Why Upper Valley Medical Center

The 139-bed Upper Valley Medical Center is situated on a peaceful green campus just off I-75 about 20 miles north of Dayton between Troy and Piqua. UVMC also includes a network of outpatient satellite facilities conveniently located in the surrounding communities. The hospital is served by 218 physicians and nearly 1,600 employees who exemplify a culture of professionalism and dedication to quality patient care for the communities we serve. UVMC is committed to serving our communities in ways that go beyond traditional hospital services, such as free health screenings, partnerships with area schools and collaborative support for the local Health Partners Free Clinic.
UVMC is a member of Premier Health, which also encompasses Miami Valley and Good Samaritan Hospitals in Dayton, Atrium Medical Center in Warren County and affiliate organizations in seven counties. The mission of the Premier Health is to build healthier communities with others who share or commitment to providing high-quality, cost-competitive health care services.
A History of Foresight and Commitment to Excellence
Upper Valley Medical Center was built on a tradition of more than 100 years of quality community health care services. UVMC was founded in 1986 as the umbrella corporation for the merger of Miami County’s three hospitals: Stouder Memorial in Troy and Piqua Memorial in Piqua—both of which dated back to the early 1900s—and Dettmer Hospital, built in the 1950s on the 40-acre rural site which is now the UVMC campus.
After years of preparation, the Upper Valley Medical Center opened in 1998, consolidating acute care services to a central location within the county. The strength of UVMC today is the result of foresight, wisdom and thoughtful planning to eliminate duplication while maintaining quality health care services for the future.
