UNMC's PM&R department has partnered with the new Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital-Omaha Campus which is located in the Village Pointe area. The new 260,000-square-foot-building will serve as the home base for the new physical medicine and rehabilitation program for UNMC/Nebraska Medicine. The new building is divided into three major areas:
- An acute rehabilitation hospital;
- A rehabilitation specialty hospital; and
- A children's rehabilitation hospital.
Other highlights include a main therapy gym, a warm water pool, and a chapel. The building also will include Independence Square, a simulated community for patients to practice and re-learn daily independent living skills such as driving, laundry and grocery shopping.
