NexCore Breaks Ground for CHI Health Replacement Clinic in Council Bluffs

Denver-based NexCore Group, a national healthcare real estate developer, broke ground March 19 for the new CHI Health Valley View Clinic in Council Bluffs.

The clinic, being developed at 1480 Valley View Drive near the Mall of the Bluffs retail area, is designed to provide the convenience of a one-stop outpatient experience. With a total size of 37,800 square feet, it will also more than quadruple the amount of space in an existing 9,000-square-foot facility on Madison Avenue, which it will replace. It will be the 46th such facility in what is already the largest clinical network in the Omaha-Council Bluffs area.

The CHI Health Valley View Clinic will provide a variety of healthcare services under one roof, including primary care, behavioral health, women’s services, radiology, ultrasound, pharmacy and physical therapy providers. It will have 54 exam rooms and is expected to open in May 2019.

From an economic development perspective, it is anticipated that the clinic will provide a $10.4 million annual economic benefit to the area. During development, it will support 83 jobs in the construction industry and an additional 35 ancillary jobs in the community, such as real estate, retail and restaurants. After opening, the facility will account for 45 clinical jobs and will help support an additional 28 workers in the community, delivering a payroll income boost of about $3.6 million, as well as increased household and business-to-business spending.
