To all my valued patients and families,

I am reaching out to let you know that after 30 years of practicing pediatrics  (nearly 25 of which have been at  Complete  Children’s  Health), I am winding it down by the end of this year. As you recall, I have been working half time here at CCH and part-time as Chief Medical Officer for Bryan  Health Connect (BHC).   BHC is a  locally  based  physician-hospital  organization dedicated to improving the health of all  Nebraskans while holding down rising medical costs and  improving the experience we have when  we become  patients. I have been asked to expand my role and commitment to BHC and accepted the offer.

We have a  new pediatrician that recently joined our practice, Dr. Kimberly White. She completed her pediatric residency training at the  University   of  Nebraska   Medical  Center   and   comes  to   us   highly recommended. We are excited that she accepted our offer to join Complete Children’s Health. She is primarily located at our north office on Salt Creek Circle and is accepting patients.  Our website features a biography of Dr. White and I encourage you to consider her for your next  pediatrician. Dr. David Meduna, Dr. Amy Bargen,  Dr. Sarah  Matthias, and Jen Genthe, APRN also have some capacity to add to their practice if you prefer to transfer your care to them.  If you like our CCH West A location, Dr. Luke Anschutz, and Dr. Sahra Niazi  are accepting patients. Dr. Leah Hastings is also accepting patients at the CCH south  location on Hohensee Drive.

I have been  blessed with the opportunity to be part of the growth and development of the most progressive pediatric practice in Nebraska. I am immensely proud  of the organization I  helped to build, and I    hope that you will continue to be a part of the Complete Children’s Health family. From dav one, our priority has been to center our growth and services around our patients and families. This dream became a reality.

It has been an  honor to serve as your pediatrician. Thank you so much for your trust, support, friendships, smiles and tears that have made me a better physician, father, and husband. You have given me an abundance of wonderful memories that I will carry with me the rest of my life.

Best regards,

Dr. Steve Russell
