Explore The Building
The new patient tower includes spaces that are just right for kids, with a fun theme of “taking flight” that allows their imagination to soar! It’s a theme that is uniquely Dayton, and lets kids take to the skies with a biplane, hum with the hummingbirds and wish upon a shooting star. When kids walk into the new patient tower, they’ll know that this is their hospital–a place that they can feel safe, cared for and loved.
