“Our mission compels us to provide high-quality health care – as close to home as possible – for those we serve,” said Fred Manchur, CEO of Kettering Health Network. “For many years, we have served the residents of Springfield and Clark County at various hospitals and clinics throughout our network. Now is the right time to invest in Springfield more intentionally by bringing services that enhance wellness and serve residents in their time of need.”

The 42,000-square-foot facility will feature a 24/7 emergency room, outpatient services including lab and imaging, as well as medical offices for primary care and specialty services, the network said.

About 50 full-time jobs will be available at the new location and the cost to build it is about $20 million.

Kettering Health already has some existing services in Springfield, including a primary care office on Middle Urbana Road and a health center on Emmanuel Way.
