Good Samaritan Hospital (closed in 2018) Maternity and Gynecology Services to Move to Miami Valley Hospital

Premier Pulse     March 2018

As we take steps toward closing Good Samaritan Hospital’s Philadelphia Drive campus later this year, the first major service line to move to Miami Valley Hospital will be maternity and gynecology.

As part of this transfer, gynecological procedures will transfer from Good Samaritan Hospital to Miami Valley Hospital on April 9. April 12 is the last day when all deliveries – including scheduled inductions and C-sections – will occur at Good Samaritan Hospital’s Family Birthing Center. Mothers and babies can continue to receive postpartum care at the Family Birthing Center until April 15.

As part of this transition, Miami Valley Hospital has reopened its “Berry 1” unit to accommodate additional patients. Patients will also have a choice to deliver at Miami Valley Hospital South. We are also pleased to let you know that all employees on the labor and delivery unit at Good Samaritan Hospital who indicated a desire to transfer to another Premier Health hospital have been successfully placed in new positions across our system.

As the pace of the operational transition picks up over the next several months, we invite you to check in regularly by visiting our Good Samaritan Hospital transition page. This page will be updated frequently as various Good Samaritan Hospital units relocate elsewhere.

As of now, there are no changes to the existing locations for OB/GYN practice offices – only where future deliveries and procedures are performed. Premier Physician Network's Lifestages Centers for Women will continue to operate from their existing practice locations. Our CenteringPregnancy® program, Mothers Empowered, will also remain open at the Good Samaritan Hospital and Good Samaritan North Health Center (Miami Valley Hospital North as of July 23, 2018) locations. Five Rivers Family Health will remain at their location at 2261 Philadelphia Drive in Dayton.

Any future changes that happen with respect to specific OB/GYN offices will be communicated at that time.

We ask that everyone go out of their way to put into practice one of our core values – compassion – over the next several months. Please know that we are working as quickly as possible to finalize additional transition dates.
