Creighton Opens Expanded Clinic in Dundee

Creighton Medical Associates (CMA) opened its new Dundee medical clinic on Thursday, Aug. 28, at the former Dundee Hardware Plus, 50th and Underwood streets, in the heart of the Dundee business district.

The facility boasts more than 9,000 square feet and expanded medical services on one floor with convenient parking. In addition to medical care, educational opportunities for the public will be offered at the clinic.

Physicians specializing in general internal medicine, endocrinology and dermatology as well as other health care support staff will be available at the clinic. Endocrinologists will focus on metabolic diseases with special emphasis on diabetes, bone disease in diabetics, osteoporosis, pituitary gland disorders and thyroid disorders. A full-service diabetes center is also available.

“Our continued commitment to the health care needs of the Dundee neighborhood remains strong. This highly visible location provides not only more space; but more parking and easier patient access,” said Stephen Lanspa, M. D., CMA president.

Locating the clinic at the Underwood location was deemed as important to the continued renaissance and revitalization of the historic district. Creighton officials have worked closely with the neighborhood association to align construction and renovations with the neighborhood’s look and feel.

“Focusing on the medical needs of our neighborhoods while offering high quality, affordable health care in a way only an academic medical center can – and in an atmosphere and environment conducive of the best experience possible – is our ultimate goal,” Lanspa said.

For many years, the Dundee clinic was located on the first and third floors of a medical building at 119 N. 51 St. The new clinic is conveniently located to serve midtown residents and downtown workers. To schedule an appointment, call 402.280.1185.
