Public-Private Partnership

A public-private partnership is the foundation of the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center. Already we have received unprecedented local and statewide support from:


$50 million

 State of Nebraska

$35 million

City of Omaha


Douglas County

These government entities recognize the importance of the health of Nebraskans and the project’s multimillion dollar boost to the state, county and city economy.

This project will create thousands of construction and industry jobs citywide. In addition, approximately 1,200 jobs will be needed at the medical center – each with an average salary of approximately $70,000. In total, the project will provide 4,657 new jobs to the metro area, infusing $537 million annually into the economy on an on-going basis.
