(Omaha, NE)  --  An Omaha area hospital is being praised for its heart pumps.  The University of Nebraska Medical Center and Nebraska Medicine joined nearly 70 other institutions in taking part in a three-year heart pump study.  Hospital officials say that new pumps are nearly as good for patients as getting a heart transplant.  Current heart pump patients have an 80-percent survival rate after two years.
