Over the next year, UNMC will assess the current operations and care delivery of the center, and will collaborate with UHC staff, UNL students and other stakeholders in developing a long-term business plan for the UHC.
"I was pleased when Chancellor Perlman reached out to us to discuss this opportunity," UNMC Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D., said. "We are taking on this responsibility because we have expertise in the areas of health care management and delivery, which have grown increasingly complex. We are excited about ensuring that this clinic best meets the health needs of UNL students."
Said UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman: "This partnership will help UNL continue to advance quality health care for our students. I appreciate the willingness of our colleagues at UNMC to assist us in assuring a high level of health care for our student body."
In the near term, all clinical staff will remain UNL employees. UNMC will work to build a referral network with specialty partners in the Lincoln and Omaha areas, to ensure the highest quality and best access and follow-up to health care services for students.
