Not sure about the open space other than that I know that for some reason the hospital wanted direct access of W. Dodge. In the interim I am going to guess a parking lot. Eventually I believe a parking structure will be built on Children's land. The question is if it will be the open space north of the hospital or east of the hospital.

Think west of there. I would also guess some of this empty space will be filled by a widened West Dodge Road. I know the city has been studying it and I would guess it will makes it was into the Capital Improvement plan before long.

With all the properties they've nabbed along Dodge and 84th Streets, which form a triangle shape, it seems like a terrible waste to just make an addition that juts straight out like that.  Not a very good use of space.

This is a Children's Hospital. Do you think they want to look out the window everyday they are hospitalized to see what? a parking lot? the wall of another building? I think grass, gardens and trees are a much better alternative for their healing process.

Heck, at this rate, in 10 years they will need it for another expansion.

Children's Hospital, UNMC tighten their bond

http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_page=1 ... d=10120973

If your child is seen by a specialist at Children's Hospital, chances are the doctor is on the faculty at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

That's part of a working relationship that Children's and UNMC have had for decades.

Now the relationship is to be formalized under an agreement between the UNMC College of Medicine and Children's. The two institutions announced the deal Friday.

Harold Maurer, UNMC chancellor, said the affiliation will increase the national prominence of both Children's and the College of Medicine.

"That connection is critical," he said.

As part of the agreement, Children's will contribute $1 million annually to a fund that will be used to support the shared goals of the hospital and the college.

I was in HDR the other day and I saw a board with Children's Hospital on it... so I went over and looked at it... what you see in the pic doesn't do it justice.  What they have on their board is much bigger, plus they showed, Phase I, II, III, IV, and V.

A picture's with 1,000 words.  Seeing as you don't have a picture, get to typing!  What do the current, and future plans have in store?  Scale, size, what?!

Well, I know no specifics, but they supposedly have been in negotiations with American National Bank before. I would think there is a possibility of a parking garage in the area of Davidsons/American National Bank.

I also wonder if this poster is more referring to Methodists plans, which may refer to developing the land they already own between Farnam Dr. and Dodge St. They may also purchase the fire station and Village Inn & Econo Lodge. Remember, they also own most of the real estate between Indian Hills Dr. and West Dodge Road between 84 St. and 90th St. All of the land except HDR.

Ok, I'll give a description a try.  The pic/model you see above the one in the pic by Coyote, the addition seems about right, but from the board at HDR it seemed to be a bit more substantial than the one in the picture.  The next phases are actually a parking garage below and building which jets out (the circular wall of glass) like the one does now...  The new building/parking garage will sit to the East of the new building now in the photo (which I don't believe to be the final render - at least from what I saw... but please bare with me, I only looked at the board for a few quick seconds), and North of the existing building.  This future phase however, would need to see the demolition of the Strip center now located there.

Children's Hospital gets name change

http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_page=2 ... d=10532522

Rick Ruggles, http://www.omaha.com wrote:Children’s Hospital now will be called "Children’s Hospital and Medical Center" and sport a new logo to reflect the research and teaching that occur there.

The name also reflects the fact that Children’s entered a formal affiliation in 2007 with the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s College of Medicine, said Gary Perkins, president and chief executive officer of the institution at 8200 Dodge St.

Any updates?

And as for the Name change and new symbol, my Mom, who works there as an oncology nurse, thinks it a waste of money in a recession and she thinks the symbol isn't what they payed for.

I am not sure how much $ Children's gets from the state/feds, but I do know that this expansion has been on the books for close to 5 years now.

I also am understanding that most of this expansion is for the Audiology dept. which just happens to be close to my heart. (So possible bias there).

But nonetheless, Children's hospital does have great staff, doctors and extended network of help from outside doctors and clinics, etc, but their Audiology/ENT, depts need better facilities. They now only have a small section of space and they need to grow. And the only other place to go in town for help in this area is BoysTown, and while many seem to like them, we had way too many [bad] stories to report that we just were not happy with how things went.

So I am very happy that the new expansion is going well, even if it is still going to take a couple of years before completion and movement of departments into the new space.

I had to run by the hospital today and got a good view from the top of the hill.  This building is really starting to grow.

Looks like the building is around 3 stories now.  On a side note, there are a lot of cameras above the addition on the finished hospital, anyone know if they are public?

Really?  I am 32 now, but as a child I was born with something like 20% hearing in both ears.  I had multiple surgeries and about 6-8 sets of tubes until I was in 6th grade (or so).  I can't complain with them, as I have great hearing now and have had no problems for 20 years or so.

Have they just gone downhill since then?

I had a friend move here from New York City (born and raised in Queens) for the sole reason of wanting to work for Boys Town as an audiologist or speech pathologist (can never remember which one).  Seems like they must still have a pretty good reputation in the ENT community.

Again, people's experiences are different. We and a few others had some bad stories/events from B.T., They seem to be on top of their game, but a few doctors need to go and learn some 'bed-side' manners.

"Children's Hospital & Medical Center officials are beaming.

The hospital held a “topping out” ceremony at 11 a.m. today as the final steel beam was placed atop the Children's Specialty Pediatric Center."

Thank you Omaha World-Herald for clarifying for everyone that hoisting the final steel beam onto the building does NOT mean the building is ready for occupancy.

The rendering is stretched slightly (way to go OWH), making the buildings appear taller and more imposing. Either way, the rendering looks great, and this will be impressive from Dodge St.

Can you imagine if 80 Dodge were going up across the street??? You'd have the beginnings of a Dodge Street canyon in that area...

The brick is moving the building, which is adding a whole new feel.  The concrete was cold and dark, but the brick is really warming things up.
