10 Years of Patient Care at Nebraska Spine Hospital

Did you know? Nebraska Spine Hospital is celebrating its 10th birthday this year! August 16, 2020 is exactly 10 years since the first surgery at Nebraska Spine Hospital. Since we’re unable to have an in-person celebration, we decided that sharing what our staff and patients have to say about Nebraska Spine Hospital is the next best way to celebrate.

What Our Patients Have to Say

“If you have to have spine surgery, this is the very best place to have it!!!! While the doctors are all excellent diagnosticians and surgeons, it is the nurses who are truly wonderful! Whether it be the day or the night shift, they are all, without a doubt, knowledgeable, nice, compassionate and truly wonderful professionals (many, many special thanks to Kristi, Tonya, Mel, and Amanda!). The doctors come in and see you for just a few minutes a day; but they have other patients and busy practices which demand their time, although I have never felt short-changed. But it is the nurses who are with you 24/7 after your surgery while you are recovering. From pre-op through post-op, and up on the floor, they are simply the best!!!!!” – Deborah S., Google review

“I can’t say enough good things about my experience. Being in healthcare for 20+ years can kinda make you skeptical and critical when you are a patient relying on others to care for you. My expectations were beyond met! Dr. McClellan is an absolutely amazing and caring surgeon. The day of surgery, every person myself and my family encountered were so welcoming and pleasant. Judy, who I had in preop and pacu, was fabulous! She was so calming and compassionate while I was in her care. Once in my room, I had so many great members of the team, however Katie sticks out the most. She was so ahead of everything and I never had to ask for anything from fresh water to pain meds. She was so encouraging and loving. Any questions or concerns I had while in the hospital or once discharged were addressed. Thank you to everyone involved in my care [and] making me feel like I mattered.” – Heather L., Facebook review

“My mom had surgery here today & the staff is AMAZING! All nurses have been so caring & have great personalities & a sense of humor. Vicki in the waiting area takes great care of the family members who are waiting in the surgical waiting room. She even brought out warm cookies! Rhonda the Nurse Navigator is wonderful & thoroughly explained everything. Pre-op Jenna (hopefully spelled right) & RN Rhonda post-op on the 8th floor recovery have all been amazing! You have done a wonderful job of selecting your staff. I’m sure there are many others I have not had the chance to meet yet, but thank you for taking such good care of my mom.” – Julie J., Facebook review
