Patient Care

Breakthroughs for Life

As an academic health science center, UNMC offers patients world-class health care, backed by the latest research innovations and practiced by faculty training the next generation of health providers.

With our hospital partner, The Nebraska Medical Center, UNMC provides services in over 50 specialties and subspecialties, including cancer, neurosciences, heart disease and others.

In addition to their research and education responsibilities, our medical faculty practice through two clinical groups. UNMC Physicians comprises more than 500 physicians in 50 specialties and sub-specialties, and the 125-practitioner Children's Specialty Physicians combines the academic resources of UNMC and the clinical resources of Children’s Hospital and Medical Center. Most recently, more than 150 UNMC faculty-practitioners were recognized as 2009-10 Best Doctors in America, and 16 of our doctors were voted by peers as 2009-10 “America’s Top Doctors.” Our experts also provide dental care and services in physical and developmental disabilities.

Through this unique combination of academic, scientific, and health care experience, we transform the discoveries of the laboratory and theory of the classroom into breakthroughs for your health.
