A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

A Cuban immigrant came to the U.S. in May of 2005 and spoke Spanish primarily. Since coming to Lincoln, she immediately felt the hospitality and wonderful treatment of the employees of the old “People’sHealth Center” today is known as “Bluestem Health.” At first, her health examinations were routine, but later she had to be referred to a pulmonologist. They had to communicate to her by phone that she had some nodules in her left lung. One of Bluestem's interpreters called her with such tact and delicacy that the news did not impact her as hard as it could have, especially since she had problems with being chronically hypertensive to situations.

Over the years, all the doctors, nurses, receptionists, and interpreters have shown that this clinic exists to fulfill the objective of helping to improve the lives and healing as many ailments as those who come here may suffer from. Currently, she 78 years old, and "they have made my life, despite being an elderly woman, have a sufficient quality of life."
