DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton Children’s is asking the community for help in order to transform children’s health in the Miami Valley.
The hospital plans to do that by revitalizing a portion of the hospital’s North Dayton campus.
The revitalization project is currently underway–but they need your help. Their goal is to raise $25 million dollars.
They already reached a total of $21 million from big donors. But, they’re hoping the community can help with the $4 million they still need.
“The out pouring from the community has been amazing,” President and CEO of Dayton Children’s Hospital Deborah Feldman said. “When we sit down and we talk with potential donors or people in the community what they say is they want to be true to those that came before them. They recognize that it was an amazing feet for Dayton to have it’s own children’s hospital and they want to make sure that we continue to have that in the future to come.”
They first broke ground on the 260,000 square foot patient tower in August 2014. They say the new tower will improve care by providing a newly designed intensive care unit, life-saving technology and an optimal healing environment.
