Lodging

The Nebraska Medical Center offers lodging at the Nebraska House for families staying in Omaha. Both Nebraska House locations are on campus. In the event the Nebraska House is sold out on any particular night, we have developed relationships with several hotels in Omaha to provide quality lodging for our guests. Some of these hotels provide scheduled shuttle service to transport patients and families to and from the hospital.
