Kettering Health Network is planning to open a medical center for adults who are 55 years and older.

The health system announced plans to open “The Years Ahead Health Center” at 6661 Clyo Road, Centerville, with services designed for baby boomers and older adults.

The health center is scheduled to open this winter.

Kettering Health acquired the former funeral home June 2017 for $1.1 million, though at the time did not share specific plans for the property.

The 22,000-square-foot facility will employ about 30 people including advanced practicing providers, certified medical assistants, nurses, imaging and lab technicians, and support staff.

“As more of our baby boomers reach retirement age, we saw an opportunity to change how we provide health care to them in a way that meets their unique and specific needs,” stated Fred Manchur, CEO of Kettering Health Network.

Kettering Health said in a statement that the center will have “a seamless, coordinated approach to healthcare, patients will receive comprehensive, whole-person care.”

Some of the services will include primary care physicians specializing in internal medicine, outpatient lab and imaging services, health education and exercise classes and a community room for socializing and events.

Kettering Health, with $1.75 billion in revenue and 8,400 employees as of last year, has been rapidly growing and adding facilities.

The network is opening a new hospital in Troy, adding a new five-story tower in Beavercreek to Soin Medical Center and planning a $10 million central command center in Kettering.
