We assure you that our patients will receive the very best in medical care.
Personalized Care for Our Patients and Their Families
With a single call from you or a referring physician, International Healthcare Services will assign a patient-care coordinator to organize all aspects of your visit to our facility.
We provide a level of service beyond expectations
Comprehensive and culturally sensitive services for our International and US patients include all aspects of patients’ and their families’ medical and personal comfort. With the search for new and innovative treatments, our primary focus is the well being of patients.
Our healthcare providers and all of our employees put our patients and their families first — treating them with warmth and compassion — just as we would want our own family members treated. We provide inpatient and outpatient diagnosis and treatment of patients with cancer and related diseases in a comforting, friendly, state-of-the-art environment.
Early detection of disease is a major step toward a successful outcome. It is a sad fact that often when an international patient arrives for treatment in the US, the disease has often reached an advanced stage and limited treatment options may be available. We work closely with referring physicians to determine the most appropriate treatment plan and to prevent potentially dangerous time delays.
Just one call to our International Healthcare Services department and we will assist you in the whole process of transferring a patient to UNMC. We will help with the transfer of patient records, keeping the referring physician updated on their patient’s progress, visa process, translations, local transportation, accommodations, special dietary requirements, sight-seeing, shopping and anything else that a patient may require while undergoing treatment at our Center.
Once you have decided to visit the University of Nebraska Medical Center/Nebraska Medicine, our International Healthcare Services staff will assist you in all travel and lodging arrangements to make your visit here as seamless as possible. We know that traveling away from home can be very stressful. It is our goal to provide you and your family with the best service available. Our staff and volunteers will also assist you in arranging for medical appointments, sightseeing, entertainment and shopping in the Omaha area to help make your journey more enjoyable.
