Nebraska Methodist Hospital

Omaha, NE

This project includes a remodel of the fourth and fifth floors of the north and south tower of Methodist Hospital. The project team provided a design for the two floors to provide 52 intermediate care and medical/surgical patient rooms with required support spaces, including equipment storage, supply rooms, nurse stations, nourishment rooms, medication rooms, offices, and EVS rooms. By expanding the patient recovery spaces and incorporating the latest design and medical standards, Nebraska Methodist Health System aims to improve the overall patient experience and the quality of care provided to the community. This project represents a commitment to enhancing healthcare services and creating a healing environment for patients and their families.
