Nebraska Medicine plans billion dollar campus expansion

Nebraska Medicine and the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha are planning a sprawling $1 billion to $2 billion medical complex with buildings for research and inpatient care. 

Renderings of the new medical complex are not available, but Nebraska Medicine said it plans to build one or more towers for research and inpatient care to consolidate care at one location and replace some of its older facilities.

The project aims to upgrade the medical campus, provide more space for clinical trials and improve student recruitment efforts.

"We want the medical center to continue to be a prime mover in propelling Nebraska’s economy to new heights," said Jeffrey Gold, MD, chancellor of the medical center and the University of Nebraska. "This project will do just that. It will strengthen our position as a leading generator of new economic growth. We will educate and train even more health professionals from around the world and recruit faculty and staff who are stars who will then attract more federal funding, corporate investment and patients from around the globe."
