Ambassador Health and DCL Form Strategic Partnership to Enhance Patient Care.

Lincoln, NE - Ambassador Health, a local, family-owned rehabilitation
center, and DCL, Nebraska’s largest independent, nonprofit dialysis organization, have formed a strategic partnership that will provide hemodialysis services on-site for those with end stage kidney disease and/or acute kidney injuries. Through the innovative partnership, there is no need for rehabilitation residents to travel outside of Ambassador Health to receive high-quality dialysis care. This allows residents to maintain a normal rehabilitation schedule, including appointments, meals, and activities, in order to return to their homes as soon as possible.

For over four decades, Ambassador Health has provided post-hospital rehabilitation and skilled nursing care to patients recovering from injury or illness. In response to the growing and changing needs of patients, Ambassador Health continues to provide innovative solutions by offering multiple levels of care and services unique to each resident.

"DCL & Ambassador Health of Lincoln have forged a strategic partnership that will allow both entities to help deliver comprehensive patient centered care for those who choose us. This innovative care model will improve patient outcomes and also help transition patients through their recovery process." -Tyler Juilfs, CEO, Ambassador Health.

"It is a great honor to be considered a respected organization that has been committed to caring for people in need of dialysis in our communities for over 36 years. When you find a similar organization that shares in longevity, commitment to care, and an openness to explore innovative ways to transform the care they provide; that is a true partnership worth developing. This is exactly what DCL and Ambassador Health have achieved by aligning high-quality rehabilitative and dialysis care in one location. This innovative model of care is the first to be offered in our state and region. By aligning the excellent care our organizations are known for, we believe patients requiring dialysis and skilled rehabilitative care will greatly benefit from this new
partnership." -Scott Butterfield, CEO, DCL.

Ambassador Health is proud to be partnered with DCL to provide meaningful quality care that is aligned with our mission and vision as a healthcare provider.
