Omaha’s Medical Center

Omaha – 42nd & Leavenworth

Fifty years ago Charlie Graham Buick had a successful car dealership on the northwest corner of 42nd and Leavenworth Street in what is now mid-town Omaha.  The dealership outgrew this location, but kept the site for its body and paint shop.  Doctor’s Hospital, NU Med School and Clarkson Hospital were two blocks north.

As time went on, the area grew into the epicenter of Midwest medical research and health care. The Lauritzen Transplant Center now hovers over the Charlie Graham body and paint shop, and shields several other medical buildings from view.  The Buffet Cancer Center is out of the frame to the left.  The Charlie Graham property has been purchased for future med center expansion.

Maybe fifty years from now this photo will be a peek into Omaha’s past.

Thought for the Day:  How did it get so late so soon?  It’s night before it’s afternoon.  December is here before it’s June.  My goodness how the time has flewn.  How did it get late so soon?                                                                                                        Dr. Seuss
