To the four presidents, Matt, Brian and Lisa, and the board, Rick, Bruce, Joyce, Jerry, Scott ,Brad ,Susan, Marla, Marcos, Chris, Julie and Ginny.

Last Meeting

We welcomed John Glenn to our Friday meeting last week. Mr. Glenn is the Vice President of Development for Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital. Ground was broken last week for this new facility at 175th and Burke Streets. Every CEO from each of the hospitals in Omaha were in attendance, as well as Mayor Stothert. The new hospital will start out with 110 beds and will serve adults and children who have severe brain and spinal injuries, require ventilator management, due to serious pulmonary conditions and those who have had a severe stroke. It should be completed by October 1, 2016 (if Nebraska winters are "normal"). Currently, Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital has 32 rooms at the Bellevue Medical Center on the 4th floor. This facility opened in April of 2014. On it very first day, it was full by 1:00 p.m., with a growing waiting list. Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital is an exciting addition to our community. Mr. Glenn gave many details of the wonderful work they do and the progress of neuroplasticity (look it up!) since the 1880's.
