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.
