Nebraska Hematology-Oncology, P.C. is a comprehensive medical facility dedicated to the health and well being of patients with cancer and blood disorders. This is achieved through advanced cancer therapy and supportive measures. For our patients we pursue understanding, optimal medical therapy and outcome for their illness. To achieve these goals, we hope for and accept extended cooperation with patients, their families, their friends, and the medical staff, including the family physician. There have been many great strides made in the struggle to fight cancer. Information is a vital part of treatment. Our physicians, our staff, and family members work with the patient as partners to pursue a complete understanding of their disease and the treatment options available.
At Nebraska Hematology-Oncology, our philosophy begins and ends with the belief that to best care for a patient we must first care about the person. We believe the kindness one shows from day to day is not learned but is an inherent quality that we insist is easily visible and unselfishly given to each person that comes to our facility. When fears run high, reassurance and a genuine interest in the person is vital to helping one feel at ease.
Our staff stresses thoroughness, kindness, and compassion in a setting of up-to-date medical knowledge and extensive experience. We are actively involved in cancer research making new therapies available.
Our nursing group is passionate about their profession and is trained in oncology. Many hold certifications through the Oncology Nursing Society and all are required to complete a chemotherapy and biotherapy course and required re-certification. The nursing staff is here to assist you with education, scheduling ancillary testing, administering your treatment and ensuring that all of your questions have been answered to your satisfaction. Our recent commitment to becoming the first, and currently, the only Oncology Practice in the state of Nebraska to be certified by the American Society of Clinical Oncology, Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) was another example of our dedication to continue to pursue “best practices” which provide for greater safety for our patients as well as adherence to accepted clinical treatment guidelines. To become certified, practices meet core standards in all areas of treatment, including: treatment planning, staff training and education, chemotherapy orders and drug preparation, patient consent and education, safe chemotherapy administration and monitoring and assessment of patient well-being.
The front desk team is a delightful group of individuals who will get to know you and greet you by name and serve as an excellent advocate to help facilitate your needs. They will triage your phone calls, scheduling needs and make certain we have answered all of your questions. They consistently receive praise from our patients about their caring and welcoming approach.
Our billing office staff is comprised of experienced, dedicated staff that goes the extra mile to assist our patients with the complexities of insurance authorization, billing and claim resolution. We have dedicated patient advocates to assist in exploring foundation and drug assistance opportunities. They are trained specifically in oncology billing procedures and attend continuing education opportunities to stay apprised of the latest coding and billing guidelines.
The laboratory personnel are a very skilled team of individuals who take great care in drawing your blood and reporting accurate results. They strive for excellence and this is acknowledged by our continued approval by CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) certification. The objective of the CLIA program is to ensure quality laboratory testing. Clinical laboratories must be properly certified to receive government and private insurance payments.
