The following guidelines apply to guests and patients visiting Pure Healthcare, Care Center – Dayton. For our services being provided within a hospital, extended care or other facilities, we will defer to the rules and guidelines in place at those locations.

The mission of Pure Healthcare is to provide individualized, person-centered education, supportive care and health services that maximize the quality of life of those we have the privilege to serve, enabling them to thrive and live independently, longer.

We are working to do our part to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and to protect the well-being of our visitors, patients and staff. After careful consideration of the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations, we have implemented an updated visitor policy and guidelines to protect our patients, families, volunteers and staff.
