Lights of Love
Come see a beautiful sight that will warm your heart this holiday season - Christmas trees overflowing with silver-star ornaments given in honor or in memory of someone special. A cherished tradition for over 20 years, the Lights of Love trees are a visual reminder of love felt throughout the year. When you donate to Lights of Love this year, your gift will help invest in our children.
St. Elizabeth is developing a new model to care for children. It will be an improved way to keep young patients closer to families, keep them in our community - and still deliver good quality pediatric care. A hospital and emergency care unit - specialized separate area - will be located adjacent to the Emergency Department and will be the Pediatric Place at St. Elizabeth - ER and Hospital - just for kids. An inviting and child-like atmosphere will welcome children and their families. Learn more about this important project.

Hearts of Hope
A personalized red-heart ornament with the name of your loved one, colleague or friend will be placed on the trees for all to see and enjoy. Donate now to help support a new canopy that will protect the ambulances arriving with heart attack patients at Nebraska Heart.
Canopy Ambulance Entrance
Imagine the most frightening moment of your life happening at the worst possible time--in the middle of a snow storm. During a heart attack or critical illness, every second counts. At CHI Health Nebraska Heart, we take time seriously. That’s why four state-of-the-art catheterization labs are within 50 feet of the ambulance entrance door. In this amazing facility, the door to balloon time is just 22 minutes--compared to the American Heart Association standard of 90 minutes.
We are asking for your support to help create a specialized canopy ambulance entrance area to shield our staff and patients from the harsh Nebraska weather. The newly designed covered entrance will be created to handle two emergency vehicles transporting our most critical heart patients protecting them for these outside elements. You can give in honor or remembrance of a loved one, friend or colleague to Nebraska Heart Foundation – Hearts of Hope and a personalized red heart ornament will be placed on Christmas trees at Nebraska Heart. Learn more and simply donate online.
This is the current ambulance area that will be remodeled with a new canopy entrance.
Your estate plan is more powerful than you may realize. Not only can you secure your family’s future with quality planning, but you can change our patients’ lives as well. Many of our supporters have chosen to participate in various planned giving options. Estate gifts are given in many ways based on your family’s values and goals. One major benefit of planned giving may be significant tax advantages, depending upon your situation. As a service to our friends and donors, St. Elizabeth Foundation offers confidential and comprehensive estate planning services at no charge and with no obligation. Planning clients are not asked or expected to make gifts, unless they choose to. Please contact Donna Hammack at 402-219-7074 for additional information.
