Columbus (Neb.) Community Hospital celebrated the grand opening of a new $56 million fieldhouse and community recreation center, bringing fitness and wellness together under one roof to benefit the health of the entire community.
Built next to the hospital’s existing health and wellness center, the new 260,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility offers sports and recreation, wellness, rehabilitative services, and specialized sports performance services.
Known as “The House,” the fieldhouse includes a full indoor soccer and football field with synthetic turf, and a suspended running and walking track, which is one of the longest suspended tracks in the country. To enhance community wellness and support competitive sports, The House also includes a two-court gymnasium, eight pickle ball courts, tennis courts, racquetball courts, batting cages, locker rooms, and a physical therapy suite. Numerous community amenities provide opportunities for everyone. They include multi-support simulators, an 8,000 square foot trampoline park, an e-sports area, and an indoor realistic mini golf course.
