McCarthy Commences Cancer Center Build at U Of Nebraska-Kearney

By Eric Althoff

KEARNEY, Neb.—McCarthy Building Companies-Omaha is working on the Kearney Cancer Center at the University of Nebraska-Kearney campus. The $33 million, 53,000-square-foot building will entail two stories of outpatient medical care that includes a Linear Accelerator, infusion space as well as multiple examination rooms. Other facilities will include a “healing garden” and counseling services center.

McCarthy is working in conjunction with designer PACT Studios on the work at the University of Nebraska-Kearney. PACT is a woman-owned architecture firm primarily based in the Omaha and Denver metro areas.

“McCarthy is excited to help be a part of bringing cancer care to the community of Kearney and the broader central and western Nebraska,” Ryan Felton, vice president of operations at McCarthy, said about his firm’s work. “The new cancer treatment center is a testament to Nebraska Medicine’s commitment to providing its patients top-quality care close to home.”

The new cancer center will be sited next to the in-development University Village, which will be a mixed-use development of commercial, educational and residential facilities for the school.

The Nebraska Medicine Kearney Cancer Center is aiming for completion this December, with its first patients to come into the facility around the same time.

McCarthy employs over 7,000 people. The firm’s Midwest office locations include St. Louis, Kansas City and Omaha.
