Kiewit’s experience in the healthcare market dates back to the construction of Saint Joseph’s Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska in 1927. Since that time we have worked on countless projects, ranging from multi-floor renovations of operating hospitals, to new specialty clinics, medical research laboratories, hospitals and medical campuses. By combining our experienced project teams and proven planning methods with the latest technology, we have the ability to build any size healthcare project safely, on-time and on-budget.
There is no substitute for experience when it comes to healthcare construction. Every Kiewit Building Group healthcare project is led by members of our specialized Healthcare Group. This Group focuses strictly on healthcare construction and regularly receives continuing education through the American Society of Healthcare Engineers and other industry organizations. This specialized healthcare market focus continues through the commissioning process, project closeout and warranty support. From preconstruction planning through construction and post construction support, your project will be in the hands of a proven team of healthcare construction experts.
This project featured the transformation of a 96,000-square-foot building which had previously sat empty for two years into a state-of-the-art behavioral healthcare facility. The scope of work included a complete interior demolition and renovation and all new mechanical, electrical, control, security and network systems.
This multi-phased $28 million project completely modernized an existing community hospital in Hastings, Neb. Kiewit worked closely with hospital administration and the design team to plan and execute the work in a way that did not interfere with ongoing hospital operations. All work was completed on time and on budget.
The Brain Lab project consisted of the renovation of reclaimed space from a parking garage to house a new beam surgery room. The vault that houses the specialized equipment uses 30-inch-thick concrete walls and a 24-inch-thick concrete roof coupled with a primary lead shield to contain radiation used in patient treatment.
Kiewit has been working on The Nebraska Medical Center campus for over 60 years building new facilities and renovating existing buildings. The NMC campus contains over 5 million square feet of space including hospital facilities, specialty medical facilities and academic facilities for nursing and medical students.
With this project, the Nebraska Medical Center merged two facilities into a single state-of the-art healthcare center. The Center contains four core functional areas: emergency, surgery, radiology and a neonatal intensive care unit. The combined capabilities of the facility make it the largest emergency department in the Midwest.
This multi-phased project consisted of renovating existing medical ofﬁce space into 20 adult intensive care units and support areas. The project was completed directly adjacent to functioning surgery and lab areas, requiring close coordination with Medical Center staff throughout the project.
