NEW DETAILS: Beavercreek weighs proposal for 3-story addition to hospital

Beavercreek is considering approving a site plan for Soin Medical Center that calls for a three-story addition, but the hospital said there’s no budget for a project yet and the early vision for an expansion could change.

Contractors are seeking approval for a modified site plan that calls for expanding the Indu & Raj Soin Medical Center, one of eight hospitals operated by Kettering Health Network.

Elizabeth Long, spokeswoman for Kettering Health Network, said Tuesday morning that at this time there is no specific expansion plan approved by the hospital board, no project budget and no timeline for any changes.

The site plan that was submitted called for adding 75,000 square feet to its campus for a new surgery wing to the hospital, which opened in 2012.

The Beavercreek planning commission will consider the proposal at its 6 p.m. Wednesday meeting.

Sandra Pereira, Beavercreek associate city planner, said when the hospital was first built, officials had anticipated the expansion in their original plans, so the city only needs to approve some minor modifications to the original plans.

After the project gets approval from the planning commission, the hospital can decide to file building permits for project.

Kettering Health already has millions in construction already underway around the Miami Valley. In Troy, the health network is building a $60 million hospital in Troy, a $30 million medical center in Middletown, and a $25 million expansion in Dayton.
