The exterior of the building is really starting to wrap up.

It appears that they are putting on the finishing touches.  Landscaping is now going in and the addition looks fantastic.

I have a feeling the triangle between the new building and the old building along Dodge street is going to be all green space.

After closing off the intersection of 84th and Indian Hills, they've used a telescoping crane to add a mobile oncology unit to the small parking lot to the west of Children's Hospital. The intersection will be closed again tomorrow so there's a possibility they may add a second unit. Got a great view of it from our staff lounge on the 6th floor.

I heard from an employee and my nursing instructor that Children's Hospital owns the land that American National Bank and the gas station sit on and plan to expand there sometime around 2018.

That would make sense, then the hospital will have the whole property bordering Dodge and 84th St.

They plan to build a new facility for the NICU, which currently occupies 4N and 5N in Methodist Hospital. They will vacate these floors once (or if) they build on that land. A bunch of other stuff will be accommodated too.

I've heard effectively the same. This expansion will be significant, based on my understanding.

It could be quite the concentration of buildings there. What would be kind of nice is if they left a ground level or maybe slightly elevated open/partially covered portion as sort of a garden, so patients/visitors can enjoy themselves and escape the 4 walls of their hospital room. I'm wondering how they will build around the helipad; or maybe if they might move it.

I hope the hospital can spur some development across Dodge too. They tore down the old CD/1-88 Junk place a few months back and now the Jiffy-Lube is boarded up. The Dodge corridor is really starting to look aged and a little rundown.

'Big, bold vision': Children’s CEO plans new building on campus, buys up HDR land across street for further expansion

Dr. Richard Azizkhan said this week that Children’s has purchased the HDR campus across the street for $33.5 million. Azizkhan also expects to erect another building on his hospital’s existing campus for more clinical space and to hire dozens more specialists.

HDR had expected to move downtown, but a deal on a site fell through this spring. Children’s now is HDR’s landlord and expects to move into the HDR property in 2020. Azizkhan said Children’s will use the buildings on the HDR campus for offices, for teaching space for resident doctors and med students, and for research.

A new building of up to nine stories on the Children’s campus at 8200 Dodge St. would provide more clinical space. Site work could begin late this year. The hospital has 11 operating rooms, and Azizkhan said he would like to expand to 20 or 24. Surgeries at Children’s increased 13 percent in 2015 and are on pace to go up 7 or 8 percent more this year, he said.

Azizkhan said the number of beds will eventually increase from 140 to 230 or 240. Over the next nine years, he hopes to add up to 120 pediatric specialists to the 170 to 180 at the hospital now.


The new building would be built where the green footprint is according to the article.

Didn't they say last June they weren't interested in the space? Oh well there went all my guesses about the future of that area.

From the other article in the paper today:

Children’s doesn’t plan demolition or major renovation, Azizkhan said, at least for the short term.
The two HDR-occupied buildings — one built in 1972, the other in 1998 — in 2020 would house medical-related administrative services, researchers, faculty and training rooms so that clinical and patient activities can be focused at the main hospital.
If any building were to be razed, Azizkhan said, the Durham Plaza commercial office building, which is nearing 60 years old, likely would be the first because of its age. But that would not occur for at least five years, he said.
Currently fully occupied, the 36,650-square-foot Durham building houses a variety of businesses, including a Pinnacle Bank branch, Nebraska poison control offices, Bridges Investment Management and the Nebraska Methodist Hospital Foundation.
Some of those tenant leases run through 2023. A hospital spokeswoman said that Children’s will look to move administrative functions into that building as leases end.

It is advisable not to state in a very public fashion that you are interested in a property prior to entering into negotiations to buy it. Negotiations 101.

True, but it also says twice in the first 3 paragraphs that Childrens has a NEW CEO.

Yes, it does say that. I hope you're not implying that the hospital needed to bring in a doctor from Cincinnati to state the obvious: the hospital is landlocked with the HDR parcel being the only adjacent parcel that would provide for meaningful expansion. I think the leadership at Children's deserves a little more credit than that.

I know nothing about the leadership of the hospital. I got the feeling when I was reading the paper at 6:50am this morning in the lobby of the dentists office that it seemed like it was a new leader with new ideas. May be I should go back and read it again now that its afternoon and I have a few cups of coffee in me.

No worries. I would just be very surprised if the Hospital (Children's or Methodist) weren't eyeing that property for some time.

I don't know. The one I am referring to is accessed by and under the circular drop-off on the south side. It was patient/visitor parking when we've used it, but employees might allowed there too.

The Theodore F & Claire M Hubbard Family Foundation was founded in 1996 after Dr. Hubbard passed away. He received an MD from UNL in 1946 and after working at the Mayo clinic, moved back to Omaha were Dr. Hubbard became a pioneer in Cardiology (Dr. Hubbard was a member of the first cardiovascular surgical team in Omaha and also perfected dry-field heart surgery, a process that uses a machine to perform the functions of a patients heart and lungs so doctors may complete heart operations free of blood.)

They formed a $25M endowment which has given primarily for education and human services in the past such as the University of Nebraska Medical Center (The Hubbard Family Foundation has made a gift to the University of Nebraska Foundation to establish two endowed chairs in the College of Medicine at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The Theodore F. Hubbard, M.D. Chair of Cardiology and the Theodore F. Hubbard, M.D. Chair of Cardiovascular Research) University of Nebraska–Lincoln, University of Nebraska State Museum and its branch museum at Ashfall Fossil Beds State Historical Park, and University of Nebraska at Omaha. The foundation has also provided support to Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, among other Nebraska organizations.

If you look at how the Arboretum on Farnam lines up with 81st St in the first photo, at least the American National Bank has to go, and if they extend 81st to Dodge so will The Buchanan BP, which would be great because that intersection at 80th merging into Dodge is a complete |expletive|.
