About KETTERING MEDICAL CENTER PGY1
Our flagship hospital, Kettering Medical Center, stands proudly in Kettering, Ohio. From top quality in the nation, to compassionate cancer care, to state-of-the-art technology like cardiac stereotaxis, we're committed to the health and wellness of our community.
Great American inventor Charles F. Kettering had a vision for the use of innovative technology in everyday patient care in a community hospital setting. His son, Eugene, and daughter-in-law, Virginia, set out to fulfill that vision by building a hospital as a living memorial to Charles Kettering's lifetime of achievement in innovation.
After witnessing firsthand at an Adventist hospital in Chicago the impact a faith-based approach to health and healing can have, Eugene and Virginia chose the Seventh-day Adventist church to operate the new Charles F. Kettering Memorial Hospital when it opened in 1964.
The sacred work that started back then continues today. Now known as Kettering Medical Center, we serve patients throughout the Dayton, Ohio area. The facility includes the Benjamin and Marian Schuster Heart Hospital, maternity service with a level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), and emergency care.
