History

As the newest member of the Alegent Health System, Lakeside Hospital is truly unique in its concept and design. The only full-service hospital for the 150,000 households living in West Omaha, Lakeside Hospital opened its doors in August, 2004 as a 45-bed acute care facility. Lakeside Hospital is located at 168th & West Center Road and sits on just over 38 acres, featuring a 68,000 square foot Wellness Center and two medical office buildings.

Lakeside Hospital is dubbed one of the world’s most technologically integrated hospitals in the world today and Alegent Health’s 10-year alliance with Siemens Medical Solutions makes it possible to implement innovative technologies, which integrate medical advances, diagnostic services and information systems. Lakeside Hospital is considered a "smart hospital" which includes all wireless technology, a filmless/paperless environment and all-digital diagnostic center. Other features include minimally invasive surgical suites and bedside registration.

Lakeside Hospital also prides itself on being a patient-centered hospital, where bedside care and family involvement are the hospital staff’s top priorities. It is modeled after the Planetree (SM) model, which creates patient-centered care in a healing environment and recognizes the importance of architecture and interior design in the healing process. The hospital resembles a home-like environment, which is evident from the waiting room fireplaces to smell of freshly baked cookies on every floor. A healing garden and the use of natural light and live plants throughout the hospital provide the added calming effect both outside and inside the hospital.
