The newly remodeled Women's Health Resource Center (WHRC) opened with the new Olson Center for Women's Health grand-opening celebration October 17, 2007. Opened in 1994, the WHRC originally was a small office housing staff only, the new WHRC is a walk-in open-facility located right off the Olson Center waiting room. Housing over 200 brochures, an extensive resource library, a computer terminal for patients to research educational websites, and a staff that includes a bi-lingual associate, the Resource Center has truly become a valued addition to our healthcare services. The Resource Center continues to provide women's health education to the community, patients, health care providers, and students in the Omaha area, regionally and internationally. Lana Molczyk, Leni Rauschenberg, Christin McDermott, and Tammy Dawdy provide educational services and products to all guests. We also provide our services and many products in Spanish.
