Omaha Project

Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital – Omaha Campus The Omaha campus is a solution for high quality post-acute care upon discharge from Omaha's exceptional trauma care hospitals and outstanding medical community. It is NOT another acute care hospital for Omaha. Currently, Omaha is underserved in physical rehabilitation. According to an HDR independent study, 1,300 individuals each year would qualify for rehabilitation in the metro area but are referred to nursing homes. These individuals frequently remain institutionalized or unable to resume their life roles.

Madonna plans to address this need by:

  • Purchasing land directly west of Village Pointe. (completed in 2013)
  • Developing a clinical and academic partnership with the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and its primary clinical partner, Nebraska Medicine, while advancing a new residency program in physiatry. (on-going)
  • Constructing a 110-bed facility with the full continuum of inpatient rehabilitation care at a cost of $70M for the building and $93M for the entire project. (beginning fall, 2014)
  • Partnering with DLR Group, Michael Graves and Associates and Page/ to design the project and with Kiewit Building Group Inc. to construct the Omaha Campus. (on-going)

As fundraising milestones are met, the project will proceed with an anticipated opening date fall of 2016.

Economic Impact:

  • $104 million during the construction phase for the 250,000 square foot facility at a cost of $70 million.
  • 450 initial jobs – 250 of which are in construction.
  • $45 million of annual revenue creating an economic impact of $86 million.
  • 820 jobs for the Omaha campus (once operational) with cumulative annual wages of $22 million. These jobs will create an additional 400 jobs for affiliated products and services.
  • The Madonna Foundation is building relationships with Omaha philanthropic and business leaders to support this vision for exceptional, specialized rehabilitation care. The project will fill a void in the healthcare continuum in the Omaha market. Madonna is taking the bulk of the financial risk, with only 20% of the project coming from fundraising. As fundraising milestones are met, the project will proceed with an anticipated opening date in 2016.
