An expansion that costs $86 million has started at Omaha VA Medical Center. Deputy Chief of Staff Dr. Marvin Bittner. “This is an outpatient building. So it’s for people who need medical care, but are not admitted to the hospital. So we’ll have some of our primary care teams where we have doctors working together with nurses and other health professionals to provide the day-to-day primary care for people’s problems.”
Bitter says the 157,000 square-foot expansion will include 5 operating rooms, radiology rooms, a special women’s clinic, and a specialty care area.
Construction is expected to be finished by the summer of 2020.
