CHI Health Clinic Breaking Ground on New Council Bluffs Clinic

March 12, 2018


We’re Growing – With One-Stop Health Care

New CHI Health Clinic Will be More Than Four Times the Current Size

A new CHI Health Clinic at Valley View and Mall Drives in Council Bluffs is not only bigger, it will provide a rotating cast of specialists – all under one roof.

In addition to primary care, patients will have access to specialists in behavioral health, women’s services, radiology, ultrasound, pharmacy and physical therapy.

The new clinic is the 46th for CHI Health, which has the largest network of clinics in the Omaha-Council Bluffs area. It replaces the current facility on Madison Avenue and will be almost 39,000 square feet, compared to the current 9,000 square feet. It will have 54 exam rooms and is expected to open in May 2019.

In addition to a bigger space, the new clinic will have a big economic impact on the metro:

  • Building the clinic will support 83 jobs in the construction industry and an additional 35 jobs in the community based on the increased economic activity.
  • The 45 clinic jobs will help support an additional 28 workers in the community (for example, real estate, retail, restaurants, etc.).
  • When fully operational the economic activity generated by the project will add about $10.4 million to the local economy every year (this includes “spillover” activity).
  • The local economy will see a payroll income boost of about $3.6 million for the clinic, additional household spending and additional business-to-business spending.

CHI Health partnered with NexCore Group, a national health care real estate developer, to create a facility that is convenient, efficient, and productive.
