City records: Kettering Health Network aims to build new site next year

Kettering Health Network plans to break ground on a new facility in West Carrollton next year, city records show.

The regional network announced in 2017 its intent to build a medical office building as part of a three-way deal with the city and the Montgomery County Landbank program.

KHN is planning to build on nearly 4 acres at 744 E. Dixie Drive, the former home of Sonny’s Auto Spa, which the city demolished in 2017, according to West Carrollton records.

No timetable has been established for the project, but “Kettering Health Network will construct a new health-related facility on that property in 2020,” West Carrollton Economic Development Director Michael Lucking said.

It is unclear how large the building will be or how many people it will employ, Lucking said.

This news organization is seeking a response from KHN, which has not announced specific plans for the site.

The land is among several parcels totaling more than 20 acres in a one-mile strip of East Dixie Drive that the city has demolished in recent years.

The city is looking to redevelopment the Dixie/Central Avenue corridor along with the Great Miami River near Interstate 75 with the vision of turning it into a multi-million dollar entertainment district.
