It took years of planning, construction, dedication, effort, and heart to make the new IU Health Bloomington happen. On Wednesday, May 4, IU Health South Central Region leaders, elected officials, Chamber representatives, Indiana University officials, and IU Health team members celebrated the years of hard work with a ribbon-cutting ceremony inaugurating the new hospital. While their move to the new facility on Sunday, Dec. 5, went without a hitch, a rise in COVID-19 numbers in the community kept teams from safely celebrating at the time.
On May 4th they celebrated this HUGE accomplishment and everyone who helps deliver on their promise to their patients every day!
Congratulations, to LIFEDesigns on your new community garden sponsored by Tri-Kappa Bloomington. This grant was funded to help build a community garden for the neighborhood of Housing Options off Covey Ln. in Bloomington. Housing Options is a low-income housing neighborhood owned and operated by LIFEDesigns near the YMCA in Bloomington, IN. Area residents will be able to use the garden to work on their gardening skills and promote a sense of community.
Health & Business
On Wednesday, May 4th, 2022, The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce held it's annual Health & Business at the Indiana University Regional Academic Health Center in partnership with IU Health. With five industry leaders presenting top notch knowledge, a question and answer panel, and hospital tours, this Health & Business was unlike any other. With the help of our sponsors, IU Health, Bloomington Health Foundation, IU Health Plans, Bill C. Brown Associates, and Building Associates, Inc., the program featured Brian Shockney (South Central Region President, IU Health), Andrew Espejo (Catalent), Dr. Tashera Perry (IU Health), Chris Liggett (IU Health), and Penny Caudill (Monroe County Health Department). See photos below from the event.
On Friday, April 30, 2022, the Chamber's Young Professionals Bloomington group had a networking event at Lennie's for Buddies & Brews. We were able to share about Young Professionals Bloomington and what the group can offer our community and Chamber members.
