We had a great presentation from Kevin Nokles, President of Creighton University Medical Center at Bergan Mercy, which is part of CHI Health. The successful integration of the Creighton University Medical Center into CHI Health has been a massive project and will continue to have a tremendous impact on our community for years to come.
 
CHI Health is a vitally important organization in our state and in our city. CHI has 12,500 employees at 14 hospitals and 136 clinic locations throughout Nebraska and Southwest Iowa, and cares for more than 1 million patients per year. The organization has roots in our community going back more than 140 years. The Creighton University School of Medicine graduates 152 medical students per year, many of whom stay and practice right here in Omaha and the school sponsors 18 residencies and fellowships in a wide range of medical fields. It would be difficult to overstate the importance of these organizations to our community.
 
Kevin laid out in detail the way in which the organizations have been successfully integrated, the move away from St Joseph’s Hospital to Bergan Mercy, the establishment of a new ambulatory campus at 2412 Cuming Street, and the continuation and expansion of the critically important trauma services offered by these organizations.
 
Good News:
Roger Holthaus attended his 60th High School Reunion. Coincidentally, the Hastings Rotary Club meets at the Mary Lanning Hospital in the area where his tonsils were removed years ago.  It's a small world.
 
Sean Olson’s daughter is on the Volleyball team at Millard South, which is having great success so far this season. They have already beaten the top-ranked team in Class B (Skutt) and the top-ranked team in Class A (Millard West). Congratulations.
 
We are glad to hear that John Mock’s wife Trudy is doing much better. Thanks John, and please give our best wishes to Trudy for continued recovery.
 
Next week:
Chief Human Capital Officer Frank Venuto will tell us about the United States Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program, and their work with Nebraska Medicine. This promises to be another great presentation. A terrific opportunity to invite a guest or prospective member to our meeting.
 
If it’s Wednesday, be sure to be at Rotary.
See you next week!

Omaha Remembers: Tribute of Flags
 

As one of our Club Service Projects, our club both helps plant the flags and remove the flags that each year has commemorated the people who perished in the 9/11 bombings at Memorial Park on Dodge Street.

We can use your help to take down flags on Sunday, September 17th at 4:00pm. SIGN UP HERE

If you are a new member, this counts as a Community Service Project. It is also worth attendance credit.

If you have a "Rotarian at Work" shirt or a Omaha Rotary logo shirt, please wear it.
