Building Project at Miami Valley Hospital South Reaches Half Way Point
Officials to Celebrate with a Topping Out Ceremony
(Dayton, OH) June 29, 2011 – Miami Valley Hospital South will celebrate a Topping Out for its new five-story bed expansion on Wednesday, June 29 at 10 a.m. The ceremony marks the halfway point of construction project which broke ground last November.
During the ceremony the final steel beam signed by employees and guests will be set into place following remarks by Bobbie Gerhart, CEO of Miami Valley Hospital and Mark Kingseed, Mayor of Centerville.
The new addition is being constructed on the south side of the building, with three floors to be initially occupied. Two floors, each with 24 beds, will be designated for orthopedic and medical surgical care. A third floor will have 16 beds for obstetrical care. The two remaining floors will be shell space, and will accommodate 48 more rooms in the future.
The project adds 200,000 square feet of new space to the hospital.
Miami Valley Hospital South opened in October 2007 as an outpatient facility. Three years later a 10-bed “short-stay” inpatient unit was added.
The hospital is located along Wilmington Pike near Clyo Road.
