When Miami Valley Hospital South looked to broaden their services as part of their long-term vision for the health system, they called on Gresham Smith to renovate and expand their campus in Centerville, Ohio. With a focus on creating an adaptable space that can change as technology and treatment methods evolve, our team created a new joint and spine center with expanded sports medicine, sports performance and pain center services. We also renovated their emergency medicine, cardiology and primary care spaces and added the facility’s first cardiac catheterization lab. The updated Miami Valley Hospital South is truly a one-stop-shop for comprehensive care, providing a state-of-the-art space to serve patients close to home.

A Seamless Expansion

A Seamless Expansion

The 170,000-square-foot, six-story addition blends seamlessly into the existing façade, matching the five-story patient tower addition the Gresham Smith team designed in 2007. The orthopedic center’s new two-story lobby features a sleek glass elevator and escalators, while floor to ceiling windows provide natural light. The design team used a palette of cool greys and blues, dark woods and metallics to create a warm, hospitality-like environment, which is cohesive with the rest of the hospital.
Fostering Physician Collaboration

Fostering Physician Collaboration

A centrally located physician office area adjacent to the hospital’s six new operating rooms allows all orthopedic doctors and surgeons to work together in the same space, enhancing communication and patient care.
Comprehensive Care Under One Roof

Comprehensive Care Under One Roof

From initial assessment and preventative care to surgery and rehabilitation, the new orthopedic center at Miami Valley Hospital South provides comprehensive care under one roof. Throughout the project our team focused on creating a customized environment equipped with the latest technology, while also designing a space that can adapt to rapidly-changing technology and treatment methods.


“Our orthopedic team at Miami Valley Hospital South ranks in the top 10 percent nationwide by many measures. Gresham Smith created a space that provides the resources our staff need to continue delivering the highest level of care for the Centerville community, helping our patients continue participating in the activities they care about.”
