Hospitals   /  Nebraska Medicine, University Tower Patient Floors 4/5/6/7

A first phase of this project presented the Team with many complex challenges when designing the 26,000 SF Oncology Hematology Special Care Unit (OHSCU) renovation. The existing facility had varied floor-to-floor heights, structural impediments, including tight column spacing and lateral bracing. These technical challenges were addressed early to allow the planning team’s focus to shift to creating a healing environment for patients and a supportive setting for families and staff.

The 4th floor renovation project consolidated Nebraska Medicine’s women’s program which was previously in two separate locations on campus. The project included a new C-Section operating suite that replaced the existing undersized and outdated C-Section suites. The labor and delivery and C-Section rooms were strategically located closest to the existing NICU unit to greatly reduce travel time in emergency situations. The remodel also allowed hospital space to be moved out of a 1915 vintage building resulting in a completely revitalized department with up-to-date finishes and infrastructure.

The next phase of this project is the renovation of floors 5 and 6 which includes Pediatrics, Pediatric ICU, and Adult ICU. The construction documents for this phase are complete, awaiting approval from Nebraska Medicine to begin construction.
