Pope Paul VI Institute

While on vacation to see family in Nebraska, my wife and myself went to visit the Pope Paul VI Institute. If you have never heard of it, it is a place of great encouragement for the hope of life, medical ad and family. You can read the details on their website for what they do, I just wanted to give a “shout out” for what we know about it and it’s effect on our family.
We had heard of the institute in name only in different Catholic circles, but our first experience with the immense goodness
in which it serves, came via Dr Patrick Yeung( https://faculty.duke.edu/faculty/info?pid=28810#pubs) whom studied under Dr. Hilgers.
Dr Yeung helped us through the loss of our “Francis/Frances” and helped in the moral decision making process based on Catholic Church teachings, a process that most doctors wouldn’t think about or probably even worry about.
This is the kind of doctors we need more of, but unfortunately, these are the kinds of doctors that the Obama administration is trying to silence.

We were blessed with an impromptu tour of the Institute by Dr. Hilgers personal assistant Vicky ( I hope I got her name right).
While the Institute is more of a business/doctors office, Vicky made the tour very interesting and showed us around like we were family. Everyone there was extremely friendly. You could tell that these people were there for a good reason.
We were told that several people that worked at the Institute had an intriguing (and sometimes heartrending) stories about how they came to be there.

All in all, the trip was great and well worth the time to stop in and see what it was all about.
They also have lots of brochures and books to help evangelize the importance of respecting life and morally acceptable medical practices. You can give them to your friends as well as your doctor.

Pope Paul VI Institute is always in need of financial help, so if you are looking for a good place to send your tithe, please go
to their web site and be assured it is going somewhere that is trying to help the world see what good medicine looks like.
