This past February, physicians, staff, and Kettering Health Network leaders celebrated the fifth anniversary of Soin Medical Center. And although the hospital has been serving the community for only a short time, residents find it hard to remember when Soin wasn’t there.
“In just five short years, Soin has grown to become a vital part of the community,” said Rick Dodds, president of Soin Medical Center and Greene Memorial Hospital. “We are incredibly grateful to Raj and Indu Soin for their leadership and generosity that helped make this facility a reality, and we are blessed to have best-in-class employees and physicians who serve our community.”
Growing to meet the needs of the community
Beavercreek, Fairborn, Riverside, and communities beyond have come to love and appreciate having the quality healthcare that Soin Medical Center provides, so close to home.
“Soin has been continually growing to meet the needs of the communities we serve and to ensure that we are here to help when they need us,” said Dodds.
Since opening its doors in 2012, Soin has become a Level III Trauma Center and Primary Stroke Center, expanded the Emergency Department and added 69 patient beds. The hospital also offers several specialty care centers serving the northeastern Dayton region, including an interventional cath lab and a hernia center of excellence.
In July it becomes a teaching hospital, with the addition of a primary care residency program. “Addressing the shortage of primary care physicians across the nation, we will ultimately see 36 residents in our Family Practice Center who will help us establish a legacy for Kettering Health Network in Greene County,” said Dodds.
Soin also serves as a regional center for Kettering Cancer Care and continues to grow their services for cancer patients. Soin recently began an expansion of their Infusion Center and construction of a Radiation Therapy Center. Both are possible thanks to a $3.5 million investment by the Greene Medical Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing high-quality health care and improving the lives of Greene County residents and communities. Prior to this gift, Greene Medical Foundation invested almost $1.5 million in Soin’s facilities and programs.
“We intend Soin Medical Center to be a good neighbor and friend to all the communities we serve,” said Jeff Brock, president of the Greene Medical Foundation. “The scope of Soin’s influence is really all about the staff -- the passion they have to offer great care and simply serve when needed. They are truly the ‘care’ in our healthcare, and I think the community sees and feels that.”
Brock says that, over the last five years, Soin has served about 200,000 people through its emergency department and roughly 350,000 through the inpatient and outpatient facilities. In addition, since the opening of Soin, local fire departments have experienced significant fuel and time savings that have benefited their operational budgets.
“Very few have the opportunity to help open a new hospital and set the story from the beginning,” said Brock. “It’s pretty humbling to see the influence Soin has shown in five short years -- it has become an anchor of hope and beacon of care.”
A free, celebratory concert
