Alegent Creighton Health is a non-profit, faith based health organization with headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska.

Hospitals[edit]

Alegent Creighton Health is made up of ten acute care hospitals, six of which are located in the Omaha metro area. Bergan Mercy Medical Center, Creighton University Medical Center, Immanuel Medical Center, Lakeside Hospital, Midlands Hospital and Mercy Hospital in neighboring Council Bluffs, Iowa. Alegent Creighton Health has more than 100 sites of service, with over 1,300 physicians on its medical staff and roughly 9,000 employees.

History[edit]

Alegent Creighton Health is sponsored by Catholic Health Initiatives. It was created in 1996, resulting from a long-standing partnership between Immanuel Medical Center and Bergan Mercy Medical Center under the Community Health Vision. Both boards unanimously approved the union. The campuses joined together along with Mercy Hospital in Council Bluffs, Iowa and two regional health partners, Corning and Schuyler, as one health care system while maintaining their own identities and religious affiliations. In 1997, Midlands Hospital joined Alegent Health.
