Listen to Your Heart


Hear Kathy's Story

In May 2011, Kathy Burgett, a registered nurse at Saint Elizabeth, experienced a heart attack while at work. Thanks to the care of her coworkers and the skilled cardiovascular team, Kathy fully recovered. Today, she wants women to make sure they are aware of the heart attack warning signs.

Prior to her heart attack, Kathy thought she was living a healthy lifestyle. Her heart attack was a wake up call that she needed to eat healthier, exercise more and take better care of her heart. Kathy feels lucky that God gave her a second chance to make lifestyle changes, so she can continue to do what she enjoys most – taking care of people.
