One of the true gems of the “Gem City” is Dayton Children’s Hospital, a not-for-profit pediatric care provider and leading advocate for children in the Dayton region. With a history of innovation spanning more than a half-century, Dayton Children’s recently turned to altafiber to help it better meet the needs of today’s tech-savvy parents.

“The parents of our children are part of the millennial and Gen Z generations, and they are digital natives,” said Debbie Feldman, president and CEO of Dayton Children’s. “They want to be able to support their children’s health in a digital way. They want to be able to make an appointment at 10 at night when they finally have a chance to take a breath after their children are in bed. They want to be able to track their children’s health through the use of wearables and other kinds of technology. All of these technologies and new digital approaches are going to be instrumental to how we care for children in the future and how we monitor their health.”
