The Medical Center at Elizabeth Place, Dayton, Ohio, a 26-bed, physician-owned hospital, will open this September in the same location as the former St. Elizabeth's Hospital, which closed in 2000. Sixty area physicians will own a 90% stake in the facility, while Regent Surgical Health, Westchester, Ill., a developer of surgery centers and surgical hospitals, will own the remaining portion, according to a spokesman for both Regent and the Medical Center at Elizabeth Place. Financial details were not disclosed. With a staff of 80 employees, the 40,000-square-foot facility will include four operating rooms and offer general surgery, orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, gynecology and other services. "By opening this physician-owned hospital, we are helping to restore a longtime asset to the community and offering more choices for healthcare," Tamme Hafer, chief executive officer for the Medical Center at Elizabeth Place, said in a news release. "Because we are run by physicians, we will take care of the entire community, regardless of insurance or the ability to pay." -- by Jessica Zigmond
