Cincinnati Shriners Hospital takes next steps in relocation to Dayton

Esteemed pediatric specialty hospital will remain open in Cincinnati while construction is completed

(CINCINNATI, Ohio; January 6, 2020) – Following a nine-month period of exploration, Shriners Hospitals for Children–Cincinnati is pleased to announce that all contract and construction plans have been approved related to its relocation to the campus of Dayton Children’s Hospital.

In March of last year, leadership of the two pediatric health care organizations publicly announced that they were seeking to pursue a “hospital within a hospital” arrangement, with a goal of relocating the services of Cincinnati Shriners Hospital to the Dayton campus. The 51-year-old Cincinnati institution provides all levels of 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.

Cincinnati Shriners Hospital will remain open and continue to accept new and existing patients at its Burnet Avenue location while construction is completed in Dayton. The estimate for transition is sometime in late 2020.

There has been a steady decline in the severity and number of pediatric burns in the U.S., especially those requiring a long hospital stay. This decline is due in large part to education and prevention efforts, many of have been spearheaded by the Shriners Hospital system.

The new location will allow Shriners Hospitals for Children to maintain its southwest Ohio presence with a surgical facility designed to meet and exceed today’s medical standards for its pediatric specialty care, while gaining operational efficiencies by partnering with Dayton Children’s and purchasing some services.
