About Our Organization

FHSI is a non-profit healthcare organization that serves Beatrice, Tecumseh and all of Southeast Nebraska.  We offer reproductive health services to local residents.  Reproductive health services are provided on an income based sliding fee scale and we also accept most insurances and Every Woman Matters. Services include preventative health exams, cervical cancer screening (PAP test), breast cancer screening, STD testing and treatment, all contraceptive method provision including emergency contraception, pregnancy testing, colposcopy procedures and reproductive health education.  Family planning promotes the well-being of families and responsible behavior, prevents unintended pregnancies through education and contraceptive services, and allows for planning and timing of pregnancies.  Go to our website at LoveSafely.com or contact us by phone at 402-335-2988 for an appointment



Current Project: Cardiochek machine and operational support



FHSI is raising money this year to purchase a Cardiocheck machine for our satellite clinics that serve Beatrice. This machine tests cholesterol and blood glucose with a simple finger stick blood sample.  Screening blood pressure, cholesterol levels and blood sugar levels are important aspects of a thorough preventative health exam.  Early detection of hypertension (high blood pressure), hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol), and diabetes (high blood sugar) is important for preventing adverse outcomes such heart disease, heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, blindness and many other complications of these conditions. Heart disease alone is the number one cause of death in the U.S.  At FHSI we don't just focus on family planning services, but want to provide an important screening service for our clients to encourage good health and prevent disease. 

We would use any additional money raised this year for operational support of our outreach program.  We desire to incease our outreach efforts to reach new clientele in Gage county. We serve adolescents and adults up to age 64, but reaching the different age groups regarding our services can be a challenge. We have found marketing methods to have changed significantly with the advent of social media. Youth don't read a newspaper, listen to the radio or watch TV like older clientele.  We are developing more social media marketing to reach the adolescents and young adults in the area. 

Please consider helping our organization with our fundraising projects for the year.  Thank you for supporting our mission to "assist residents of Southeast Nebraska in obtaining and maintaining a healthy lifestyle for themselves and their families"!
