IU Health is proud to announce that the new IU Health Bloomington at the Indiana University Academic Health Center will open its doors on Dec. 5.

“I can’t say enough about the teams who have made this happen,” said IU Health South Central Region President Brian Shockney. “Even with the challenges brought forward by the pandemic, we’ve persevered because we know this building will have a positive impact on our community.”

With valet parking, a LEED Silver Certified designation, and all private patient rooms, the new IU Health Bloomington is another step forward in providing healthcare to Monroe and the surrounding counties.

The new IU Health Bloomington at the Indiana University Regional Academic Health Center “was designed not just for today, but for the next 100 years,” said Shockney. “Our teams put a lot of research into what makes a hospital have both a healing environment while providing top-of-the-line clinical care.”

The private rooms have been built with special material to help reduce noise from the hallways and nearby rooms. And the team has integrated an adaptive acuity model of care that brings care to the patient, reducing the need to move patients around the hospital for different services.

“With 622,000 square feet and 364 patient beds, IU Health Bloomington is actually a bit larger than our current facility,” said Shockney. “But even with the new walls, the same team is here to give expert care to our friends, family, and neighbors.”
