IU Health Bloomington prepares for December 5 with a mock move

BLOOMINGTON – On Thursday, Oct. 28, IU Health Bloomington will be running a mock move from the existing hospital on Second Street to the new hospital just off the bypass. This is a practice move in preparation for the actual move on Sunday, Dec. 5, and is scheduled to start at 7:30 am and conclude at approximately 11 am.

During the mock move, ambulances and a shuttle bus will transport volunteers acting as patients from the existing hospital to the new hospital by taking Second Street to Third Street, then Atwater Avenue to Third Street, and onto the Bypass to Discovery Parkway. The ambulances will return to the legacy hospital via Third Street.

This simulation is one more step towards opening the doors to the new IU Health Bloomington and the future of healthcare in this community.
