The University of Nebraska-Lincoln plans to privatize its health center operations, a plan being closely watched by university staff, faculty and students.
Student body president Eric Kamler says he's rarely used the University Health Center, but he likes to know it's there if he needs it. He says the biggest concern about the plan among students is maintaining the University Health Center's quality of care and services.
UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman announced plans earlier this month to hire a private health care provider to build and operate a new health center.
To ensure participation from various stakeholders, the university has created an advisory board that will review the bids and make a recommendation to Perlman.
