Cincinnati Children’s Centerville sees ‘incredible response’ from patient families before Monday opening

Monday, March 06, 2023

Patient families and local officials were among those who cheered the dedication of Cincinnati Children’s Centerville during a ribbon-cutting ceremony in advance of the medical building’s scheduled opening on Monday, March 6. The facility will provide subspecialty care at 6555 Clyo Road.

“Our new presence in Centerville represents just one way that we continue to find opportunities to expand our services to children who need our care,” said Evaline Alessandrini, MD, a pediatrician who is chief operating officer of Cincinnati Children’s.

“We have long served patients and families from this area – and now they no longer have to drive a long distance for care,” said Alessandrini, master of ceremonies during the Friday, March 3, dedication of the medical center’s first building in Montgomery County.

“Cincinnati Children’s Centerville has seen an incredible response from patients and families who had not previously had easy access to the world-class care that the medical center provides,” said Alessandrini, who noted that more than 400 appointments were made for the new location in advance of the opening.

Cincinnati Children’s Centerville will improve access to a wide range of pediatric care, anchored by: Gastroenterology; Neurology; Urology; Heart; and Ear, Nose & Throat. Over time, Cincinnati Children’s expects to add other subspecialty care at the location.

Speakers at the dedication included suburban Dayton resident Hollee Stanton and her son Gabriel, 14, a patient at Cincinnati Children’s. The Centerville location will ensure shorter travel time for the family.

Mayor Brooks Compton, who was among many local officials at the ceremony, said Cincinnati Children’s Centerville will be an important addition to the community. Cincinnati Children’s is investing about $9.1 million to open the medical building.

James Greenberg, MD, a neonatologist, said Cincinnati Children’s Centerville will have at least a dozen employees onsite daily. That will include physicians and advance practice providers, nurses, medical technicians and assistants, as well as support staff.

“We want to make it easy for those with multiple care needs to be seen in one place, close to their homes and in coordination with other local providers, pediatricians, schools and the larger community,” said Greenberg, who serves as Cincinnati Children’s lead physician executive for master planning.

Patient appointments can be scheduled by visiting or by telephoning 937-610-1121. Cincinnati Children’s Centerville, 6555 Clyo Road, is easily accessible from Interstate 675, Ohio State Route 48 (Main Street) and Wilmington Pike.

Cincinnati Children’s is ranked the No. 1 pediatric hospital in Ohio and the rest of the Midwest by U.S. News & World Report, and the medical center is No. 3 overall in the entire nation. With regard to Gastroenterology & GI Surgery, Cincinnati Children’s is ranked No. 1 in the nation.
