About

Modern medical care lives here. You can see that commitment in our state of the art surgical wing, new patient wing, construction of a medically integrated YMCA on our campus, and most importantly, in the amazing team who is Gothenburg Health.
 

Mission Statement

To provide quality, cost effective health care services and promote the wellness and quality of life in our service communities.

Our Facility

Gothenburg Health is a Critical Access Facility serving the needs of Gothenburg and the surrounding area. The existing building was built in 1969 with a 3.5 million dollar addition and renovation project completed in 2004 to provide up-to-date medical care in our service area. In 2011 a new, 3.4 million dollar, 17,000 sq ft physician clinic was completed to bring state of the art facilities to Gothenburg with the potential for growth in the medical community. In 2014 Gothenburg Health continued growing and broke ground on a 29.5 million-dollar renovation and expansion that started with a state-of-the-art surgical expansion. The new construction is in the final phase of the 3-phase project which includes a brand-new patient wing, prominent main entry, clinical expansion, advanced imaging suite and medically integrated YMCA.

The YMCA at Gothenburg Health makes Gothenburg just the 18th community in all of Nebraska to have a YMCA. The YMCA building is directly connected to the hospital and will feature a 4-lane pool, high-school regulation gymnasium, second floor walking track, cardio and weightlifting area, plus a large group fitness room. This exciting facility will be completed in April 2018.

Gothenburg Health is a non-profit healthcare facility governed by a publicly elected board of directors. Gothenburg Health believes strongly in the philosophy of investing in the future; preparing for the future with progressive technology aimed to provide our patient population with the healthcare services they deserve while protecting the future viability of our hospital. We recognize the challenges facing Critical Access Facilities and want to ensure a strong and healthy long-term future. Gothenburg Health is dedicated to its mission of providing quality, cost effective healthcare services while promoting wellness and quality of life in our service communities.
