"I really think this is probably the initiation of the renaissance of West Broadway," Council Bluffs Mayor Matt Walsh said Thursday at a ribbon cutting at the new Alegent Creighton Clinic at 3135 W. Broadway.
Ground was broken April 3, 2013, for construction of the 28,000-square-foot building on property that was between two grain elevators when work began. Both elevators have since been demolished, and the new clinic has given that section of West Broadway a dramatically different look.
"This is a spectacular facility that is truly designed to improve care," said Dr. Cliff Robertson, president and CEO of Alegent Creighton Health, during the ribbon-cutting ceremony in the spacious atrium that serves as the building’s lobby and waiting area.

"We believe this is the next step for Alegent Creighton Clinic for providing health care not only for Council Bluffs but for the entire area," said Dr. Rick Rolston, president and CEO of Alegent Creighton Clinic. "It is a beautiful facility, but it is only walls and chairs."
