Children's Hospital & Medical Center has a rich history, based on community involvement and service to children. The original Children's Memorial Hospital was founded in 1948 by Dr. C.W.M. Poynter, Dean of the University of Nebraska Medical Center and Henry Doorly, publisher of the Omaha World-Herald, with a vision that no child in need of medical care would be turned away due to an inability to pay. Today, families from across a five-state region and beyond, seek the experience and expertise of Children's Hospital & Medical Center. Children's provides care to more than 250,000 children each year. In early 2016, Children's opened a new outpatient surgery center in west Omaha to meet the growing demand for pediatric surgical services. The 10,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility includes three operating rooms (with room to build a fourth), 18 pre- and post-surgery rooms and three consultation rooms.
Children's provides a dynamic environment in which compassion and expertise combine to provide a superior patient experience. As a freestanding children's hospital and the only provider of a full complement of pediatric services in the state of Nebraska, Children's strives for continued excellence with a strong vision for the future. Children's has attained Magnet recognition three consecutive times, as part of the American Nurses Credentialing Centers (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program. This voluntary credentialing program for hospitals recognizes excellence in nursing. In May 2016, Children's once again received accreditation from the Joint Commission, affirming the hospital's high level of quality care and continued perseverance to be a High Reliability Organization.
The Specialty Pediatric Center at Children's Hospital & Medical Center opened to patients in September 2010. It is the largest outpatient specialty center in the region, dedicated to meeting the unique needs of pediatric patients. At five stories tall and 135,000 square feet, the Specialty Pediatric Center is home to more than 50 pediatric-focused clinics that schedule more than 94,000 patient visits each year.
Children's provides for the healthcare needs of children throughout the region, with outreach clinics in Columbus, Grand Island, Hastings, Kearney, Norfolk and North Platte, Nebraska; Sioux City and Atlantic, Iowa; and Sioux Falls and Rapid City, South Dakota. They also have a free-standing specialty pediatric clinic in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Children's Home Healthcare has provided in-home services since 1984, working cooperatively with medical providers in the region to provide pediatric equipment and medical supplies, home health nursing, pharmaceutical services, respiratory therapy, private-duty services, custom rehabilitation, nutrition therapy and other patient services. Children's Home Healthcare is Joint Commission accredited and Medicare/Medicaid certified.
Children's serves as a pediatric inpatient training site for medical school and residency programs at the UNMC and Creighton University School of Medicine, as well as for many of the region's nursing and health profession schools. Physicians affiliated with Children's are actively encouraged and supported in performing basic and applied research. The Pediatric Institutional Review Board has approved more than 200 research projects/clinical trials and physician faculty members receive administrative support for these projects from the Pediatric Research Office housed at Children’s.

Hubbard Center for Children
Children’s Hospital & Medical Center is poised to embark on a new era of dramatic transformation and significant growth that will change — and save — countless young lives into the future. Since its founding in 1948 in the midst of the polio epidemic, Children’s has been on the leading edge of pediatric care in Omaha and across the region. This has led to steady, significant growth in the number of patients served and the variety of programs and services we provide. Each year, Children’s touches the lives of more than 150,000 children.
Growth projections also make it abundantly clear that Children’s must grow both in scope and space to continue to meet the needs of children and families. This is why Children’s is building the Hubbard Center for Children, a cutting-edge expansion that will elevate Children’s campus at 84th & Dodge Streets and accelerate efforts to build one of the nation’s leading epicenters of pediatric healthcare. The center is expected to open in 2021 and will have nine floors with 460,000 square feet of new and renovated space.
The Hubbard Center for Children will be home to an expanded Newborn Intensive Care Unit, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Care Center and much more. It will be built between the hospital and the Specialty Pediatric Center, creating a third structure along West Dodge Road that will integrate architecturally with the existing buildings. The buildings will connect so that staff and patients will be able to move conveniently through all three spaces. New construction also will include a parking garage to meet the growing parking needs for patient families and staff.
