Good Sam announces it’s closing before September

Good Samaritan Hospital will close before Aug. 29.

Premier Health, which operates the northwest Dayton hospital, announced in January that Good Samaritan would close before the end of the year and today gave a tighter time frame for the closure.

“While we had initially communicated a closing toward the end of the year, we did say that some dynamics could result in a different closure date, due to the unpredictability and complexity that understandably comes with such transitions,” Premier stated.

Premier said it will give an exact date in the coming months.

When the Philadelphia Drive hospital closes down, it will move 1,600 jobs out of the northwest Dayton neighborhood where it has served as an anchor for nearly a century.

The main campus will be torn down after the hospital closes. City Wide Development and Planning NEXT, a design firm based in Columbus, are working with Premier on a plan for the site and the first public meetings on the site’s future are today.
