When his world came crashing down around him in the fall of 2021, Dr. Keith Vrbicky of Norfolk went from seemingly perfect health to a shocking diagnosis of acute congestive heart failure.

Norfolk physician (Dr. Keith W. Vrbicky) back to practicing medicine after receiving heart transplant.  Article in Norfolk Daily News.

A devout Catholic who attends Mass nearly every morning, Vrbicky feels he was divinely spared for a purpose — to advocate for organ donation, the quality of UNMC’s care, the power of prayer and the primacy of family.

“I really feel I witnessed a miracle,” the 67 year-old said. “I not only witnessed it, I am the miracle. I wake up thinking about how grateful I am for the gift I’ve been given of a new lease on life. I feel called to share what I’ve gone through. I’m being encouraged by patients and friends to tell this story. It played out over a short period of time, but a lot happened in that short time.”
