Samaritan Behavioral Health Concludes Operations On OneFifteen Campus

Premier Pulse     August 2023

Esposito-BethBy Beth Esposito, president, Samaritan Behavioral Health, Inc.

As part of an innovative collaboration to help people living with opioid addiction, OneFifteen entered the Dayton market in 2019. Premier Health and other community partners made a multi-year commitment to support the start-up of the nonprofit organization and its campus in Dayton’s Carillon neighborhood, with Samaritan Behavioral Health Inc. (SBHI) serving as OneFifteen’s operating partner and providing clinical care, including behavioral health services. That community support, in turn, enabled OneFifteen to fund the increased operations at SBHI.

Having reached the next phase, Premier Health and SBHI have mutually agreed with OneFifteen that SBHI will wind down operations on the OneFifteen campus. Beginning next year, OneFifteen will operate the campus as an independent provider. While SBHI will no longer serve as OneFifteen’s operating partner, it will continue to offer outpatient services in the community. As a result:

  • OneFifteen Living - The 58-bed low-intensity residential unit, which was the first of its kind in Ohio, will remain open and operated in partnership with Recovery Innovations International.
  • OneFifteen/SBHI Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) - The unit will continue to operate 24/7 until September 22, 2023, at which time the hours will be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. On December 1, 2023, the CSU will close temporarily.  OneFifteen will begin similar operations in 2024.
  • OneFifteen/SBHI Inpatient Residential - The inpatient residential services will temporarily close on September 23, 2023, and new patients will no longer be accepted as of August 25, 2023. OneFifteen will begin operations in 2024. During the interim, prospective patients will be referred to other residential providers in the community.
  • Outpatient Services - SBHI will continue to operate outpatient services at OneFifteen’s campus until December 31, 2023. In January, SBHI will move its outpatient services to 601 S. Edwin C. Moses Blvd. in Dayton. OneFifteen will begin its own outpatient operations in 2024.
  • Recovery and Affordable Housing - OneFifteen will continue to develop recovery and affordable housing options in the Carillon neighborhood in partnership with the City of Dayton and the Carillon Civic Council.

Premier Health and SBHI will continue to provide quality inpatient and outpatient behavioral health and substance use disorder services to the community, including in areas near the OneFifteen campus. If you have a patient in need of these services, please contact (937) 734-4310(937) 734-4310 or (937) 734-4311(937) 734-4311.

In addition, OneFifteen is committed to this community and has indicated that it plans to resume providing residential, crisis stabilization, and outpatient services on its campus in 2024.

As part of this transition, SBHI and Premier Health are evaluating the placement of affected employees in similar positions elsewhere within SBHI or the health system. Staff who provided services in OneFifteen’s Outpatient Clinic will be able to continue in those roles at SBHI.

Premier Health also will remain an engaged behavioral health community partner in many ways. The health system is active on the Greater Dayton Area Hospital Association’s Behavioral Health Task Force and participates in the Ohio Hospital Association’s Behavioral Health Council. SBHI, which has served the community for 55 years and is certified in both behavioral health and addiction services, also supports seven local school districts by providing mental health treatment and prevention services.
