Stanley M. Truhlsen Eye Institute

The University of Nebraska Medical Center breaks ground today on an eye institute that will transform vision care in the region.

The Stanley M. Truhlsen Eye Institute will bring clinicians, researchers and patients together in one state-of-the-art facility featuring specialized care and the latest in diagnostic medicine. It will house outpatient eye exam facilities for all ophthalmic subspecialties, a children’s eye care center, clinical research and a regional diagnostic center.

Construction on the Truhlsen Eye Institute is set to begin next year with completion tentatively set for late 2012. The total cost of the project is $30 million and will be completed in two phases. The first phase will be a 47,000-square-foot-building housing clinical services, clinical research, diagnostic and educational facilities. A surgical wing will be added later.

The building will be located at 40th and Leavenworth streets, west of the Weigel Williamson Center for Visual Rehabilitation and the Home Instead Center for Successful Aging.
