Kettering Adventist HealthCare

Kettering Casting the Net

Story by Marcia Ehlers

Over the last 25 years, many underserved families in the Dayton area have come to know the Good Neighbor House (GNH). GNH, Seventh-day Adventist urban ministry, provides food pantry services, clothing, household items, and medical and dental services. Over the past few years, Dayton has seen an increase of refugees, and this pandemic brought along a challenge to supply food to families who not only had varied dietary needs, but also a language barrier. GNH knew they had to reach out to their community partners for help, and the “net” was cast.

Health care is a constantly changing environment. New technology brings new machines and procedures, and new buildings are designed with efficiency in mind. New diseases and infections are treated, while new viruses challenge the very heart of our health care systems. The coronavirus pandemic—COVID-19—was just that. Kettering Adventist HealthCare (KAHC) in Ohio came together to navigate this evolving threat that is genderless, raceless, faceless, classless, sexless, and nondenominational.
