Five-story tower planned for Beavercreek hospital

Indu & Raj Soin Medical Center will have a five-story, 170-000 square-foot tower added to it, Kettering Health Network said Friday.

The new tower will accommodate more surgical services, cardiac services, private inpatient rooms and shelled space to allow further expansion, the network said. Construction in the $70 million project is scheduled to start this fall and is expected to be completed by the summer of 2020. Danis Building Construction has been awarded the project.

Soin Medical Center has seen several expansions since it opened in 2012. In 2013 the hospital completed the fourth floor to meet a rise in medical surgical services, the network said. In 2015 the Emergency Department was expanded to accommodate patient demand, and in 2016 the fifth floor was completed to add more patient rooms and therapy space.

In March, the Dayton Daily News first reported the submission to the city of Beavercreek of a site plan that called for adding 75,000 square feet to the Soin campus as well as a three-story addition.

A spokeswoman for Kettering Health Network told this news organization then that there was no specific expansion plan approved by the hospital board, no project budget and no timeline.

Contractors had submitted the plan to the city.

Soin Medical Center is one of eight hospitals operated by Kettering Health Network.

“From the beginning, Soin Medical Center was built with the future in mind,” Fred Manchur, network chief executive, said in the company’s announcement. “As demand for our services continues to grow in Greene County, these expanded services allow us to provide comprehensive, advanced care to residents close to where they live.”

Also this week, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held for a 8,300-square-foot radiation therapy center at Soin.
