Each morning Kari Jones, RN, wakes up to a text that tells her exactly where she’s going that day. One day she might be assigned to a geriatric unit at Bryan East Campus, and then the next, she’s helping at the Emergency Department on Bryan West Campus.

As a float nurse, the unknown is just a part of the job – and she’s been doing it for nearly 30 years.

“I like change,” she said. “It's nice, because everybody's always happy to see me.”

When a family member or friend of a sick person needs a space for prayer and peace, they can go to one of two chapels at Bryan Health campuses in Lincoln.

This week’s highlights the Mundhenke Chapel on Bryan East Campus and the Osborne Chapel on Bryan West Campus. The chapels are a place where people of all faiths – or no faith – can come to find comfort. Beautiful stained-glass windows and paintings adorn the chapel walls to provide a soothing environment.

Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the chapels are always available for visitor use. The chapels are just one element of the pastoral care at Bryan Health, which focuses on the spiritual side of care.


Dr. David Newton leads a discussion on advancements in screening for colon cancer and the importance of early detection in this episode of Bryan Health Podcasts.

Listen to the full podcast:


When she heard the news, Lynn was ready to “let the cancer take me” instead of going through treatment.

A childhood trauma made the idea of losing control over her body and environment terrifying. It’s very real. Past trauma can have a devastating effect on patients in need of care. Fortunately, the team at Bryan Medical Center knows this and took extra steps to care for Lynn.

Meet the dynamic duo that entered her life to help her through treatment:


Congratulations to Kayla Wemhoff, RN, on receiving a DAISY Award.

"Recently, my father experienced a medical emergency when he fell and suffered two brain bleeds. In the midst of this challenging time, Kayle went above and beyond providing him with the highest level of care and support. From the moment she stepped into his room, Kayla's compassionate and nurturing demeanor immediately put us at ease.

Kayla's exceptional care extended far beyond the confines of her job description. She treated my father not just as a patient but as a beloved family member, providing him with the dignity, respect and compassion he deserved. Her unwavering commitment to excellence and her ability to uplift and inspire those around her make her a true healthcare hero."

Thank you for being helpful and welcoming, Kayla! We are proud of you. The DAISY Award recognizes outstanding nurses at Bryan.


From April showers to May flowers, we welcome the newest blooms of the season!


Eight months ago, Maddie Rott couldn’t walk. On Sunday, she ran in the Lincoln Half Marathon.

Maddie is from San Diego and is currently a junior at the University of Tennessee. During an internship in Michigan last summer, she suffered a serious reaction to a prescribed medication. Her parents flew to her to drive her home.

They had to stop at an urgent care west of Lincoln due to Maddie’s deteriorating condition. She was quickly transported by helicopter to Bryan Medical Center.

Maddie spent nearly 11 weeks at the center. She had to re-learn simple, everyday tasks at inpatient rehab.

She returned to Lincoln last weekend to run in the race with Riley Johnson, an occupational therapist who treated Maddie.

They crossed the finish line hand-in-hand, with Maddie wearing the same shoes in which she learned to walk again.

Check out Maddie's inspiring story from KOLN/KGIN 10/11 News

Loss, fear, faith and trust.

While these words can describe many moments in our lives, they have special meaning to those who lived and worked through the COVID-19 pandemic. They are just a few of the sentiments captured in beautiful murals created by artist Eddie Dominguez to share with our community.

The murals honor the dedication and perseverance of Bryan Health employees to help guide Nebraskans through this extraordinary time. We invite you to enjoy their beauty.

On Bryan West Campus, three pillars adorn the front sidewalk of the facility. On Bryan East Campus, a mural stretches across the wall of a parking garage. Both feature words and phrases submitted by Bryan Health employees that represent feelings surrounding the pandemic.

The pieces, created by University of Nebraska-Lincoln art professor Eddie Dominguez, were exclusively funded by donors to recognize the sacrifices made by Bryan employees.

Congratulations to Dr. Matthew Purbaugh for receiving the Care Like Crazy Award!

A few fellow staff members shared these kind words about Dr. Purbaugh.

“We had two critically ill patients with profound neurologic injury on the ICU at the same time. The severity of the situations were emotionally taxing on the family and the staff involved. In both unique situations, he was able to communicate both directly and honestly with families, while delivering life changing news with compassion and empathy. He took the time to explain the anatomy and physiology of the brain and why he was seeing what he was seeing with his assessment. His ability to communicate with families during these devastating situations is unmatched and you could just feel the way he cared like crazy. Dr. Purbaugh is an outstanding asset to the Bryan Health team in many ways.”

Dr. Purbaugh, thank you for the care you provide daily to your patients. You make a difference in the lives of others. We are honored that you are part of the Bryan Medical Staff.


Meet Beka, our April Milestone Achiever!

Beka, a brave 4-year-old, has made tremendous progress in his eating habits through occupational therapy.

He had to face big challenges when it came to eating, but he did not give up. His hard work paid off and now he confidently joins family meals, uses utensils and tries various kinds of foods.

Beka's journey is a shining example of the power of dedication and hard work in overcoming sensory food challenges.

Let's celebrate Beka's success and keep shining!


With no known cure, a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease is a lifelong burden. The disorder, which affects the central nervous system, can only be slowed instead of completely stopped.

However, one way to literally fight off symptoms of Parkinson’s is through Rock Steady Boxing. The program can be found around the globe, but the only Rock Steady class in Lincoln is at Bryan LifePointe Campus.

The class is offered three days a week and comprises exercises to address various symptoms of Parkinson’s, including body tremors and memory issues. Patients punch boxing bags and dummies, stretch different parts of their bodies and practice daily movements such as reaching and bending.

“Boxing is for everyone, and this class is meant to help anybody at any level of Parkinson’s,” instructor and clinical exercise specialist Nicole Morton said. “This class is all about fighting back and kicking Parkinson’s in the rear and making sure you feel confident.”

Watch the video above to see the 10/11 News story on the class.

Congratulations to Mary Johnson, Patient Care Technician, for receiving the March Tulip Award!

"Every shift that Mary works is a good one, regardless of the acuity, workload etc. She brings a caring, kind, helping hand to each and every patient. Not only can she be found providing basic cares to the sickest of patients, but she is often found taking time to sit down and get to know them and their family members. She is frequently recognized by patients and staff as a hardworking, caring, and valuable member of the team. We truly couldn’t have such great care of our patients without her by our sides! If you need help with a turn or a bath, or just a good laugh, Mary is your girl!"

Mary, thank you for the care you provide daily to your patients. You make a difference in the lives of others. We are grateful that you are part of the Bryan Medical Staff.


Spring has arrived in Nebraska. The sun is shining longer each day, the temperature is rising, and flowers are blooming all around. With the yearly arrival of spring, we all can regain our appreciation for beauty in the world.

Dave Miers, Senior Director of Behavioral Health Services at Bryan Medical Center, said experiencing the beauty of nature and art can provide many benefits to patients and their families.

“Art and nature go hand-in-hand,” Miers said. “They have the ability to increase pleasure and reduce stress, combining to make a big impact on well-being.”

With our new “Beauty at Bryan” series, we aim to highlight the places where Bryan patients and their families can immerse themselves in beauty during the care process.

Which spots around our campuses would you like us to highlight in this series?
