Children's Hospital & Medical Center is the only full-service, pediatric health care center in Nebraska, providing expertise in more than 50 pediatric specialty services to children across a five-state region and beyond. Children's is home to Nebraska's only Level IV regional NICU and the state's only Level II Pediatric Trauma Center. As a regional heart center, it also offers expertise in pediatric heart transplantation. Children's is focused on extraordinary clinical care, education, basic science and translational research and advocacy and is embarking on transformational programmatic and physical growth. Opening in 2021, the new Hubbard Center for Children will be home to an additional 100 patient beds, an expanded NICU, a dedicated Cardiac Care Unit, a new Cancer & Blood Disorders Unit, expanded surgical space, an expanded Radiology and Emergency Department and more. The Child Health Research Institute was established in 2017 and aims to assist investigators with start-up funding and infrastructure for clinical, basic science or translational research. Children's is recognized as a 2019-20 Best Children's Hospital by U.S. News & World Report in five pediatric specialties: Cardiology and Heart Surgery, Pulmonology, Gastroenterology & GI Surgery, Orthopedics and Diabetes & Endocrine Disorders.
The Department of Pediatrics is the UNMC College of Medicine's second largest department. Faculty and staff are based in 20 divisions, generally organized along subspecialty lines. There are currently 150 faculty members and 72 UNMC staff within the department. In addition, nine faculty members are geographically based at UNMC's Munroe Meyers Institute (MMI), Nebraska's federally designated University Center of Excellence for Developmental Disabilities Education, Research and Service (UCEDD) and hold their primary Academic appointments in the Department of Pediatrics. One faculty member each in the Dean's and Chancellor's office also base their academic appointments in the Department of Pediatrics. Most of the Department faculty carry out their clinical activities at Children's with activities in select clinical areas occurring at The Nebraska Medical Center, which is operated by UNMC's primary adult academic partner, Nebraska Medicine.
The Department of Neurological Sciences at the University of Nebraska College of Medicine comprises clinicians, scientists and educators who have the vision, ability and dedication to advance neural health across a lifespan. The DONS provides innovative care to patients with the most severe and complex disorders. Its funded research includes many clinical trials and strong investigator-initiated research programs and laboratories. The DONS also serves as the headquarters of the Great Plains IDeA Clinical and Translational Research Network, which spans four states and nine universities, and is aimed at developing new medical research and training new scholars for the public good.
