Omaha Tribe breaks ground on health center

  • 0

Hard hats hang on shovels after the Omaha Tribe of Nebraska hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for expansion of the Carl T. Curtis Health Education Center on Thursday in Macy.  

MACY, Nebraska | The Omaha Tribe of Nebraska formally broke ground Thursday on an $8.3 million expansion of the Carl T. Curtis Health Education Center. 

The expansion to the center at 100 Indian Hills Drive in Macy will include additions to its nursing home, clinic, pharmacy, as well as a new community center in a separate location.

It is being funded by an Indian Health Services Contract Support Cost settlement the tribe received from the Ramah class action lawsuit.

The CTCHEC is a health care facility that was established in 1978 under a Omaha Tribe contract through Indian Health Service.

A separate groundbreaking is being held in Walthill, Nebraska, to commemorate the new clinic site and expansion of services at a later date.
