From humble beginnings as a day nursery in 1890, Akron Children’s Hospital has evolved into the largest pediatric healthcare system in northeast Ohio, operating 2 pediatric hospitals, 20 pediatrician offices, and about 70 pediatric specialty locations across the region.
Our pediatric services draw more than 600,000 patient visits each year, and include children, teens and adults from across the country and around the world.
Akron Children's has also earned Best Children's Hospitals rankings by US News & World Report in 7 of the 10 specialties. These include cancer, diabetes and endocrinology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.
In addition to our primary, critical and specialized care, we offer more than 100 advocacy, education and outreach programs to promote the well-being of children. We are a major teaching affiliate of Northeast Ohio Medical University, helping train future generations of pediatricians and specialists, and our research institute is dedicated to advancing pediatric medicine and improving standards of patient care.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
