When construction started this week on a new five-story tower at Soin Medical Center, it joined millions in health care construction now underway in the region.
Here’s some of the latest projects local health networks have under development.
1. Soin Medical Center expansion
The Indu and Raj Soin Medical Center kicked off the construction of a $70 million five-story tower, which will add 170,000 square feet to the Beavercreek hospital.
Soin, part of Kettering Health Network, will house surgical services, cardiac services, private inpatient rooms and unused space that leaves room for more expansion. Construction is expected to be completed the summer of 2020.
2. Four new Premier Health medical hubs
Premier is spending about $25 million on new physician hubs in Vandalia, Beavercreek, Monroe and Liberty Twp.
The Liberty Twp. office will have have a ribbon cutting Nov. 7 and Monroe will have a ribbon cutting Dec. 6. The planned 45,000-square-foot offices in Vandalia and Beavercreek, each estimated as $9 million projects, have yet to start construction.
3. Mercy Health medical campus in Enon
Mercy Health Springfield will develop a new medical campus in Enon late next year in a $14 million project that will start with the construction of a freestanding emergency department. The new emergency department will open in late 2019.
4. New Troy hospital
Kettering Health is planning to open a new hospital in Troy mid-2019. The plans for the 600 W. Main St. hospital have grown since first proposed in 2017 and the health network received approval to add 30,000 square feet to the building than originally proposed. The expansion will include three stories of unused space that will give the hospital the flexibility to expand if needed
5. Dayton Children’s Troy medical office
Dayton Children’s Hospital is planning an outpatient office in Troy in a building it will share with Edison Community College. When the plans were announced in May, the pediatric hospital was aiming to open the new 10,000-square-foot office by the end of this year. The office will bring smaller practices under one roof and about 15 to 20 new positions will be added.
