The hospital is nationally ranked in six categories on the U.S. News & World Report's 2014-15 hospital rankings and has borne a Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center since 2007.

The hospital is part of the Nebraska Medicine system that includes several clinics, outpatient centers and a 51-bed hospital in Bellevue, Neb. The system employs more than 450 physicians in 50 specialties and sub-specialties. With 627 licensed beds and 33 operating rooms in its main hospital in Nebraska, the hospital admitted 24,557 patients in its 2013 fiscal year and maintained an average daily census of 360. The hospital saw 50,794 people in its ED in 2013 and conducted 427,786 outpatient visits. The medical center also hosts one of the nation's Ebola biocontainment units, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention commissioned in 2005. The unit has 10 beds, and the staff receives specialized training on how to treat Ebola or other contagious diseases when an infected patient comes to the unit.

In their own words:

It is an honor to be included on the 100 Great Hospitals list. Although we may not have the national name recognition of some of the others on the list, the people who work for this organization wholeheartedly believe that our patients receive a level of treatment and care consistent with what the best in the industry also provide. For our staff members, our brand promise of "Serious Medicine. Extraordinary Care." is much more than a slogan. It is what each of our patients receive and what all of our employees, at every level of the organization, strive to provide every day.
