Creighton president says partnership with Alegent will expand opportunities
One agreement expands Alegent’s teaching affiliation with Creighton’s health sciences programs. Creighton president Father Timothy Lannon says the move is good for medical students, and will better address community needs.
Alegent’s Bergan Mercy Medical Center and Immanuel Hospital provide residency slots for Creighton’s medical students.
Alegent Health will also assume ownership of Creighton University Medical Center and Creighton Medical Associates clinics. Those will become Alegent facilities. President and CEO Rick Hachten says no layoffs are anticipated at this time.
