CHI Health is a non-profit, faith-based health organization with headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska. CHI Health is made up of 15 acute care hospitals, six of which are located in the Omaha metro area.

History[edit]

Alegent Health was created in 1996, resulting from a long-standing partnership between the Lutheran Immanuel Medical Center and the Catholic 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.

In 2012, Alegent acquired Creighton University Medical Center and was renamed Alegent Creighton Health. Also in 2012, Immanuel left the Alegent partnership to focus on its senior programs and Alegent became solely sponsored by Catholic Health Initiatives.[1] In 2014, Alegent Creighton Health merged with CHI Nebraska and was renamed CHI Health.[2]
