Elizabeth Bacon, DO, has recently joined the pediatric pulmonology department at The Children’s Medical Center of Dayton. She previously practiced pulmonary medicine in Des Moines, Iowa at Blank Children’s Hospital.

The addition of Dr. Bacon will increase the availability of new patient and follow up appointments in the department of pediatric pulmonology as well as increase the availability of pediatric pulmonologist to answer questions from referring physicians.
