IU Health Reveals Art Selections for New Regional Academic Health Center

(BLOOMINGTON) – The public is invited to join IU Health for an artists’ reception this evening when the artwork for the “Shades of Southern Indiana” project is revealed.

Eight originals from local artists were selected for strategic placement in the new IU Health Regional Academic Health Center on the campus of Indiana University.

The event is from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at the FAR Center for Contemporary Arts, at 202 South Rogers Street in Bloomington.

The 735,000 square-foot complex is home to Indiana University Health Bloomington inpatient and outpatient services as well as a 115,000 square-foot academic facility that is used for health sciences education and research at Indiana University.

The new state-of-the-art facility brings together multiple medical specialties and outpatient services in one convenient setting. It will also provides a unique and innovation-driven environment in which IU and IU Health can partner to teach future generations of health care professionals.

The 620,000-square-foot, five-floor medical facility will improve the patient experience, including greater patient privacy through the use of patient transport areas not visible to the general public. The outpatient portion will include a comprehensive cancer center, specialty physician offices, surgical suites, a minor-procedure area and a diagnostic center.
