Nebraska Medicine continues to expand its primary care clinic locations in the Omaha metro area, today announcing plans for the newest location in the Old Millard area’s lumberyard district.
The newest facility will be located on the site of the former Millard Roadhouse building at 13325 Millard Ave., which will be demolished by Boldt Construction. The restaurant building had been vacant for nearly two years. Nebraska Medicine and Boldt considered refurbishing all or part of the building but found that it required significant work to make it safe for health care. The refurbishing cost far outweighed the cost of building a new clinic.
The Old Millard location is the sixth new primary care clinic Nebraska Medicine has opened in the last four years. Aside from our Old Market location, all are architecturally identical, designed to provide an extraordinary experience for patients. The other recently opened health centers are Brentwood, Chalco, Elkhorn and Fontenelle.
“Nebraska Medicine wants to continue to provide serious medicine and extraordinary care in convenient locations,” said Tom Macy, VP of operations at Nebraska Medicine. “We are eager to play a part in the continued redevelopment of the Old Millard district. The health center will be an excellent complement to other recent residential construction in this area, which continues to experience a rebirth.”
All of our health care centers follow a patient-centered medical home model of care. “This is a team-based approach to care,” says Andrew Vasey, MD, physician leader for the Primary Care Clinical Program. “A primary care team consisting of primary care doctors, social workers, nurses, behavioral health specialists, pharmacists and nutritionists work in partnership with patients and family members to provide quality medical care for acute illnesses, chronic disease management and preventive health.”
“As primary care providers, our goal is to keep you healthy through regular health maintenance and prevention,” says Dr. Vasey. “If you do become ill and need to see a specialist, we will be able to navigate the system and get you to the right provider.”
The current building at this location is scheduled to be demolished in the next couple of weeks. Construction of the new facility is expected to be finished this fall.
