CINCINNATI -- The Shriners Hospital for Children in Cincinnati is planning to move its operations to Dayton and sell its building in Cincinnati.

The hospital, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, announced Wednesday that officials are in talks to move its services and name to a building on the campus of Dayton Children's Hospital within 16 months. The Shriners International hospital system is headquartered in Tampa, Florida.

Fewer than 200 doctors, nurses and other caregivers work at the Cincinnati hospital. Shriners International Chief Marketing Officer Mel Bower said the new facility will probably not need that many workers, but said "we certainly would like that as many of our employees as possible are able to join us."
