About Us

Enhancing the well-being of Nebraska’s physicians by proactively addressing unique challenges and fostering a culture of self-care.

To be the catalyst for a culture of holistic wellness in the Nebraska medical community, where physicians find support, resources, and inspiration to achieve optimal health, balance, and fulfillment in both their personal and professional journeys.

The LifeBridge Nebraska physician wellness program is committed to promoting the well-being of our physicians. We believe that by prioritizing the mental and physical health of our physicians, we can enhance patient safety and improve access to care for all.

Our goal is to provide our physicians with the resources and support they need to maintain their own health and well-being, so they can provide the highest quality care to their patients. We recognize that physicians face unique stressors and challenges that can impact their mental and physical health, and we are committed to addressing these issues through a comprehensive wellness program.

Through our program, we aim to:

  • Promote self-care practices and stress-management techniques that can help our physicians maintain their physical and emotional well-being.
  • Foster a culture of wellness within our healthcare organizations that encourages open communication and support among the healthcare community.
  • Provide education and training to help our physicians recognize signs of stress and burnout.
  • Offer personalized peer coaching support to help our physicians navigate the challenges unique to their careers.
  • Continuously evaluate and improve our wellness program to ensure that it meets the evolving needs of our physicians and the patients they serve.

By prioritizing physician wellness, we believe we can create a healthier, happier workforce that is better equipped to provide safe, high-quality care to patients. We are committed to supporting our physicians in every way possible, so they can continue to serve their patients with compassion, expertise, and dedication.

LifeBridge Nebraska offers confidential access to any of four trained physician coaches representing various specialties and practice settings. The trained physician coaches address physicians who are experiencing burnout and distress as well as those who are seeking preventive measures to be proactive. This coaching service is available at no cost to the physician and is sustained through the generous contributions from our partners.

Coaching sessions may center around several topics such as gaining clarity in your purpose, achieving your health & fitness goals, igniting passion in your relationships, becoming a more effective leader, and preparing, implementing, and maintaining changes. If a physician is experiencing a more serious problem, a referral will be made to ensure they can receive the appropriate level of help needed.
