WELCOME TO NHO
Thank you for visiting, we’re so glad you’re here. Whether you’re here supporting a loved one or are the loved one, there are many resources that you will find useful on this site to assist you.
First thing you should know about us is we’re a team and as a patient of NHO we’re looking after you too. We fully understand that one piece of the clinic cannot operate smoothly without the other, so in order for us to be the best we can be for our patients we also have to be the best version of ourselves in maintaining open and honest communication, working ethically, and to challenge the building of knowledge to continue to support our patient population.
Our patients are our first priority. We understand the hurdles that accompany diagnosis and are here to carry some of that for you. Each patient has their own patient advocate that personally follows their journey, can explain those confusing insurance questions, and vividly understands what financial considerations may be available at each point of treatment.
Having an on-site pharmacy with a Board-Certified Oncology Pharmacist makes obtaining medications easier, safer and more convenient for our patients at NHO. By providing an on-site pharmacy, NHO can dispense oral chemotherapy medications that may not be possible to fill at community pharmacies. With the ability to fill a prescription on the same day as an office visit at NHO, we are able to adjust medication doses without treatment delays. In addition, we strive to obtain financial assistance to help reduce costs to our patients whenever possible.
Collaboration benefits all. The physicians at NHO communicate amongst one another, with your primary care giver, and participate in regularly scheduled multidisciplinary tumor boards, reaching out to experts across the country to seek out the best care for each individual patient under our care. Constantly striving to do the very best, provide the very best, and support the patient in their lives the ways they wish to lead it.
Embracing change in support of continuous improvement of our patients is vital when we enter discussions of genetic services, treatment education, and advance directives. Providing care that is respectful of, and responsive to, individual patient preferences, needs and values, and ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions.
At Nebraska Hematology-Oncology, we believe that to best treat the disease we must first care for the person. We develop customized treatment programs based on the type and state of the cancer and the characteristics of the individual.
So please, familiarize yourselves with the clinic and let yourself rely on the team that you can trust. #TeamNHO
