Patient Concerns and Complaints

Alegent Creighton Health strives to provide superior care to all those we serve and ensures patients that they can expect to receive reasonable care during their stay.  We do understand, however, that there may be times when you may feel your stay did not meet your reasonable expectations for care.  When this happens, Alegent Creighton Health recognizes your right to express concern and voice a grievance about your care in an environment that is non-threatening and constructive.

We welcome your concerns as an opportunity to improve our ability to care for you.  Because our commitment is to provide you with high quality in an environment that is safe and comfortable, you can be assured that your care will not be compromised by registering a concern, complaint or grievance through the Patient Action Lines or to any of the outside agencies listed below.

Concerns can be directed to Administration at each facility via the Patient Action Line, 24 hours a day. To assist you in directing your concern, complaint or grievance, please call Patient Action Line on your particular hospital campus.
