Our Health System

Serving Our Community for 125 Years

Founded over 125 years ago by four sisters from St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration, CHI Health St. Elizabeth has grown into a medical center with 264 all-private, inpatient rooms. Centrally located, St. Elizabeth is one of Lincoln’s largest employers, handling in excess of 34,000 emergency room visits and more than 10,000 surgical procedures annually.

We are dedicated to providing quality, compassionate care to patients and family members while adhering to the core values of reverence, integrity, compassion and excellence. We combine state-of-the-art technology with personalized care to create a welcoming, healing environment. Our purpose goes beyond helping people overcome illness or injury, but rather working to build healthier communities. We partner with local agencies and organizations to strengthen the health care programs offered in the community — giving more people access to care.

St. Elizabeth is part of Catholic Health Initiatives, a national nonprofit health organization with headquarters in Englewood, Colo. It is one of the nation’s largest Catholic health care systems, providing more than $600 million in charity care and community benefit annually.
