We are—and have been—fully aware of allegations of inappropriate fiscal and operational management at Kettering Health. Our Board and leadership team take these allegations seriously and are committed to integrity, improvement, and upholding the trust of our staff, providers, and community.

To ensure impartiality, the Board retained an outside firm to conduct an internal investigation and another to recommend updates to our processes and policies. While this work is ongoing, we are taking steps to address wrongdoing and shortcomings we identify. These steps include making necessary personnel changes—inclusive of employees and members of the Board—to ensure both individual accountability and strict compliance with updated and comprehensive governance practices. Consistent with organizational policy, no specific personnel issues will be discussed.

Kettering Health remains steadfast in our faith, and with a dedicated team and a strong financial position, we will continue to deliver on our sacred mission throughout Western Ohio. Our commitment and mission “to improve the quality of life of the people in the communities we serve through healthcare and education” will never waver.
