At Dayton Children's we are pleased to offer our distinctive community rounds program.  This program was designed to give key community leaders, including our legislators, a deeper look into the unique qualities of a very rare and vital community asset – The Children’s Medical Center of Dayton.

During the visit, participants have an opportunity to “round” with our physicians as they meet with patients and perform procedures. This experience is much more than a tour of the hospital. Participants have the opportunity to shadow our staff to better understand why Dayton Children’s is such a special place.

At the closing of our community rounds program, participants have the opportunity to ask further questions and give us their observations and feedback about the experience. As an organization focused on quality-improvement, we greatly appreciate their sincere thoughts and comments.

On Tuesday, September 28, State Representatives Roland Winburn and Clayton Luckie participated in our community rounds program.  While our beautifully designed units, kid-sized equipment and safety protocols were important, they were most impressed (as they shared with us during the debrief) by our amazing staff and the truly family-centered care given at Dayton Children's.

On Friday, October 8, State Senator Chris Widener was joined by Charlie Foley, our Board of Trustees President and Melissa Bacon from the Ohio Children's Hospital Association and participated in our community rounds program. These participants were amazed at how well our staff collaborates together and with other children's hospitals across the country to deliver exceptional health care to children.

As one of only 50 free-standing children’s hospitals in the country, Dayton Children’s thanks Representatives Winburn and Luckie for joining with us to be a voice for children – particularly the 275,000 local children we serve each year. We hope the insights gained through the community rounds program will be valuable when making important decisions affecting the future of children in our region.
