OneThousandOne represents the amount of time, verbally, that it takes to count to one second. In this one second of time, a great thing happened at Nebraska Medicine. In fact, several great things probably happened. A patient was cured, a researcher found the missing link, a nurse treated an injury, a doctor comforted a family or maybe a child just smiled.

    There’s no place like home. For 90-year-old Paul Hodgson, MD, who nearly lost his independence, that old saying rings more true today than ever before.
  • Life as Usual
    When Toni Clarke found out she had breast cancer, she braced herself for a long, difficult journey. She stressed about how she would manage her two young girls’ busy schedules, how she would drive into Omaha for appointments and day-long chemotherapy treatments, and how she would keep up with work and family.
  • Going the Distance
    The truly amazing measure of how far Haysam Akkad, MD, has come since his birth in Aleppo, Syria, isn’t the distance he has traveled. It’s what he has achieved along the way.
  • Spreading the Benefits
