Community Infectious Disease

The Community Infectious Disease service is dedicated to providing ID services to facilities outside of the main campus at Nebraska Medical Center (NMC). The service was created in December 2018 and provided new opportunities for the division to expand the diversity and continuity of patient care it provides. Dr Starlin has been service line director since the inception of the service and has multiple years of experience practicing in the community setting. 

Currently the service provides ID coverage and consultative services at Bellevue Medical Center (BMC) and Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital (MRH) in Omaha. Coverage at BMC allows ID to work collaboratively with primary care and other specialists in a community hospital setting. Many of the complex patients discharged from NMC continue their medical care at MRH. The Community ID service is thus able to follow and provide continuity of care for these patients. There are plans to expand ID coverage outside of these locations in the near future and take advantage of telemedicine technology in the state and region.
