BLOOMINGTON – IU Health Bloomington broke ground on a new emergency medical services (EMS) headquarters on Friday, June 4.
Brian Shockney, IU Health South Central Region president, was joined by members of the IU Health EMS team, design and construction partners, and other members of the IU Health community to celebrate this step towards making Indiana one of the healthiest states in the nation.
“We are excited to begin this construction of our new EMS headquarters, which further strengthens our emergency response network – providing excellent care and service not just to Monroe County, but many communities we serve in this region,” said Shockney.
Construction on the 19,300-square-foot facility, led by Pepper Construction Company, begins this month and is set to be complete in December 2021.
The new facility will be located near the IU Health Bloomington Administrative Office Building near the intersection of Curry Pike and State Road 46. With easy access to Interstate 69, the building is designed specifically for this team and the important work they do in providing emergency care to individuals in need in the local and surrounding communities.
