Expansions, Renovations Fill Health System Construction Calendars

Published: Feb. 1, 2016

Hard hats and hammers all will remain familiar features around Omaha hospitals as 2016 progresses.

Methodist Hospital will be nearly finished with a 3½-year, $77.4 million expansion and renovation at its 48-year-old campus at 84th and Dodge Streets.

Patients, employees and work crews at Methodist have grown so familiar with each other that Steve Goeser, Methodist Health System’s president and chief executive officer, jokes that he needs to line up additional projects so the cranes outside his office won’t be left homeless.

Methodist construction projects were among those featured in the annual Omaha World-Herald Outlook 2016 section.
