About The Project

Transforming care for the kids of our region

No family ever plans to come to Dayton Children’s. Especially when they hear the words cancer, you can’t take your baby home, or your child has been in an accident. Families entrust their children to us in the most critical moments. We need to continue to be that great children’s hospital close to home that all children deserve and if we are going to do that we need to update our facilities.

Hope. Possibility. Promise.

A Legacy of Caring

Nearly 50 years ago, local community leader Elsie Talbott Mead became convinced that children needed a hospital of their own. It was this fundamental belief that drove her to rally community support for the construction of what is now Dayton Children’s Hospital. Today, that tradition of community support and belief in creating a hospital that’s just right for kids continue to guide us as we look to the future of pediatric care in the Dayton region.

The hospital’s main campus has grown and expanded over the years. But the time has come for us to renew our campus, to create care spaces that reflect our commitment to this community and to caring for patients’ complex medical needs. The patient tower is the centerpiece of this campus renewal. It will allow us to transform care and advance our role as a leader in improving the health of children in our region for generations to come.

Because every child deserves a great children’s hospital close to home

A new, eight-story patient tower is taking shape in the heart of Dayton Children’s Hospital’s main campus. When it opens in 2017, this building will transform the way we care for the children of our region. You can help us reach new heights in patient care when you become part of this exciting project!
