Dayton Children’s teams up to expand services and convenience in Beavercreek

bigger location offers both primary care and specialty pediatric care in one new building

Dayton Children’s Hospital makes care more convenient for families with a new outpatient care center at 1425 North Fairfield Road in Beavercreek. This center consolidates the developmental rehabilitation, lab and imaging services that are currently located in two separate spaces on Dayton-Xenia Road. More space in the new location also allows for the expansion of current offerings and the addition of sports rehabilitation services.

Dayton Children’s specialty services offered include:

  • Occupational therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • New sensory integration gym
  • New developmental therapy gym

“This new expanded space will allow us to get children in quicker when they need therapy,” says Terry Wiegel, director of rehab services at Dayton Children’s. “We are especially excited about our new dedicated sensory integration therapy room for children with autism. This new space will allow us to provide a more conducive environment for treating these kids through therapy.”

Allyson Beasley, age 5, of Xenia, has been coming to therapy at Dayton Children’s since she was a baby. “We come for appointments twice a week doing physical, occupational and speech therapy,” shares Anna Beasley, Ally’s mom. “This new space is really nice. There’s a lot more room which will be beneficial for the kids to do what they need to do and for the therapists to do what they do best. We are extremely appreciative of Ally’s therapists. Thanks to their help she has come a long way and we see a huge difference. We are looking forward to where she goes next.”

The orthopedic rehabilitation service is brand new to the Beavercreek market. The orthopedic rehab gym will offer:  

  • Age appropriate strength/flexibility equipment (including Pilates)
  • Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) – uses electrical signals to activate muscles and improve or retrain them
  • Dry needling – a technique similar to acupuncture that aims to relieve muscle pain by targeting trigger points
  • Sportsmetrics - a performance enhancing program for young athletes
  • Scolio-Pilates
  • Manual therapy
  • Dedicated pediatric physical therapy staff

“Our rehabilitation center is different than others in the area because we are completely focused on kids and teens,” says Ann Smith, director of occupational and physical therapy at Dayton Children’s Hospital. “Our therapists know the needs of a growing body and are trained to help young athletes reach their optimal health. We already have many families of young athletes who are undergoing rehab for things such as a post-operative knee surgery that are really excited to have this facility close to home.”

The location will also house Dayton Children’s pediatric-focused lab and imaging services, including a new all-digital X-ray with better quality images.  These services are available:

  • Monday – Friday, 8:30 am to 7:00 pm
  • Saturday, 8:30 am to 12:30 pm

neighbors become roommates

Nearby primary care offices are moving into the same new building. Pediatric Associates of Dayton will move about a half a mile from its current location at 3140 Dayton-Xenia Road. “We are looking forward to moving into this new space,” says David Roer, MD, pediatrician for Pediatric Associates of Dayton. “It will allow us to accommodate our patients with more space in a modern new building. Having access to services provided by Dayton Children’s Hospital is just an added bonus.”

PriMED Beavercreek Pediatrics and PriMED Family Practice will relocate less than two miles south from its current 2322 Lakeview Drive address with 10 physicians, many of them accepting new patients. “Our new Beavercreek Family Practice and Pediatrics office, co-located with Dayton Children’s, is part of PriMED’s overall ‘Office of the Future’ facilities plan to upgrade our facilities over a multi-year period to bring new technologies to our patients, to cover our expansive geographic footprint more effectively, and to make our care more cost-effective and patient-centric for our patients and health care in general,” says Ted Inman, CEO of PriMED Physicians.

Diagnosed with leukemia in 2019, Shelby Stinson, age 9, of Fairborn, visits physical therapy weekly to help with leg weakness caused from her cancer treatments. “We spend a lot of time at Dayton Children’s and this new facility is so much closer to our home, work and school,” shares Ashley Stinson, Shelby’s mom. “We are at the main campus multiple times a month so even having one appointment that is closer to home makes it so much easier for us. Plus, our primary care physician is right next door now which is great!” 

teaming up to be cost effective

The hospital and the primary care offices will lease space inside the building from Mills Development, the Beavercreek-based commercial real estate and construction company.  Mills Development constructed the 35,000 square foot building on the 12-acre site during the past 14 months.

“We’re excited to be a part of further development of our community in such a vibrant area in the heart of downtown Beavercreek,” says Jerad Barnett, president and CEO of Mills Development. “We purchased this property at the end of 2017 and, after discussions with Dayton Children’s, knew that it was the perfect spot for expansion of their services in the east market.”
