Kettering Adventist HealthCare Expands North

Story by Christina Keresoma

Kettering Adventist HealthCare has opened a new hospital in Troy, Ohio, just north of Dayton. A record number of network employees and local community members attended the ribbon cutting, and you could feel the electricity of excitement in the air. The new hospital features 29 medical-surgical beds, cardiac testing, and surgical services in addition to a full-service, 24/7 Emergency Department with 12 beds. The hospital also includes office spaces for primary care visits and other specialized health services.

The community has welcomed and embraced Kettering Adventist HealthCare so much that the original size of the hospital was increased to meet the needs in the area. The land that the hospital was built on was once the home of the Hobart manufacturing plant that built electrical apparatuses, including motors, electrical welders, and battery chargers in the early 1920’s. The Hobarts sold the land to make way for the hospital
and have been very supportive of having a faith-based, mission-driven hospital. Michael Beamish, mayor of Troy, thanked the network and local leadership for bringing high-quality care into his community.
