Nebraska Medicine – Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Neb., will begin construction on its emergency department to accommodate more patient volume.

The project will add seven private exam rooms, extra workstations for physicians and nurses, and minor upgrades to eight current critical care ED rooms. Existing office areas, the ED staff lounge and conference room will all be removed to make space for the new improvements.

Construction is expected to be completed in late May or early June 2017.
