Department Moves

Dear faculty, house staff, staff, colleagues and friends of Creighton Psychiatry,

We have long outgrown that facility and have been in need of additional space to allow our Faculty to more effectively pursue their clinical and academic missions.

With our relationship with CHI Health, we now have that opportunity to further develop and grow.

This month, our Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Faculty and Fellows have moved our child and adolescent outpatient clinic to a new location: Medical Building Three on the Immanuel Medical Center Campus. This newly renovated space provides additional room for our Faculty and Fellows and allows closer collaboration with therapists and other members of the care team. The proximity to the child inpatient unit, child partial hospital care unit, and child residential treatment unit will also allow greater collaboration across the care continuum for the patients we serve. Our Faculty and Fellows are very pleased with the new facilities. We want to offer a special shout out to Susan Stites and Tonya Meusch from the CHI Behavioral Service Line for their assistance in facilitating the move.

Sometime later this year, our Adult Psychiatry Faculty and Resident clinic will be moving to space at Lasting Hope Recovery Center, a campus of the Creighton University Medical Center. This too will put our adult outpatient services on the same campus as our primary adult inpatient facility. Our clinical trials research programs will move with the adult outpatient faculty and resident clinic.

Please note as well, that in July 2017, our Department academic offices moved into new space on the Creighton University Medical Center–Bergan Mercy Campus. This is the location now for all teaching for house staff, clinical teaching for medical students (pre-clinical teaching remains on the Creighton University main campus) and most of the administrative activities of the Department.

Our Department is very appreciative of the new opportunities that our relationship with CHI Health–and these new clinical and academic spaces–have brought to us to more effectively fulfill our Department commitment.

All the best,

Tom
