Statement From IU Health"As announced in September, Indiana University Health is working toward the goal of realizing roughly one billion dollars in cost savings over the next five years. One way we must accomplish this, while still providing patients with the highest level of care, is to reallocate underutilized resources. Effective December 2, 2013, services at IU Health Central Indiana Cancer Centers South will be primarily relocated to nearby IU Health Methodist Medical Plaza South as well as other IU Health facilities. We are committed to helping our patients continue to receive the excellent care they have come to expect."Source: IU Health
