Falls City Community Medical Center

On November 23, 2009, the Community Medical Center, In Falls City, Nebraska, opened its doors. Centered on patient care, the 69,000 SF Critical Access Hospital boasts single-occupancy patient rooms and two labor-delivery-postpartum-recovery (LDRP) suites. A state-of-the-art surgical center, 16 slice CT scanner and a spacious physical therapy department are among the enhancements patients find at Community Medical Center.

This replacement hospital has 24 private in-patient rooms; two labor and delivery rooms; an emergency department with two trauma rooms and three exam rooms; a surgery center with two operating rooms, two post anesthesia care units and six pre-operating rooms; a radiology department; a specialty clinic with ten exam rooms, two procedure rooms, an x-ray room; a family medicine clinic; and a full kitchen and food service. The facility has a 750KW back-up generator.

The patient wing was built to grow with the hospital and allow for future expansion projects. During construction, our project management team became concerned after viewing the initial drawings of the project’s sanitary sewer lines.  The current design would not allow for all patient rooms to be in operation during future expansion construction. At an initial progress meeting with the owner and design team, we addressed this concern and suggested the sanitary lines be extended in order to prevent campus disruptions. Together, it was decided to make this addition to the plumbing scope of work in the early stages versus losing revenue in subsequent construction phases.

Sampson broke ground in May of 2016 on a 23,000 SF expansion and renovation. This project included 9,000 SF of clinic space, 2,800 SF of surgical/sterile supply space, 1,400 SF of imaging space and 10,000 SF of renovation for surgical and business occupancy space.
