Our Facility

Gothenburg Health is a premier critical access hospital and rural health clinic focused on 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 31 million-dollar renovation and expansion that started with a state-of-the-art surgical expansion. The newest multi-phase construction project, completed in the spring of 2018, includes a surgical suite, brand-new patient wing, prominent main entry, clinical expansion for in-house providers and visiting specialists, advanced imaging suite with in-house MRI, and finally, a medically integrated YMCA. We are proud to not only offer the basics, but to also provide a vast variety of progressive services that have grown with the needs of our community.

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 features a 4-lane pool, high-school regulation gymnasium, second-floor walking track, cardio and weightlifting area, plus a large group fitness room. This innovative facility opened 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 hospitals and want to ensure a strong and healthy long-term future.
