Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital has selected DLR Group and Michael Graves & Associates to design a $93 million facility in Omaha, Nebraska. The 110-bed, 250,000-sq.-ft. hospital will offer a full continuum of inpatient care.
Michael Graves, Contract magazine’s 2013 Legend, will use his personal experience with rehabilitative care in developing the design. “After my paralysis, I spent several months in other rehabilitation hospitals learning how to live successfully with my new normal,” he explained in a statement. “With that perspective of the patient and the architect, I’m so pleased that we now have the opportunity to design a facility that is equal to the astounding care provided by Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital.”
Construction on the project will begin this year with a target completion date of 2016.
