The event, that occurred from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. moved patients from their old spaces to brand new ones on the top two floors of the patient tower.

The tower, which broke ground back in 2014, was part of a $141 million campus renewal which offers many new amenities, including inpatient and outpatient care in one integrated space, improved technology, and world-class pediatric care.

“We knew we needed patient care facilities that could meet the ever-changing needs of pediatric health care in a family-friendly environment,” says Deborah Feldman, president and CEO at Dayton Children’s. “Our new patient care tower will help us deliver the very best care to children in our region well into the future.”

Patients have been moving to the new tower since July of this year.

Statehouse candidates answer voter questions in Montgomery County

Published: Monday, April 23, 2018 @ 10:48 PM

Ohio House candidates debate

Four primary election state lawmaker candidates took questions during a forum of panelists from WHIO Radio and Dayton Daily News and offered south Montgomery County voters a chance to talk with candidates in Miamisburg on Monday. 

>> Voter Guide

Three Republicans and one Democrat weighed in on key issues ahead of the May primary, according to News Center 7 Reporter Sean Cudahy.

Democrat candidate Zach Dickerson called for bipartisanship. His primary opponent, Autumn Kern, was not at the forum.

The Republican candidates discussed taxes, Medicaid and schools. All of the candidates answered questions regarding gun control.

“We’ve made their jobs difficult enough by giving them so many restrictions,” Republican candidate Sarah Clark said.

“There are smarter, better ways to make our schools safer,” Dickerson said.

“I do not believe that students should be armed...in any capacity,” Republican candidate Marcus Rech said.

>>Brooke Richardson off house arrest, but judge imposes other restrictions

“Right now, it’s up to each community and that’s how I think it should be,” State Rep. Niraj Antani, R-Miamisburg, said.

The forum was organized by the Dayton League of Women Voters who said they think it’s important for people to know where the candidates stand.

The primary election is set for May 8.
