Indiana University breaks ground on new health center in Bloomington


The Indiana University has broken ground on the new IU Health Regional Academic Health Center at its campus in Bloomington.

Expected to be completed in 2020, the more than 700,000-square-foot complex will serve Bloomington and the surrounding region. It will include a cancer center, surgical services, a women’s center, neonatal intensive care, physician offices and a trauma center.

In addition, the project includes the new 115,000-square-foot IU Academic Health Sciences Building.

“The new state-of-the-art facility will bring together multiple medical specialties and outpatient services into one convenient setting. It will also provide a unique and innovation-driven environment in which IU and IU Health can partner to teach future generations of health care professionals,” the university said in a statement.

Work is underway to prep the site, and moving earth will begin in the next few weeks.
