Centerville Noon Optimist Club Completes Major Donation to Dayton Children’s “Reaching New Heights” Campaign to Transform Care for Kids

On July 16, 2017, Dayton Children’s Hospital successfully moved patients into the new eight story tower!

The Centerville Noon Optimist Club played a major role in supporting the Reaching New Heights campaign to transform care at Dayton Children’s Hospital! We helped to create a world-class healing environment that is just right for the tiniest to the tallest patients. 

On Sunday, 45 patients were moved into floors four, five and six, otherwise known as the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, Wallace Critical Care Center and Mills Family Cancer & Blood Disorder Center. The move went off without a hitch and the new patients were welcomed. Floors seven and eight, our Specialty Care Units, will move later this fall in October. 

The Centerville Noon Optimist room is in the Oncology-Hematology wing. It will serve as an “Assessment Room” for helping admit children who have been stricken with cancer.

This is just another example of how Optimists are making a difference in the lives of children in Dayton and surrounding vicinities. Funds for this investment came from the Annual Tom Frazier Tee Off for Youth Golf Classic, Annual Christmas Tree Sales and the Avenue of Flags program.
