Jonathan Barada will be stepping down as President and CEO of the Bloomington Health Foundation (BHF) this fall. He has been with the local non-profit for nearly eight years.
Barada joined Bloomington Health Foundation, then-named Bloomington Hospital Foundation, in 2013. During his tenure, he led several successful endeavors for the organization, including fundraising efforts to expand the Hospice House, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and Trauma Departments at IU Health Bloomington Hospital, hosting a record-setting 20th anniversary of Hoosiers Outrun Cancer benefiting local cancer patients, partnering to fund the Stride Crisis Diversion Center for those experiencing substance use disorder, and overseeing $3M in grant support to benefit the health of the greater Bloomington community since 2018. Most recently, in partnership with the Community Justice & Mediation Center, BHF received a $675,000 national grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to help our community build a stronger engagement infrastructure, so that marginalized and underserved communities can be heard in healthcare policymaking decisions.

Mayor John Hamilton has asked Miah Michaelsen, Deputy Director of the Indiana Arts Commission, and Valerie Peña, Assistant Vice President/Chief of Staff for the Office of Government Relations & Economic Engagement at Indiana University, to co-chair the Waldron Recommendation Committee, an advisory group that will evaluate and provide recommendations for the future use of the building currently known as the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center.
In May, the City and Ivy Tech Community College announced that ownership of the circa-1915 building that had once served as Bloomington’s City Hall would revert from Ivy Tech to the City. The City will work with the co-chairs to assemble a diverse committee of residents, including a city council member, to consider the building’s potential long-term uses and issue recommendations over the coming months. The City invites residents to nominate themselves or others for service on the committee by contacting Director of Public Engagement Mary Catherine Carmichael at firstname.lastname@example.org or 812-349-3406.
