At its current location, IU Health Bloomington Hospital has been serving Bloomington and its surrounding communities for over 100 years. With goals to improve patient care and satisfaction, increase collaboration among employees, strengthen bonds with IU Health School of Medicine, increase convenience and provide room for future growth, a new academic health campus is being created and will include a new space for IU Health Bloomington Hospital.
Working with a variety of groups, including hospital staff, partner design firms, consultants and contractors, Cripe facilitated design and function of in-patient departments of this new hospital project. Departments include Critical Care, Pediatrics, Short-Stay, Behavioral Health and Dialysis. Through input and feedback gathered, crucial areas will be implemented with best practices and methods to meet today’s demands. Patient exam rooms will be more user and family friendly. Staff support areas are designed with collaboration, efficiency and patient accessibility in mind.
