Dayton Children’s moving 100 jobs to Tech Town

Dayton Children’s Hospital is moving its information technology department from its main campus to Tech Town.

The move, planned for early next year, will affect about 100 employees who will occupy 13,880 square feet of leased space on the second floor of the newest building at the downtown business park, located at 241 Taylor Street.

The hospital is relocating employees from its Valley Street campus to accommodate construction next year on a new $140 million, eight-story patent tower. Construction of the 260,000-square-foot tower and new central utilities plant is expected to be completed in 2017.

Hospital officials said the growing use of electronic medical records and health information technicians prompted the move to Tech Town — the Dayton region’s most prominent technology hub.

“We are pleased to be able to move our IT staff to a location specially designed for that work,” said David Mattingly, Dayton Children’s chief technology officer. “It is an ideal environment in which to provide the hospital with IT services.”

The IT staff will incorporate a variety of videoconferencing and advanced telecommunications technology at the Tech Town location to allow IT workers and support personnel to interact with their co-workers at the hospital’s main campus.

In addition, the hospital security team will be able to monitor the Tech Town office suite with state-of-the-art camera technology, and the suite will be connected to the main campus using the latest fiber-optic technology.

“We are very excited to have the Dayton Children’s IT division added to the growing technology mix at Tech Town,” said Dayton City Commissioner Matt Joseph. “Tech Town is a perfect fit for the advanced data storage and other secured technology operations managed by Dayton Children’s IT division.”

More than 40 other technology companies already call Tech Town home, according to Steven Budd, president of Dayton-based CityWide Development Corp., which helped broker Dayton Children’s move.

“Dayton is so fortunate to have not only a children’s hospital in our region, but one that is dedicated to growing their services in the urban core,” Budd said.
