IUSB to break ground for future Health Sciences home
Indiana University South Bend is about break ground for renovations to the future home of health classes and health care for students, faculty, and residents of the community.
The renovations will be on Riverside Hall and the groundbreaking will happen Wednesday at 2 p.m.
The president of the university, Michael McRobbie, will preside over the ceremony, marking the start of the $4 million renovation project.
According to university, the project will refurbish and modernize more than 11,000 square feet and add new plumbing, electrical and data systems, and a new security system.
After the renovations are complete, there will be updated clinical spaces, laboratories, radiology equipment, a pharmacy, and new classrooms.
Riverside Hall will be home to the IUSB Health and Wellness Center and enhanced health sciences programs in the fall of 2017.
IUSB says $1 million for the project was a gift from five different entities including HealthLinc, a federally qualified health care center.
