CHI Health Center Omaha fka CenturyLink Center is an arena and convention center facility in the North Downtown neighborhood in Omaha, Nebraska. The 1.1 million ft² facility has an 18,300-seat arena, a 194,000-ft² exhibition hall and 62,000 ft² of meeting space.

The arena opened in 2003 as Qwest Center Omaha. It adopted its current name on July 15, 2011 as part of a $22 billion buyout of Qwest by CenturyLink (formerly CenturyTel). All signage, inside and outside, will be changed to conform to the new arena name; lighting will also be switched (from blue to green). The transition was expected to be completed by August 1, 2011. However, all the inside changes had been made, the outside name changes were finally completed on December 20, 2011.

The arena hosts various basketball games, hockey games, professional wrestling events and concerts. Another notable event held there is the annual shareholders meeting of Omaha-based conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway.

Previous names of the facility are "The Qwest", "The Riverfront Centre", "The Omaha Convention Center & Arena" or "The CLink".
