About Boys Town:

Boys Town has been changing the way America cares for children and families since 1917.  With over a century of service, our employees have helped us grow from a small boardinghouse in downtown Omaha, Nebraska, into one of the largest nonprofit, nonsectarian child and family care organizations in the country. With the addition of Boys Town National Research Hospital in 1977, our services branched out into the health care and research fields, offering even more career opportunities to those looking to make a real difference.

Boys Town National Research Hospital offers a broad range of hospital, clinic and residential services, backed by 40 years of life-changing research to provide the latest, most innovative care to our patients.  In 2019, provided care to more than 52,000 children and families.

Accredited by The Joint Commission, Boys Town Hospital operates one hospital at ​14000 Hospital Road on the campus of Boys Town, Nebraska, that includes acute pediatric inpatient hospitalization, surgical services and inpatient and residential care for children and adolescents with severe behavioral disorders. Our medical clinics include primary pediatric care with five Boys Town Pediatrics locations in the Omaha-metro area and specialty care clinics for children and adults across Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota.

Since its founding in 1977, Boys Town Hospital has been internationally recognized as a leader in clinical and research programs focusing on childhood deafness, language development and related communication disorders. We have developed national medical programs that are now instituted in hospitals and clinics across the country. Today, the hospital is leading the charge in neurobehavioral research in children to improve interventions and treatments for children with severe behavioral and mental health problems.

Most recently Boys Town has expanded its Pediatric Neuroscience care to provide access to more physicians, clinics and telemedicine for children in Omaha and across the region.

Living in Omaha:

Nebraska’s largest city is a bustling metropolis that combines big-city sizzle with simple country charm. Greater Omaha is home to over 30 communities and almost 1 million people, low cost of living and firm economic growth. Go wild at the ​world-class Henry Doorly Zoo. Stroll down the cobblestone streets of the Old Market, a downtown shopping, dining and entertainment district. Celebrate flight at the 300,000-square-foot Strategic Air and Space ​Museum. For sports fans, Omaha is home to the NCAA Men’s College World Series each June with an average attendance of over 350,000 fans. All of these attractions, and many others, are only a short ​drive apart.
