Why are we building a new patient care tower?

Our strategic road map, Destination 2020 calls for us to advance our role as a leader in children’s health. In September 2013, the Dayton Children's Board of Trustees approved a plan to help us achieve this vision.

The plan is the campus renewal project, which includes building a 260,000-square-foot, eight-story patient care tower and central utility plant and data center to be completed in 2017.

The new building will be located in the center of the campus to efficiently use our space. While the design and plans are not set, the new space will accommodate the latest research findings for cancer care, the infrastructure for delivering state-of-the-art care for critically-ill newborns, individual rooms, better family spaces and improved access to services. The estimated cost of the construction and renovations is approximately $140 million with philanthropy playing a vital role in making the plan possible.

In this section, you will find information about our long-range facility and campus renewal plan, which is designed to enable us to provide the best care to our region's children for generations to come.
