DAYTON — Premier Health officials have told this news organization that they want to "transform" the soon-to-be former main campus of Good Samaritan Hospital once the facility closes at the end of the year.
They don't know exactly what redevelopment will look like on the site once the buildings are razed, but they say it's a process they will be here to see through.
"Unlike other Dayton-based employers who closed a business and walked away from Dayton, Premier Health will be working with others to explore the possibilities of redevelopment," President and CEO Mary Kay Boosalis said Wednesday during the news conference at which she announced the hospital’s closing.
The city of Dayton plans to hold Boosalis to her words as the leadership will push them to redevelop the site.
"They shouldn't just sell the site off,” Mayor Nan Whaley said. “They should stay with the site and make sure that is truly developed for the community to benefit from that. They should have community input in the redevelopment and they have to put significant dollars into that."
Premier has hired Columbus-based Planning Next and Dayton-based Citywide Development Corp. to help re-purpose the site, officials said. The firms will team up to help plan, design and transform the site “for decades to come,” Boosalis said.
The goal is for the site to be shovel-ready after the hospital closes at the end of this year and the buildings are torn down. However, demolition dates have not been announced.

— A seemingly innocent quiz that has been sweeping social media could help scammers get their hands on your personal data, experts say.
"What's your royal wedding guest name?" the meme, which began circulating ahead of Saturday's royal wedding, asks.
One version reads as follows:
"In honor of the royal wedding, use your 'royal wedding guest name' this week. Start with either 'Lord' or 'Lady' – your first name is one of your grandparents' names. Your surname is the name of your first pet, then 'of' followed by the name of the street you grew up on."
Warning: This “what’s your royal wedding guest name” game is data mining. It combines the answers to three of the most commonly used security questions. This may not apply specially to you, but let’s not spread it around so others might be fooled. pic.twitter.com/V78aSreXaI— Bree Despain (@breedespain) May 18, 2018
"If they’re asking you what could be security-rated questions like ‘What’s your mother’s maiden name?' – things that you would get asked that would allow you to perhaps reset a password, login to a system through some alternative approach – they could be taking that information and be attempting to hack into systems with that," Dave Hatter, WXIX's technology expert, told the TV station.
A computer security expert identified as Snow echoed the sentiment in a message to HuffPost, saying the answers "could be used to gain access to accounts (social media, banking, work email, etc) with potential for identity theft."
