The Nebraska Urban Indian Health Coalition, Inc. (NUIHC) was founded in Omaha, Nebraska in 1986 by an intertribal group of concerned Native Americans. This visionary group saw a need to create an organization with the mission to elevate the health status of urban Indians to the highest level possible.

Today NUIHC, the only urban Indian organization in Omaha, is governed by a five-member Native American board of directors. NUIHC pioneered community health care as the first community health center in Lincoln and currently has a diverse patient base of almost 12,000.

The staff includes family practice physicians, nurse practitioners, nursing staff, marriage and family counselors, therapists, certified translators/interpreters and support staff. Available services include primary care, health education, nutrition counseling, testing and lab facilities and domestic violence intervention.
