Interconnected health care organizations in Omaha will now share the same name. The Nebraska Medical Center, Bellevue Medical Center and University of Nebraska Medical Center Physicians will now be known as “Nebraska Medicine”.
UNMC Chancellor Dr. Jeffery Gold says,“This is an opportunity for us to tell ourselves within the organization and more importantly the local, national and global community, that we’re one team focused on extraordinary quality health care, breakthrough discoveries and educating the health professions workforce of the future.”
Nebraska Medicine and the University of Nebraska Medical Center remain partners. Nebraska Medicine is the clinical teaching partner for UNMC. The two will share a new symbol, a shield and the letter “N” in two shades of red.
