Miami Valley South Health Center On Track in Centerville
Steel Beams Now Visible In Skyline
CENTERVILLE, Ohio (June 26) — The health care construction boom in Southwest Ohio is moving full steam ahead on the campus of Miami Valley South Health Center at I-675 and Wilmington Pike in Centerville where steel beams are being speedily erected to complete the 268,000 sq. ft. project on time for fall 2007.
Danis Construction of Dayton, selected as construction manager, estimates more than 2,000 tons of steel are expected to be fabricated by Maryville Steel Inc. of Maryville, Ohio. Sofco Erectors, Inc. of Cincinnati was hired to handle structural steel erection for the building and will need approximately 20 erectors to install the structure. Currently, there are upwards of 40 construction workers on the job site, and that figure is expected to increase to about 150 workers as the project accelerates.
“Miami Valley Hospital is proud to extend high-quality medical care to south Dayton and provide needed emergency services to a region of the Miami Valley that has long been without,” said Joann Ringer, project administrator, Miami Valley Hospital South Dayton Campus. “We look forward to serving residents in these communities next year with medical care that is close to home.”
When completed, the outpatient facility, estimated to cost $79.5 million, will house a variety of services including a 24-hour emergency center; a medical imaging center offering high-speed CT, MRI and ultrasound; a breast center; cardiac diagnostics; laboratory services; and a five-story medical office tower.
Miami Valley South Health Center will serve residents of Centerville, Washington Township, Kettering, Bellbrook and Sugarcreek Township, as well as other communities in Montgomery, Greene, Warren and Clinton counties.
