We will honor EPS Medical Director Dr. Nick Steinauer with the 2021 Spirit of EPS Award. We are delighted to show Dr. Steinauer our gratitude for the many ways he has graciously gone above the call of duty by volunteering for nine years, which includes serving as our medical director for the past five years.
At Omaha OB-GYN Associates, P.C. we are committed to giving back to the community. Many of our practitioners (and their families) donate time and resources to a number of causes. Several of our doctors, nurses, and administration staff participate in fundraising walks and races, logging hundreds of miles and wearing out countless running shoes.
You can find us pounding the pavement at these, and other, races:
- Market to Market
- March of Dimes
- Race for the Cure
- Girls on the Run
- Hot Chocolate Race
- Juvenile Diabetes
We also support these programs/organizations:
- Women's Center for Advancement (visit site)
- Girls, Inc. (visit site)
- Hope Medical Outreach (visit site)
- Friends of Naivasha Women’s Center (visit site)
- Global Medical Brigades, SLU Chapter (visit site)

Omaha OB-GYN's office administrator Ellen Houston, along with Dr. Collins, Dr. Schulte, and former nurse practitioner Cindy Berkland have all visited Kenya, Africa to contribute their time and talents to the Naivasha Women's Health Care Center (NWHCC). The NWHCC was designed to be an inexpensive and effective way of catering to the needs of the women who do not have access to private medical care. The focus of the new facility is to allow women to undergo labor, deliver their babies, and recover from the birthing experience in a semi-private suite designed to care for their obstetrical needs in one room. This assures safety by less cross-contamination and allows for privacy and family support for the mother.
Dr. Steinauer and his son Nickolas joined a mission trip to Los Olingos, Honduras, as part of Global Medical Brigades, SLU Chapter. The group brought along medication and physicians, and set up a clinic, seeing nearly 800 patients.
Our families get involved too. At the Kamie K. Preston Hereditary Cancer Foundation’s Golf Outing Fundraiser, Ellen Houston’s husband Tom and son Mark, as well as Dr. Leishman-Barb’s husband Thomas and Dr. Collins’ husband Brian were members of the Omaha OB-GYN team.
