Practicing at OneWorld

OneWorld Community Health Centers is a family of state-of-the-art primary care health clinics. Our flagship location resides in the beautifully restored, historic Livestock Exchange Building in South Omaha, flanked by the OneWorld Women’s Health Center and a Quick Sick urgent care clinic. We also operate several satellite locations.

We are a dynamic, fast-growing organization that has received regional and national recognition for our innovative programs and quality of care. We have implemented an integrated model of health care that includes behavioral health, dentistry, pharmacy, nutrition, midwife services, pediatrics, family medicine and OB/GYN residency training clinics.

OneWorld’s clinicians form a dedicated and interconnected clinician team. We have strong collaboration among pediatric, adult, obstetric, women’s health and other practices.

Opportunities for advancement include leadership positions as OneWorld continues to expand our health care campus and open new satellite locations throughout the Omaha area.

National Health Service Corps

OneWorld Community Health Centers is a National Health Service Corps (NHSC) approved site. The NHSC is a program run by the federal government under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The NHSC helps bring clinicians to areas of the United States that have limited access to quality health care. As part of the program, students, residents and health care providers who are committed to furthering the NHSC’s goal of ensuring health care access for all populations are awarded scholarships for participation.

Each year, Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) scores ranging from zero to 25 for primary care and mental health and from zero to 26 for dental care, are awarded to each NHSC-approved site. The higher the score a facility receives, the greater the need is for quality health care in that area. These scores are awarded to each site based on the population-to-primary-care-physician ratio, the percentage of the population with incomes below 100 percent of the poverty level, the infant mortality rate or low birth weight rate and travel time or distance to the nearest available source of care.

OneWorld’s Current HPSA Scores by Speciality
  • Medical – 20
  • Dental – 22
  • Mental Health – 23
