Greenberg, who is also the lead physician executive for master planning of this new facility, said the progress on the renovation of the facility, which has taken about nine months, has gone well and the health network is on time with its progress. Located in a wooded setting, the 12,990-square-foot, single-story building previously was home to a private medical practice.
When asked if Cincinnati Children’s will continue to expand into the Dayton region, Greenberg said, “We would consider any future opportunities on a case-by-case basis.”
The medical building will offer a range of specialized pediatric care, anchored by gastroenterology, neurology, preventive cardiology, urology, genetics, pediatric surgery clinics and outpatient laboratory services, plus ear, nose and throat, and the Center for Better Health and Nutrition.
The Center for Better Health and Nutrition is the obesity prevention program of the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s, the mission of which is to address the health concerns of overweight and obese children and teens through comprehensive, family-based treatment.
Cincinnati Children’s will offer its preventative cardiology program, which is also part of the Heart Institute, at its Centerville location. This program helps identify risks of future heart disease in children, particularly if factors of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or obesity run in their family.
Dayton Children’s has more than 20 locations in the Dayton region, offering similar care.
Cincinnati Children’s has previously said that hiring has begun for several jobs created by the opening of Cincinnati Children’s Centerville. In addition, medical center specialists will be based there or rotate in to see patients.
