Bed Transition at Miami Valley Hospital South

Premier Pulse     May 2022

In recent decades, Miami Valley Hospital South has experienced tremendous growth in many health services, including orthopedic and spine, oncology, and cardiology services, as well as emergency and trauma care. The Centerville campus has continued to expand in part due to a growing demand for inpatient beds.

To respond to this community need, we will be repurposing beds at Miami Valley Hospital South that are currently used for obstetrics. As a result of this transition, the last day of deliveries on campus will be June 30, 2022, with the obstetrics unit slated to cease operations no later than July 8 to minimize the need for transfers to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton or another hospital. We will resume use of these beds in mid-July for medical and/or surgical care.

This change does not affect Premier Physician Network obstetrics offices on the Miami Valley Hospital South campus.

Premier Health remains committed to providing high-quality care for mothers and babies across our region. Miami Valley Hospital’s main campus, for example, is home to the region’s first high-risk maternity and Level III neonatal intensive care unit in the same facility. It remains a trusted name throughout the region in delivering babies while providing moms and families with peace of mind. We are working hard to ensure a seamless transition, both for maternity patients who had originally planned to deliver at MVHS and for providers.

We will be guaranteeing positions for all employees in affected positions. Employees will have the opportunity to move into similar roles with the same shifts elsewhere in Premier Health.

We are grateful for the growth that we continue to see across our health system, for the many years of great obstetrics care provided at Miami Valley Hospital South, and for the many teams who are working tirelessly to position our services so that we can continue to fulfill our mission in the best way possible.
