The Indiana University Regional Academic Health Center in Bloomington includes the IU Bloomington Health Sciences Building as well as the new IU Health Bloomington. Announced in 2015, construction started on the project in 2018 following a groundbreaking ceremony that January.
Over the past four years, the site has transformed into a health care campus that serves not only as a space for teaching, learning and research, but also for hospital and trauma care for Indiana's south-central region.
