Hubbard Center for Children

A Powerful Opportunity for Growth

Children’s Hospital & Medical Center is poised to embark on a new era of significant growth that will change — and save — countless young lives into the future.

Since its founding in 1948 in the midst of the polio epidemic, Children’s has been on the leading edge of pediatric care in Omaha and across the region. This has led to steady, significant growth in the number of patients served and the variety of programs and services we provide. Each year, Children’s touches the lives of more than 150,000 children.

Growth projections also make it abundantly clear that Children’s must grow — in scope and space — to continue to meet the needs of children and families. The demand for high-quality pediatric care is great and we must expand our role as the region’s pediatric healthcare leader.

This is why we are building the Hubbard Center for Children, a cutting edge expansion that will elevate Children’s campus at 84th & Dodge Streets and accelerate efforts to build one of the nation’s leading epicenters of pediatric healthcare.

About The Hubbard Center For Children

The Hubbard Center for Children will be home to an expanded Newborn Intensive Care Unit, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Care Center, and much more. It will be built between the hospital and the Specialty Pediatric Center, creating a third structure along West Dodge Road that will integrate architecturally with the existing buildings.

The buildings will connect so that staff and patients will be able to move conveniently through all three spaces. New construction also will include a parking garage to meet the growing parking needs for patient families and staff.

The Hubbard Center for Children is just the latest milestone in the life of Children’s — a timeline that includes the 1948 founding, the move west in 1981 and the opening of the free-standing hospital in 2000.

The region’s children will have access to the most advanced care delivered by the most talented health care professionals – without having to leave the area even for the most complex care.

Join Our Team

Cardiac Care Unit (CCU)

A floor exclusively dedicated to caring for the full spectrum of pediatric heart patients means that a child will remain on one floor for their entire hospital stay.

Cardiac Care


Children and teens diagnosed with cancers and blood disorders will have their own floor. This improves infection control for immunocompromised patients and allows children to get out of their rooms as much as possible.

Cancer Care

Neonatal Intensive Care

Expanding to 52 rooms and doubling the current square footage, the new NICU will expand access to care. Rooms will be larger and more comfortable to improve the experience for patients and their families.
