The Grandview Foundation has secured $1.25 million to renovate and expand the Cassano Health Center. The federal funding is part of the recently passed 2022 Labor/Health and Human Services budget bill. Congressman Mike Turner included this request as one of his top 10 priorities for the Dayton region.
The $1.25 million in funding will support the $4 million project to:
- Add seven exam rooms, increasing our capacity to care for patients by 25%
- Offer more in-office procedures and specialty care
- Provide behavioral health specialists and telehealth
- Upgrade imaging equipment
- Offer more education and support to the community
- Completely renovate the facility
“We are grateful to Congressman Turner for his efforts in Washington to advocate for the Dayton region,” said Richard Manchur, president of Kettering Health Dayton. “And specifically to invest in the Cassano Health Center so we can continue to care for those in need. The renovation and expansion are essential as we continue guiding patients to their best health.”
The Grandview Foundation committed to funding $2.5 million of the project through fundraising.
“This is a massive win for Ohio. These funds will create job growth in the community, support Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB), and improve our healthcare facilities,” said Congressman Mike Turner. “Specifically, it will bring needed funds to the Salem Mall in Trotwood for renovations, to the childcare center at WPAFB, and the Cassano Health Care Center.”
Cassano Health Center was one of Congressman Turner’s first projects when he became a congressman in 2003. The center currently offers primary and specialty care, lab and imaging, and pharmacy. It is also home to Kettering Health Dayton’s osteopathic family medicine residency.
