Welcome to Bloomington Pediatrics

About Us

Our History



The origins of this office date back to 1979. Dr. James Zimmerman opened his pediatrics practice that year at The Health Center located at 702 N. East St. in Bloomington. Following two years of rapid practice growth and very hard work, a friend and colleague from his residency program joined him, Dr. John Bandy. When they outgrew their original facilities, they built a new clinic which opened its doors in 1987.


As the community grew, so did the need for pediatric care providers. To meet these needs, we continued to add qualified, dedicated physicians. As the practice evolved, we needed a larger location that could accommodate our growing patient population.  We moved to our current facility in 2003, which has allowed us to provide an exceptional medical home to our patients.


The story of Bloomington Pediatrics LTD. is hardly limited to the physicians and the buildings. We have been blessed with outstanding individuals serving with dedication and talent in all areas of our operation. This has been coupled with remarkable longevity of employment among staff and nurses as well as the providers. The physicians cannot adequately express the gratitude that they feel toward those who have chosen to join with them in their efforts to improve the lives of children in our community. It is indeed a team effort requiring the best from all of us.
