A New Era in Health Care
CHI Health and Creighton University are opening the doors to a new academic health center with two campuses. Closest to Creighton, at 24th and Cuming streets, will be the University Campus of CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center, an outpatient community health and diagnostic center with the area’s only freestanding emergency department (see photo). A few miles away, in south-central Omaha, will be the Bergan Mercy Campus, including a multistory clinic, Level 1 trauma center, inpatient facility, offices, classrooms and more.
“We are creating something that will evolve beyond what we can imagine today,” says Robert “Bo” Dunlay, MD’81, dean of Creighton’s 124-year-old School of Medicine. “We are now poised to carry our mission into the future much more effectively than we would have been able to before our partnership with CHI Health.”
These changes are happening right alongside the myriad changes in the health care world. This is the world for which Creighton University is preparing health professions students and residents–like Anna Worley, BS’10, MD’14 (shown with patient).
