Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln is planning to open a new $60 million hospital in Omaha. Madonna CEO Marsha Lommel announced plans for the new facility on Thursday.
Lommel said officials from the Nebraska Medical Center and Methodist hospitals in Omaha encouraged Madonna to consider building the new facility to improve rehabilitation care in the state's largest city. The new 200,000-square-foot hospital will have 120 beds and employ about 800 people.
Lommel said Madonna is not planning to make any changes at its Lincoln facility.
A site for the new hospital has not been chosen. Lommel said the hospital should open in the fall of 2015.
