Expanding Cancer Care in Dayton

The Challenge

Kettering Health Network wished to expand its cancer services beyond the Medical Center through a stand-alone Cancer Center. As the most comprehensive cancer center in the region, it will offer full service, hospital-based, patient-centered cancer care for the mind, body, and spirit. Making this $53 million facility a reality requires $10 million in community investment.

The Solution

CCS partnered with Kettering to develop the best course of action and messaging to ensure community support for the potentially life-saving Cancer Center. CCS provided leadership support to volunteers and crafted compelling campaign materials, articulating the potential impact of the Cancer Center to the community. To date, the campaign has raised $8.6 million of its $10 million goal.

The Impact

The Cancer Center will offer complete care to patients in a caring environment, with dedicated patient-centric services and specialized treatments to fight cancer. The center will serve as a single touch point for patients, providing them with a wide range of services. This exceptional campaign has rallied the community and compelled an outpouring of support, including a $1.5 million gift. CCS also had the opportunity to ensure no momentum was lost during a change in the Kettering Medical Center Foundation’s leadership.
