Miamisburg City Council is slated tonight during its regularly scheduled meeting to hold a first reading for rezoning of the site, which is on the perimeter of Southpointe Business Park. The property is zoned for both research-office and light industrial use, but not hospital use. However, “such use follows the development pattern that has been observed around the Sycamore Campus of the Kettering Health Network,” according to the memo.
An example of that is the ongoing construction of the CareSpring facility across Ohio 725 from the hospital, the memo said.
Following tonight’s first reading, plans for the site will be referred to the Planning Commission for it to review and make its recommendation to city council within 60 days. City council is then required to hold a public hearing on the item before it votes on whether or not to rezone the property.
Headquartered near Harrisburg, Penn., the PAM chain provides post-acute health care services through more than 40 long-term acute care hospitals and medical rehabilitation hospitals, as well as 18 outpatient physical therapy locations in 12 states.
It already operates PAM Specialty Hospital of Dayton, which is part of Kettering Health Network’s Sycamore Medical Center campus in Miamisburg. A Kettering Health Network spokesman previously told this news outlet the network was not part of the project, which was announced in August as coming to the Dayton area, but did not specify a site at that time.
