The largest health care network covering Nebraska and southwest Iowa has a new name. Alegent Creighton Health and the other Catholic Health Initiatives facilities are now CHI Health.
“Our new name is a signal that we are moving forward and positioned incredibly well, not only to be able to improve the health of the communities we serve, but to change how health care is delivered,” said Cliff Robertson, M.D., chief executive officer for CHI Health. “Patients can expect the expert care that they’ve always received with the same compassion right in their own community.”
CHI Health is made up of 15 acute-care hospitals, an academic medical center, Level I trauma center, two freestanding inpatient psychiatric facilities, a Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities certified rehabilitation center, an American College of Surgeons verified burn center and two networks of multi-specialty clinics with nearly 200 locations in Nebraska, southwest Iowa and northern Kansas.
The metro hospitals will now be known as CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center, CHI Health Bergan Mercy, CHI Health Immanuel, CHI Health Lakeside, CHI Health Midlands and CHI Health Mercy Council Bluffs.
