— Local NAACP and church leaders said they are encouraged by “assurances” by Premier Health in the wake of the planned closing of Good Samaritan Hospital.
A community forum on the issue set for Feb. 10 at Mt. Zion Baptist Church is one reason for that encouragement, said Dayton NAACP President Derrick Foward.
The community must “find a pathway forward,” said Corey Cunningham, founder and senior pastor of The Inspiration Church on Philadephia Drive.
Foward and Cunningham expressed those concerns this morning at a news conference three days after officials from Premier Health - the hospital’s parent company - announced the closing of the hospital that has been a northwest Dayton anchor for nearly a century.
Premier CEO Mary Boosalis said Wednesday Good Samaritan Hospital will close its doors by the end of the year and move 1,600 jobs out of the northeast Dayton neighborhood, where it been located on Philadelphia Drive since the late 1920s.
Boosalis called the closing a “most difficult but necessary decision.” It was one that shocked many in the community and Dayton City Manager Shelley Dickstein said “we are gravely concerned about an exit of that anchoring presence.”

Harrison Twp. — UPDATE @ 3:40 a.m: All lanes on southbound I-75 have reopened following a crash early Wednesday morning.
UPDATE @ 3:03 a.m: After nearly two hours, the driver of a vehicle that went off the road on southbound I-75 has been extricated from the vehicle.
The interstate has been shut down for over an hour between Needmore Road and Wagner Ford Road.
The extrication of the driver took hours because a guard rail went into the door of the vehicle.
Per initial reports, the individual will be transported by Careflight to Miami Valley Hospital.
We will continue to monitor when the highway reopens.
UPDATE @ 2:09 a.m: One person is still trapped inside of their vehicle after it went off the road on southbound I-75 Wednesday morning, according to Ohio Highway State Patrol, Dayton Post.
Harrison Twp. emergency crews are working to extricate the driver from the vehicle in order to be transported to Miami Valley Hospital via Careflight. Though he is trapped, he appears in stable condition, according to officials.
The single-vehicle crash was reported around 1:20 a.m. and due to the entrapment, Careflight was requested to the scene, shutting the interstate down between Needmore Road and Wagner Ford Road exits.
I-75 has been shut down for about 45 minutes and officials believe it should reopen in the next 30 minutes once Careflight lifts off the ground.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
UPDATE @ 1:50 a.m: Soutbound I-75 between the Needmore Road and Wagner Ford Road exits is shut down after a crash occurred early Wednesday morning.
Careflight has been requested to a crash with reports of entrapment on southbound I-75 near the Needmore Road exit early Wednesday morning.
The incident was dispatched around 1:20 a.m., per initial reports.
The Needmore Road exit ramp is currently closed and with Careflight on their way to the scene, this will likely shut the highway down.
