The University of Nebraska Medical Center and Nebraska Medicine are embarking on a transformational project that aims to improve the capacity to address the health care needs of Nebraska and the readiness of the nation’s civilian and military health system to partner to respond to a catastrophic disaster such as another pandemic, an accident, or an overt attack.
Phase one of Project NExT, referred to as Project Health: Building the Healthiest Nebraska, provides needed campus enhancement to UNMC’s research, education, clinical, and community service missions at the main campus in Omaha.
