Dayton Children’s announces new Kids Express location will open in Centerville this fall

Dayton Children’s Hospital is excited to announce a new Kids Express location will open in Centerville this fall. This will be the fifth of these unique pediatric healthcare locations in the region joining Kids Express Beavercreek, Mason, Springboro and West Chester.  

The new 2,400 square-foot Kids Express will be located at 6044 Wilmington Pike, Dayton, Ohio 45459. It will include five patient exam rooms, including one dedicated to telehealth.  

Kids Express is a quick pediatric health care center for minor conditions like colds, flu, pink eye, ear infections and rashes when a child’s pediatrician isn't available.

Kids Express combines the convenience of a retail clinic approach and online scheduling with the pediatric expertise of a specially trained nurse practitioner. While there are a lot of retail clinics for adults, Kids Express is the only option in Ohio with care that is just right for kids and focused on their unique needs. 

“We know that parents have come to love Kids Express as an option for care when their kids are sick,” says Lisa Ziemnik, MD, division chief of Dayton Children’s Kids Express and urgent care. “We are excited to expand this offering to the families in the Centerville region and beyond!”  

family testimonials

Those who are new to Kids Express can learn more about what to expect simply by reading the hundreds of reviews of the four current locations on Google.  

“I would highly recommend Kids Express to friends and family,” says Krista in a recent Google review of the Springboro location. “The location is very clean, easily accessible and convenient while being as quick as can be. The staff is where this place really shines! They are professional, kind, attentive, knowledgeable, caring medical professionals. They really make the trips as enjoyable as possible for everyone despite the circumstances. Thank you, Kids Express. You are a vital addition to our community!” 

“I have been to this location twice and have been SO impressed each time,” says Ashley in a recent Google review of the Mason location. “Everyone we’ve interacted with has been knowledgeable and friendly. The experience is relatively quick, and it’s affordable. While we were waiting for pcr tests to be done, both times they gave my kids fun packs to occupy them. My child and I both feel heard and they are attentive and competent. So grateful to have this option, especially since it feels like my kiddos always get sick outside of my pediatrician’s operating hours. So grateful we have this so close!”  

“This place truly is amazing,” says Jessica in a recent Google review of the Beavercreek location” Each time we have visited for an illness they are so friendly and helpful. They are all so good with the kids. Scout is so awesome! Thank you so much for doing such a great job.
