IUSB invests millions in renovating medical building

They won’t be complete until next fall, but multi-million dollar renovations to a facility on Indiana University South Bend’s campus are all ready underway and students are excited.

Riverside Hall is getting a complete makeover.

All 11,000 square feet of the building behind will be modernized and it’s all in an effort to elevate health education at IUSB.

Wednesday afternoon, IU President Michael McRobbie made the trip from Bloomington to South Bend for the ceremonial groundbreaking.

Construction for the project began in August, making Wednesday’s ceremony more symbolic than official.

Riverside hall will undergo a $4 million renovation.

The new home of the IU South Bend Health and Wellness Center will feature new clinical space, labs, radiology equipment, and even a pharmacy.

“As a nursing student I’m excited for all the opportunities that will be available for all the health science students, we have a lot of things that will be changing and hopefully well have easier clinical and a nice short walk to the new facility and its gonna be a nice learning environment for all the science students,” said IUSB student Kimberly Vegh.
