Premier Health plans $12M emergency care center

Dayton, Ohio-based Premier Health is building a $12 million freestanding emergency care center in Miamisburg, Ohio, according to a Dayton Daily News report.

The center will offer 24-hour emergency care and house 11 emergency beds, including two trauma bays. The facility will be staffed by board-certified emergency medicine physicians from Dayton's Miami Valley Hospital, the region's only Level I trauma center.

Premier Health operates five hospitals, six emergency centers and a network of primary and specialty care practices throughout southwestern Ohio.

The facility will have CT scans, X-ray, lab services and CareFlight Air and Mobile Services patient transportation. The center will also connect to Premier Health's TeleStroke Network, a patient-focused technology that allows providers to contact stroke specialists through computers at the point of care.

The center is expected to open in September 2018.
