Omaha health firm will be called Alegent Creighton
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Alegent Health says it plans to rename its company after it acquires Creighton University's hospital and clinics in Omaha.
Alegent said Sunday that on Sept. 1 it will become Alegent Creighton Health. And the company's network of clinics around the city will be called Alegent Creighton Clinics.
But the names of Creighton University Medical Center and Alegent's 10 hospitals will not change.
After the deal closes next month, Alegent will own all of Creighton's hospital, which is one of two trauma centers in the state's largest city.
Creighton's hospital has been operated by the university's partner, Tenet Healthcare Corp., which owned 74 percent of the hospital.
