Premier Health has plans to grow its reach in several Dayton area suburbs, offering additional health care services at five different locations.
The company announced Thursday it will start building a new $12 million emergency center near Austin Landing in Miamisburg next week and has plans to open four urgent care locations in Englewood, Miamisburg, Springboro and Vandalia.
The freestanding emergency center, called Miami Valley Hospital Austin Boulevard Emergency Center, will be located west of Interstate 75 near the Motoman Robotics plant. It is expected to open in September 2018 and will offer 24-hour emergency care.
The new facility will include 11 emergency beds, including two trauma bays. It will be staffed by board-certified emergency medicine physicians from Miami Valley Hospital, the location of Dayton’s only Level I Trauma Center, according to Premier.
The emergency center will have imaging technology including CT scans and X-ray, lab services, and CareFlight Air and Mobile Services transportation for patients who need hospitalization. It will also link to Premier Health’s TeleStroke Network, a patient-focused technology that connects stroke specialists via computer to providers at the point of care, according to Premier.
“We are looking forward to serving Miamisburg and surrounding communities with high quality emergency care and access to the region’s only Level I trauma center at Miami Valley Hospital,” said Mary Boosalis, president and CEO, Premier Health. “The optimal health of those in our community is at the center of everything we do, and we remain committed to providing access to emergency and preventive care to patients when they need it, where they need it.”
Skanska has been named the general contractor for the project.
Premier Physician Network, which is operated by Premier Health, has started construction on four urgent care locations as part of the company’s strategy to bring more access points to patients.
Patients will be able to register for an appointment time online and wait at their home up until the time of their appointment. Walk-in appointments will also be available, the company said.
Ferguson Construction was named the contractor for the urgent cares, which will cost between $250,000 to $300,000 to build out, the company said.
The four urgent cares will be located at 1130 S. Main St. in Englewood, 8 Prestige Plaza in Miamisburg, 752 N. Main St. in Springboro and 6700 Commerce Center Drive in Butler Twp. in the Miller Lane area. The locations will operate Monday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Each Premier Health Urgent Care will be staffed by local, certified advanced practice providers.
Premier Health is the largest private employer in the region that operates four hospitals, a network of primary and specialty care practices, and a home health service.
