Official groundbreaking on the Davis Global Center.

http://www.omaha.com/livewellnebraska/unmc-breaks-ground-on-million-davis-global-center-for-health/article_43e34d0a-1899-11e7-a1b2-97c1ff780401.html

University of Nebraska Medical Center officials broke ground today on a $118.9 million center they expect will transform health care education.

The building at 42nd and Emile Streets is to open in the fall of 2018 and will be named the Dr. Edwin Davis & Dorothy Balbach Davis Global Center for Advanced Interprofessional Learning – or, for short, the Davis Global Center.

The name, which awaits approval by the University of Nebraska Board of Regents, recognizes a "leadership gift" from the Dorothy B. Davis Foundation of Omaha. Edwin Davis was a longtime UNMC physician known as a forerunner in incorporating new technology to enhance teaching.

Described as the nation’s most advanced experiential health care training facility, the center will feature replicas of hospital rooms and other settings where students and health professionals can practice treating lifelike mannequins. The center also will feature new high-tech visualization and virtual reality tools – some the first of their kind in the world – that will allow students to virtually map a brain tumor or see how a protein folds.


The other program to be housed in the center is the National Center for Health Security and Biopreparedness. A floor was added to building plans last year after the university announced that it had received a $19.8 million federal grant to develop a new training, simulation and quarantine center in Omaha that will help federal health care workers train to treat Ebola and other infectious diseases.

They have started work on the hotel at Saddle Creek and Dodge. The sign says it will be a Home 2 Suites.

Yeah, but it's not the NebMed hotel. It's separate from the hospital, here's the Home 2 thread.

Thanks! I knew there should be a different thread but didn't think to search for brand name.

You know what? I don't like it. I won't get into the petty details of why I don't, but I do think UNMC should have done better.

Thanks for the update. I wish it was push out further toward the top of the hill on Saddle Creek to have a larger visual impact, but I suppose they wanted it in the center of that circle drive.

I love it. I wish omaha was one of those cities old enough to have a big roundabout with a pillar on the center like la Angel de la independence in Mexico city.

I just talked with the former interim CEO of Nebraska Medicine Bill Dinsmoor about Campus development and said as far as he knows the Hotel is still a go once Meyer-Munroe is vacated. He said it would have three floors of parking with the Hotel above and a skywalk to the cancer center.

From previous infotelligence, I believe it will be a 550 room full service Marriott.
With the 3 levels of parking and 15-18 floors for the rooms, it should change the look on this corner,
But with all the grading needed, this corner may be a nightmare for months.

Highly doubt it would be that tall. The hospital side is 8 stories with the new helipads on top of that. Don't think it would be any higher as it would interfere with the helicopter traffic.

I love their new location getting built near 86th & Giles. Sharp design!
"Crossroads Village" down the street from "Aksarben Village?" Does "Crossroads" have any meaning to people 20 and under? "Dodge At 72nd" is a type name I like better, drawing from the excitement of the iconic, special Omaha intersection. My $.02.

Thanks Guys. I was so lucky, right after I set up my camera and tripod, the streetlights all went out along that stretch. Made for a way better photo!

Now I’m conflicted that rumored hotel on the hillside would block that view from Dodge.

The hotel would be to the left of this photo and wouldn't block this view at all.

Cancer Center's Chihuly Sanctuary floor needs repair after rainwater seeps in

While the art installations inside and outside the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center’s Chihuly Sanctuary weathered the metro area’s June 29 hailstorm with no damage, water leaked under an exterior door due to the heavy rain and damaged some wood flooring inside the facility.

The final cost of repairs has yet to be determined but is expected to be less than $100,000, officials said. A property insurance claim has been started.
