The new University of Nebraska-Lincoln Health Center and University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing-Lincoln Division building, located at 550 N. 19th St., opens July 16.
The three-level, 107,000-square-foot facility houses the new state-of-the-art health center on the first and second floors. It features expanded health care services – medical, dental and physical therapy – and the consolidation of counseling and other psychological services in one location.
Convenient Pharmacy Location
The pharmacy is on the first level of the building directly inside the west entrance. Its easy access ensures patients can be in and out in no time.
Physical Therapy Pool and Gym
The new physical therapy space features a warm-water SwimEx therapy pool to help patients increase their range of motion and strength. The adjoining gymnasium includes an expanded capacity for personal treatment equipment and a turf strip for simulated running.
Students can relax with guided meditation and relaxation resources in this room, located on the first level inside the Health Promotion and Outreach area. Warm colors and a natural environment with foliage welcome visitors to this quiet oasis.
Specializing in easy and healthy cooking for college students, the wellness kitchen offers small-group nutrition education opportunities.
Convenient Check-in Desk
The main check-in desk for most medical and mental health services is centrally located and easy to find. It was designed with efficiency and patient privacy in mind.
Consolidated Counseling and Psychological Services
The CAPS team is now located in one central location on the second floor of the new building, allowing for easier access and staff collaboration. CAPS offers some free individual therapy visits to help students focus on their mental health and overall well-being.
Medical Clinic Pod Design
The new clinic area groups exam rooms into three pods with staff access from centralized collaborative spaces. Not only does this allow for more frequent interactions among medical clinic staff, but also enhances patient privacy with less foot traffic. The pods are designed in a flexible layout and size to allow for easy transition of space if future needs change.
Spacious Dental Clinic
More than doubling the number of exam rooms, the new dental space allows the team to care for more patients than ever before.
