(BLOOMINGTON) - IU Health Bloomington Hospital along with Indiana University will build a new hospital on the current site of the IU golf driving range on 75 acres just off the SR 45/46 bypass adjacent to the IU Technology Park.

Along with a hospital, IU Plans on building an academic building. The buildings will be next to each other, giving students easy access to the facility as well as doctors. IU expects the additions to attract more students.

The driving range on the IU Golf Course will move to the current par-3 course adjacent to the driving range. The 18-hole championship course on the site will not be affected by the changes.

IU has not yet put a price tag on the project. They are working with Bloomington Hospital on finalizing a contract before breaking ground.

Construction should begin this year and be completed by 2020.

The Primary care office located at 1302 South Rogers St. and the ambulance garage and crew quarters at 517 W.
First St. will not be relocated.

Once the new hospital is built, Bloomington Hospital will close down its 2nd Street facility.

The Hospital Reutilization Steering Committee lead by former state Senator Vi Simpson, will work to determine the future use of the IU Health Bloomington Hospital's facility.

Simpson says a consultant with experience in hospital redesign will be hired to better equipped the task force shape the focus moving forward. It is unclear who will pay for the consultant's services.
