Our mission at the Grandview Foundation is to enhance osteopathic medical education. We support the needs of Kettering Health Dayton (formerly Grandview Medical Center) and Kettering Health Washington Township (formerly Southview Medical Center), improving the quality of life of the communities we serve.
Who We Are
From the beginning, our mission has been to create opportunities for those touched by the exceptional care at Kettering Health Dayton and Washington Township medical centers.
Kettering Health Dayton was founded in 1926 as Dayton Osteopathic Hospital and would later operate independently with its southern campus, Southview Medical Center (now Kettering Health Washington Township).
In 1999, the medical center merged with Kettering Health Main Campus to form Kettering Health. Since then, we have remained deeply committed to osteopathic medical education and serving our community.

Medical education is at the center of everything we do. With 12 residency programs and one fellowship, we have around 135 residents training at Kettering Health Dayton at any given time.
We support this program annually with more than $1,000,000 in grants that fund faculty development and leadership, curriculum development, and specialty care for patients at Cassano Health Center.
Wetherell Innovation & Procedural Skills Center
On the campus of Kettering Health Washington Township, this skills lab is home to a spacious and well-equipped lab that turns residents into experienced surgeons. Rehearsal space includes monitors and cameras that allow experts to remotely view and teach residents advanced techniques and needed skills.
Supported by our annual Eagle Seekers fundraiser, the lab creates opportunities for distance learning and builds the confidence of our doctors-in-training.
Rent this lab for your event.
Hospital and Patient Support
From staff to patients, we provide assistance to our medical centers through grants, funds, and scholarships. They include the following:
Our long-running charity golf event has raised millions of dollars over the years to support community healthcare initiatives. Proceeds are dedicated to a specific project within the medical center related to updating equipment, providing additional training, and improving care.
The Serenity Garden at Kettering Health Washington Township offers a place of solace for bereaved families dealing with the loss of a baby. This garden provides a treasured memorial service site and a tranquil campus retreat. Donate to the Serenity Garden.
Community Initiatives | Culinary Medicine and Gem City Market
Through a partnership with Gem City Market, we train residents and physicians in nutrition and health at the Kettering Health Community Kitchen. We fund the kitchen as a place to hold classes and serve the community.
Funds raised on Giving Tuesday will benefit our Patient and Caregiver Fund – so we can assist patients experiencing financial need, as well as support the hospital teams/caregivers who are working so hard to care for others during these challenging times.
The Greatest Need Fund allows the foundation to support the most pressing needs for people, programs, and equipment in our medical centers.
