Soin Medical Center will add a five-story, 170-000 square-foot tower to the hospital.
The new tower will accommodate more surgical services, cardiac services, private inpatient rooms and shelled space to allow for further expansion. Construction on the $70 million project is scheduled to begin this fall and is expected to be completed by the summer of 2020. Danis Building Construction has been awarded the project.
This is one of many expansion projects since Soin Medical Center opened in 2012. In 2013 the hospital completed the fourth floor to meet a rise in medical surgical services. In 2015 the Emergency Department was to accommodate increased patient demand, and in 2016 the fifth floor was completed to add more patient rooms and therapy space. In the fall of 2017, Kettering Cancer Care opened an expanded infusion center and clinical exam rooms, doubling the accommodation for chemotherapy patients.
On May 3, 2018, a ribbon-cutting ceremony took place for the radiation therapy center. The 8,300-square-foot radiation therapy center includes a linear accelerator for radiation therapy, as well as a CT simulator and scanner to support the addition of an on-site radiation oncology team.
“From the beginning, Soin Medical Center was built with the future in mind,” says Fred Manchur, CEO of Kettering Health Network. “As demand for our services continues to grow in Greene County, these expanded services allow us to provide comprehensive, advanced care to residents close to where they live.”
