Hospitals   /  Midwest Surgical Hospital

The client for Midwest Surgical Hospital sought to create an environment that evoked the look and feel of a high-end hotel while integrating efficient work flow and patient-forward care. Located off of a main traffic artery in Omaha, Nebraska, Midwest Surgical Hospital is a neurological and orthopedic specialty hospital addition. The Altus Team set out to deliver a program on a restrictive site that dictated the building footprint.
