Current Projects


St. Elizabeth is creating a specialized women’s health center. This calming and comfortable, earth toned setting will be a one-stop easily accessible care destination for cancer diagnosis and treatment of breast and lung cancer. 

It will be home to our current, High-Risk Breast Care Clinic, which is dedicated to early detection and identification. The multidisciplinary breast care center has a team of professionals that meet together, go over a patient's history, test results, etc. and then meet with the patient to provide a coordinated plan of care. 

The Health Center will offer imaging, mammograms and ultrasound - including ultrasound using the GE Invenia ABUS 2.0-FDA-approved breast ultrasound ultrasound technology for breast cancer detection in women with dense breast tissue. 

Would you like to share in the excitement and support this beautiful center?

Special Outreach

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.
