Newest Nebraska Medicine Outpatient Clinic to Serve North Omaha
Nebraska Medicine (www.nebraskamed.com) continues to expand its primary care offerings in the Omaha area, with the newest one scheduled to open in North Omaha before the end of the year. The clinic will be located just east of the intersection of 50th & Ames Ave. on the northern edge of the campus of the Omaha Home for Boys.
Nebraska Medicine currently operates a clinic in the area, at 5050 Ames Ave., which will close when the new building opens across the street. Nebraska Medicine – Fontenelle is on the north side of Ames Ave. adjacent to Walmart.
“We’re proud to not only continue to serve patients in North Omaha, we’re excited to expand our offerings,” said Dan DeBehnke, MD, MBA, president and CEO of Nebraska Medicine. “Our new clinic model has been very well received in other areas of the metro, and we want North Omaha residents to continue to have access to the same high level of care we provide everywhere else. And to be able to partner with the Omaha Home for Boys on this effort was a win-win.”
When the clinic opens, it will be the fourth new primary care clinic Nebraska Medicine has opened in the last two years. All four are architecturally identical, designed to provide an extraordinary experience for patients. The three other clinics are: Nebraska Medicine – Brentwood Village, Nebraska Medicine – Chalco and Nebraska Medicine – Elkhorn (opening in April 2018).
“This clinic will be a wonderful resource for this community, our youth and our staff,” said Jeff DeWispelare, president and CEO of the Omaha Home for Boys. “Both Nebraska Medicine and the Omaha Home for Boys have deep roots and a longstanding history of service to this community, so this was obviously a perfect fit.”
Nebraska Medicine has a total of 16 outpatient clinics located in Omaha and other communities in Nebraska.
