CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Shriners Hospitals for Children - Cincinnati announced Monday that they are another step closer to moving to Dayton.
They say all contract and construction plans have been approved regarding their relocation to the campus of Dayton Children’s Hospital.
Cincinnati Shriners Hospital will stay open and continue to accept new and existing patients until construction in Dayton is complete sometime in late 2020.
In March 2019, the two pediatric health care organizations announced they wanted to pursue a “hospital within a hospital” arrangement.
The 51-year-old Shriners Hospital provides pediatric burn treatment, as well as cleft lip and palate, plastic and reconstructive surgery for children up to age 18, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
