Kettering Health Grows Business, Expands Mission

Story by Fred Manchur

Despite the challenges we’ve faced in 2020, Kettering Health in Ohio has continued to grow these past five years. As we’ve added new facilities and expanded our community reach, we’ve continued to emphasize recruiting Seventh-day Adventist employees to ensure that our mission stays at the forefront of all we do.

This growth has had its effects—our churches and school are bursting at the seams. At the Kettering (Ohio) church, we recently completed a new children’s wing that will be the ideal setting for our little ones to learn about Jesus. In addition, the enrollment at Spring Valley Academy in Centerville, Ohio, continues to climb—we have nearly 500 students enrolled for the upcoming school year.

We also partnered with Spring Valley Academy to help transport children from the Hispanic churches as well as refugee children to the school. Our summer extern and intern program of nurses and business students from our Adventist universities and colleges also create a desire for those externs and interns to come back and seek employment within our organization once they graduate.

Fred Manchur serves as CEO of Kettering Health.
