The University of Dayton announced today that a new medical facility will open in the summer of 2022 that will provide an urgent care for students and health services for employees. 

The new facility, which will be located on Brown Street between the blocks of Sawmill and Stonemill Avenues, will provide a number of services for the campus community. Primary care physicians, as well as lab testing, rehabilitation, imagining and counseling services will be available at the clinic, the university announcement said.  

“The University is thrilled to support this community-centered medical facility that meets our priorities for Brown Street development to complement the character of the neighborhood residential area, the small business district and our campus,” said Andy Horner, UD’s executive vice president for business and administrative services.

The new facility will replace the Premier Health after-hours urgent care currently located in Marianist Hall. UD’s Student Health Center and the Counseling Center in Gosiger Hall will continue to serve students, despite the new medical facility, said Horner. 

Samaritan Behavioral Health will provide counseling services at the new clinic. Samaritan Behavioral will also be a bridge between the Health Center and the Brown Street facility to provide long-term and therapeutic mental health care for students on referral. UD is currently working with Premiere Health on insurance details to make the new facility affordable and accessible, said Horner.  

The project is one of many joint ventures between UD and Premiere Heath. The university has worked with the health network to provide COVID-19 testing and vaccine clinics for students throughout the pandemic. The 30,000 square-foot development is also a partnership with Crawford Hoying, Woodard Development and the university.
