Dayton Children’s plans to open latest Kids Express in Tipp City early next year

Center will be the sixth Kids Express in the Dayton region.

Dayton Children’s plans to open its sixth Kids Express location in Tipp City, providing families north of Dayton a care option closer to home for treating minor conditions like ear infections, colds, pink eye, rashes and more.

Expected to open in early 2025, the new 1,655-square-foot Kids Express will be located at 1176 West Main Street in Tipp City. Other Kids Express locations are located in suburbs in the wider Dayton region and southwest Ohio, including Beavercreek, Centerville, Mason, Springboro and West Chester.

“Parents continue to tell us how much they love Kids Express as an option for care when their kids are sick,” said Dr. Lisa Ziemnik, division chief of Dayton Children’s Kids Express and urgent care.

The Tipp City location will include three patient exam rooms. 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.

“As busy as families are these days, Kids Express makes it a little easier for them to get fast answers, treatment and return to health,” Ziemnik said.

It offers a retail clinic approach with online wait times and “save your spot” features combined with the pediatric expertise of a specially trained nurse practitioner, Dayton Children’s said.

While there are a lot of retail clinics for adults, Kids Express locations are specific to children and are focused on kids’ health needs.

Dayton Children’s Hospital is the region’s only pediatric Level I trauma center. Dayton Children’s is an independent, freestanding children’s hospital located in Dayton, treating more than 400,000 children each year across 20 counties in Ohio and eastern Indiana. The hospital has two campuses, Dayton and Springboro, and more than 15 care sites including facilities in Troy, Beavercreek and Kettering.
