Grandview Hospital was founded in 1926 by doctors Heber Dill, William Gravett and Frank Dilatush to practice osteopathic medicine.

The original location was a two-story home on West Second Street in Dayton called the Miami Clinic. It was later renamed the Dayton Osteopathic Hospital.
Having outgrown its space after two decades, a new 65-bed hospital on Grand Avenue was opened in 1947.
The new hospital was the first in Dayton to have a “room in” plan. Newborn babies were able to stay in the room with their mothers instead of a nursery.
In 2013, Grandview Medical Center dedicated a $40 million, 70,000-square-foot, five-story patient tower and West Wing expansion. A new main entrance, access to same-day surgery, new pre- and post- operative units, a kitchen that accommodates room service, a dining room, and two additional floors to house private patient rooms were also part of the work.
Grandview Medical Center is one of the largest osteopathic community teaching hospitals in the United States.
Kettering Health Network, parent company of Grandview, announced in February that it will spend $25 million to expand the hospital and double the size of its emergency department to accommodate the expected influx of patients from Good Samaritan Hospital, which is closing at the end of 2018.
