Insurance Health On Wednesday~, Cassano Health Centre conducted an open house and a ribbon-cutting ceremony. In order to better support the healthcare needs of the underprivileged in the neighborhood, the building has undergone renovations that will increase access for new patients.
A new teaching pod, seven more patient rooms, a location for on-site behavioral health services, and telehealth psychiatric care are all included in the rebuilt structure. One of the clinics run by Kettering Health Network in West Dayton has undergone a $4 million makeover and expansion. A new teaching pod, a room for behavioral health therapy, and a facility for telemedicine psychiatric care are now available at the Kettering Health Cassano Health Centre. Additionally, it features modern medical hardware and technology.
On Edwin C. Moses Boulevard, the facility opened in 2003 and now sees more than 14,000 patients annually. It provides a range of treatments, including internal medicine, neurology, and the care of chronic illnesses. According to Dr. James Schoen, the head of medical education and programme director for the family medicine residency at Kettering Health, the rise in patient volume indicated that it was time for an upgrade. “We noticed that we got to a point where some of the days of the week, we just didn’t have the space we needed to provide the care we wanted to provide,” said Schoen. Therefore, throughout the refurbishment, we were able to add seven more exam rooms, which is a 25% increase over the amount we had before.
The Grandview Foundation provided funding for the project. The building is distinctive, according to Dr James Schoen, Director of Medical Education at Kettering Health Dayton, because of the variety of clinics it houses. The amount of clinics that are provided at this hospital, according to Dr. Schoen, is one of its distinctive features. “Under one roof, we offer general surgery, orthopaedic surgery, hand surgery, nephrology, internal medicine, and family medicine. As a result, it offers our patients the chance to obtain complete medical care in a single location. The new building is open five days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is situated on Edwin C. Moses Boulevard across the river from Sinclair College.
