Construction is officially underway on the $37 million, 50,000 square foot surgical facility planned for South Sioux City's riverfront next to the Delta Hotels by Marriott.

Riverview Medical Center, which is being built by Tri-State Specialists of Sioux City, will encompass four operating rooms, eight recovery rooms, and $28 million in state-of-the-art medical equipment, according to Lee Hilka, CEO of Tri-State Specialists.

Uniquely, patients will have the option to recover at the Delta Hotels by Marriott under doctor and nurse supervision, if they so choose.

Mark Samples, developer for Riverview Surgical Center, said that it was a team effort to get to groundbreaking day.

“The exciting part starts now,” he added

Dan Curran, Director of Business Development with Nebraska's Department of Economic Development, praised local city and businesses leaders on their work with the project.

“Your partnership up here is as good as any I've seen in Nebraska,” he said. “What a great investment in your community. This is going to have a lot of paybacks beyond healthcare and the people who use this facility.”

South Sioux City mayor Rod Koch spoke to the economic impact of becoming a medical destination.

“We cannot be more happy here in South Sioux to have this,” Koch said. “I think it's going to bring more people to the area and we're all going to benefit.”

The project is anticipated to see completion in one year.
