NHI originated with the desire of the founding physicians to develop both their own range of services as well as the ability to provide these services to communities throughout the region.
This vision holds true today, as NHI delivers leading-edge services to Nebraska and northern Kansas. Our network of offices and affiliated hospital-based clinics enables patients to receive timely care close to home. In addition, Nebraska Heart, located in southeast Lincoln, has dramatically reshaped the way in which patients receive care.
For over 15 years, a uniquely close and collaborative relationship has long existed between CHI Health Nebraska Heart and Nebraska Heart Institute. With Nebraska Heart Institute as part of the CHI Health family, these expert cardiology and vascular teams will work as one to bring the most advanced and comprehensive cardiovascular care to Nebraska, western Iowa and northern Kansas.
Nebraska Heart continues to have the largest staff of experienced professionals in the area. Alongside the physicians is a dedicated team of advanced practice clinicians, nurses, technologists and staff; all committed to providing quality care and education to meet each patient’s needs during diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
Physicians practice at the Medical Office Building on the campus of CHI Health Nebraska Heart and CHI Health St. Elizabeth, Lincoln; Mary Lanning Hospital, Hastings; CHI Health St. Francis, Grand Island; North Platte; Columbus, Nebraska; CHI Health Good Samaritan, Keanery and more than 40 hospital-based clinics throughout Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas.
Nebraska Heart’s team-based approach assures that proper and informed decisions are made from diagnosis through treatment and rehabilitation.
