One of the biggest office buildings in downtown Dayton is getting ready to go on the market.

Over 1,000 people worked at Premier Health in the downtown area before the Covid-19 pandemic. As of right moment, including additional renters, that figure is about 200, according to Premier Health officials on Wednesday.

The medical facility will continue to be a tenant, but claims that a significant shift to remote work has led to the decision to sell the building. Real Estate has taken a big hit in the US after rise in remote work.

Premier Health intends to lease space in its 297,000-square-foot building at 110 N. Main St. to preserve its presence in the city.

Premier Health issued the following statement:

“The Covid-19 pandemic has rapidly transformed the nature of work in the United States, with remote work and hybrid work arrangements becoming far more common across the U.S. economy. The vast majority of Premier Health employees are clinical and, of course, work in-person at our various sites of care. During the pandemic, however, the vast majority of office workers in the Premier System Support building (i.e. 110 N. Main St., aka the Premier Health Center) worked remotely due to health and safety considerations.”

Premier Health has roughly 11,300 local employees and had $2.15 billion in net revenue in 2021.
