Madonna Rehabilitation Hospitals—Omaha Campus is expanding its facility near Village Pointe Shopping Center, near 180th and Burke Streets by building an on-site physicians clinic to meet the growing demand for physician-led outpatient physiatry and therapy services.
“Madonna’s Omaha Campus outpatient physiatry and therapy services are growing faster than anticipated,” said Paul Dongilli Jr., Madonna president and CEO. “Demand for services has outpaced our pre-construction market needs assessment, leading us to open a clinic sooner than anticipated.” Dongilli said a physicians clinic has always been a key component of the Omaha Campus master plan.
This new clinic, which will feature 10 exam rooms and a dedicated physician office space, will add 7,800 square feet to the existing 263,000 square foot facility, providing more room to grow Madonna’s steadfast programs and partnerships.
“The clinic will further enhance our physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) training experience at Madonna, through its partnership with the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC),” said Dr. Samuel Bierner, medical director, Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital—Omaha Campus and chair of the PM&R department at UNMC.
The PM&R residency program was launched in the summer of 2018, and is the only such program in Nebraska and the first of its kind in a 5-state upper Midwest region. The program offers resident physiatrists the opportunity to participate in the care of pediatric and adult patients recovering from stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury and other complex medical issues.
The new exam and clinic space will provide dedicated space for Madonna and UNMC physicians to meet the growing need for outpatient physiatry and therapy services. More than 2,000 people have been treated through Madonna’s outpatient programs since the Omaha campus opened in October 2016; 910 of those people were served in the past year.
The construction on the on-site physicians clinic is anticipated to begin at the start of 2020 and be completed by September of that year.
