Madonna Rehabilitation Hospitals is expanding upon its commitment to world-class rehabilitation in Lincoln, Nebraska. On Wednesday, December 4, Madonna announced a massive, $57 million, 3-story patient wing and renovation of the Lincoln Campus.
“We are excited to embark on the next chapter of Madonna’s long history of rebuilding the lives of our friends and neighbors here in Nebraska and across the country,” said Paul Dongilli Jr., Ph.D., Madonna president and CEO. “Lincoln has been our home base for more than 60 years—our commitment to this community is stronger than ever.”
The project will encompass 112,000 square feet in addition to creating a new and inviting façade to the hospital’s entrance and updating parking. With the modernization, 59 of the campuses current 120 rooms will be replaced and equipped with the latest cutting-edge rehabilitation technology, improving the patient experience and affirming the hospital’s position as a critical part of the health care continuum.
In conjunction with improving the inpatient experience, this overhaul will also include the renovation of 50,000 square feet of space dedicated to outpatient registration, as well as overall support services.
Madonna has called Lincoln home since 1958 when the Benedictine Sisters of South Dakota purchased the property at 56th and South Streets. In the more than 60 years that Madonna has served the community, the hospital has transformed into a destination for rehabilitation catering to not only the needs of Nebraskans, but to adults and children nationwide seeking recovery from brain and spinal cord injury, stroke and neurological conditions. Patients at Madonna’s Lincoln Campus rehabilitation hospital rank in the top 2% nationally in terms of complexity, and this refresh of the campus will ensure that all patients continue to receive the best possible care.
Madonna is proud to partner with Lincoln area experts, Davis Design and Sampson Construction, to design and construct this new, multi-million dollar addition. Groundbreaking for the project is anticipated in spring 2020 with an estimated completion in January 2023.
