Grand Island development to include hospital, hotel, office

Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News

The first phase of a 96-acre development in Grand Island will include a 64-bed hospital, a hotel with conference space and a three-story medical office building.

Work is slated to begin on the project located at the intersection Highway 281 and Highway 34 this fall.

The full-service hospital will be the anchor tenant for the development.

Chief Industries, a construction company in Grand Island, and HDR, an architectural, engineering and consulting firm based in Omaha, announced the development this week.

A consortium of 60 local doctors, part of Grand Island Hospital Holding, retained the development firms for the project earlier this year.

The scope of the project, such as total square footage and size and type of procedure rooms, are being determined.
