Posted: Updated:

A name change for Tucson Heart hospital. It's now called Carondelet Heart and Vascular Institute.

The renaming is an effort make the community connect the heart hospital to the carondelet network, of which it is a part.

The word institute is meant to show the facility goes beyond just treating the sick.


Her rare anemic condition has made her well known around Tucson.

Now Lizzie Bell is giving back again to UMC, the hospital that has taken care of her.  Lizzie Bell and her loot, as she calls it, dropped off numerous toys to the pediatric wing of the hospital.

Lizzie will be accepting toy donations at the SAHBA Home and Garden Show this weekend inside the convention center.
