Midwest Medical Transport has announced it will be moving into a new location in Neligh soon.
Julie Tschirren, who manages the Neligh fleet, said the company plans to move intothe soon-to-be-built Mill Pointe Plaza, which will be located along Highway 275 where Helmer's Furniture and Neligh Lockers once stood.
State Farm Insurance will also be located in the four-unit building. The other two units are currently available for lease.
"We're really looking forward to our new location and having everything under one roof," Tschirren said. "We'll have our ambulances and sleeping quarters all in the same location."
Currently, Midwest Medical has two leased locations in Neligh - one is for the ambulances and the other is a house for employees. Tschirren said the new location will have a bay for both ambulances as well as living quarters for employees, including two bedrooms.
The unit will be about 1,300 square feet and have a wash bay for the ambulances, as well as a kitchen and office in the living quarters.
Tschirren said the company had been looking at locations for some time, and the new complex being built by Craig and Melissa Smith fits their needs very well.
"This will be a great location for Midwest Medical Transport, and we're very appreciative of Craig and Melissa for not only designing their building to accommodate our needs but for investing in this community as well," Tschirren said. "This is a great addition to Neligh, and we're proud to have our name associated with the project."
Tschirren said the doors from the ambulance bay will be on the south end and will not affect the public parking lot. They will remain accessible at all times without limiting public parking.
Midwest Medical Transport plans to move into the new location toward the end of 2015.
