John Weimer, vice president of emergency and trauma services for Kettering Health, said this summer that the facility could grow to 40,000 square feet and employ 300 when fully functional.

“As Kettering Health Network continues to grow, we have created additional access points to our health care services. We want our patients to receive the best care in the most efficient manner possible,” Fred Manchur, CEO of Kettering Health, told the Dayton Daily News this summer.
Other improvements are underway. In July, a $675,000 project entered its final phase to install landscaping and signage at the business park.
Assistant City Manager Steve Bergstresser said the next and final phase of improvements includes new landscaping, clay pavers, lighted posts, benches and other hardscape features around the roundabout within the main entrance on Forrer Boulevard.
There will also be landscape mounds along Forrer between Wilmington Pike and the roundabout, a new marquee sign and wayfinding signs.
Mayor Don Patterson said the improvements will serve the business community that uses the park well.
“Continued reinvestment in the Kettering Business Park is critical to support the growing number of employers that call the business park home,” he said.
