Kettering Adventist HealthCare

Story by Elizabeth Long

Kettering Adventist HealthCare plans to build a 67,000 square-foot medical facility on land it purchased in Middletown on State Route 122, just southeast of I-75.

The medical center will transform care for the patients and their families that live in the greater Middletown community. Offering a coordinated approach to healthcare, patients can receive preventative, whole-person care centered around the patient, near where they work and live. This seamless approach is different than anything that currently exists in southwest Ohio. This is truly the facility of tomorrow, today.

We're surrounded by hearts in February. Along with the paper and chocolate versions, there are the human ones: the beating hearts of more than 300 million Americans.

Unfortunately, we're also surrounded by heart disease. In the U.S., it's the leading cause of death for both men and women. “Heart disease can be prevented and controlled,” says Harvey Hahn, MD, a Kettering Physician Network cardiologist. “February is Heart Month, and it serves as a reminder that we need to give our hearts some TLC.”

Even in a short month's time, you can do a lot to take better care of your heart.
