Bryan Health Unveils 5055 Building for Outpatient Surgeries, Physician Offices
Bryan Health in January unveiled the newly constructed 5055 Building, an outpatient surgery center and medical office building at Bryan East Campus.
“This beautiful, new building will offer excellent care for patients in our region for decades to come,” said John Woodrich, president and chief operating officer at Bryan Medical Center. “This was a project that hit close to home, with local government, physicians, contractors and designers bringing this building to life.”
Twenty years ago, the city of Lincoln recommended that future growth at Bryan East Campus occur northeast of Bryan Medical Center. Over the past two decades, Bryan purchased 35 properties on a two-square-block area to accommodate expansion. Construction on the 5055 Building officially began in the summer of 2016. The $25 million dollar building covers 100,000 square feet and is four stories tall.
The first floor of the 5055 Building is home to the Doctors Outpatient Surgery Center. The facility is a joint venture between Bryan Health and 76 area physicians. The space features 17,000 square feet and six surgical suites with room for future expansion. General and specialty surgeries will be performed, including orthopedics, gynecology, podiatry, plastics and dental. Projections show that 5,000 surgeries will be performed in the first year.
“We’ve seen the future of health care trending to an outpatient setting, where patients come in for a procedure and go home the same day,” Woodrich said. “It’s exciting to be able to provide a cost-effective surgery option while still providing the highest quality of care.”
The upper floors of the 5055 Building are home to physician offices. A dedicated parking lot will make parking convenient for patients and their families. A skywalk also connects the building to Bryan Medical Plaza to accommodate access for physicians.
In January, representatives from the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, Bryan Health and Doctors Outpatient Surgery Center held a ribbon cutting to celebrate the new facility. The surgery center is scheduled to open to the public in late March or early April.
