BLOOMINGTON – Cohesion and efficiency are essential for emergency medical responses. They are also integral to the design of the new IU Health LifeLine Bloomington Headquarters.
Located on the Northwest side of town at 2995 N Lintel Drive, the facility opened in early April to much anticipation from the emergency medical service (EMS) team. This new EMS hub, along with the new downtown response station, was made possible due to a nearly $10M investment by IU Health to improve EMS services in south-central Indiana.
Kelly Mullis, MBA, RN, EMT-P, CRTT, is the IU Health South Central Region LifeLine Director said, “The new IU Health LifeLine Bloomington Headquarters was designed specifically for our team. The site encourages cohesive and efficient operations and will help us deliver the emergency care our patients need and deserve.”
The 19,273 square-feet building includes:
- A 4,356 square-feet maintenance bay,
- A 6,134 square-feet vehicle bay,
- And an 8,783 square-feet office area.
Mullis said the building brings several ambulances, specialized equipment and vehicles, educational and administrative teams, and the regional fleet maintenance garage together under one roof.
Running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the facility will support the nearly 200 team members throughout their 11-county region.
Cory Hall, IU Health LifeLine Executive Director, said, “The IU Health LifeLine Bloomington Headquarters is a central hub for our south-central region emergency response teams. The intentional design for this facility’s location and infrastructure empowers the team to better care for our patients both in the field and during interfacility transport.”
He explained that the cohesive structure of the team, along with quick access to I69 and State Road 46, makes this team better poised to execute quick responses during emergencies.
