Last month, the Middletown Planning Commission unanimously denied the rezoning request, which would have enabled Kettering Health Network to have eight to 20 inpatient beds and offer other hospital services.

That decision was forwarded to Middletown City Council for consideration at Tuesday’s meeting for final approval.

Richard Haas, Kettering Health Network senior vice president, made the request to dismiss the requests and to have it taken off council’s agenda for Tuesday.
