Dayton Children’s unveils new Springboro center


Dayton Children’s will unveil a new specialty care center today on its south campus in Springboro, where the hospital also plans to open a new pediatric emergency room and surgery center next year.

The 71,650-square-foot medical office building offers pediatric care in a variety of specialties, including cardiology, gastroenterology, ears, nose and throat, even sports medicine. It’s the first of three new buildings being added to the 11-acre campus as part of a $47.5 million expansion.

A 16-room pediatric emergency department will open in January next year, and an outpatient surgery center with four operating rooms is scheduled to open in August. Existing facilities for urgent care, lab and imaging services will also be updated.

The additions will create a one-stop shop for pediatric health care for residents of the suburbs between Dayton and Cincinnati, where the largest pediatric population in the region lives, according to hospital officials.

“We are listening to our patient families who consistently tell us they want more services closer to home,” said Deborah Feldman, Dayton Children’s president and CEO. “Expanding our Springboro campus provides the world-class pediatric care for children that they deserve, right in their backyard. It is all part of our Destination 2020 plan to advance our role as the leader in children’s health.”

Instead of a ribbon cutting, Feldman will introduce the new specialty care center to the public by highlighting a grand staircase with lighted steps near the main entrance. The staircase was designed to be a positive distraction for parents and their children, giving them something else to focus on to help manage the pain, fear and anxiety associated with hospital visits.

Hospital officials will also offer tours of the new facility, designed by local firm, Champlin Architecture, with Beavercreek-based Synergy Building Systems spearheading construction.

Dayton Children’s also is in the process of building a new $140 million, 260,000-square-foot, eight-story patient tower on its main campus in Dayton, which is expected to be completed in the spring of 2017.
