Akron Children’s Hospital believes all children deserve quality, affordable healthcare, a safe environment where they can stretch their minds and bodies, and communities dedicated to giving them the best chance to grow up free from illness and injury.
Our healthcare network is committed to doing everything we can to ensure the healthy future of our children and the communities where they live.
We offer primary care, critical care and specialized services in locations that stretch across northeast Ohio and western Pennsylvania. To advance our mission and achieve our vision, we provide family-centered medical care, share our pediatric expertise with healthcare providers around the world, conduct research studies to find new ways to prevent and treat childhood disease, and advocate for children’s healthcare at the state and federal level.
Our commitment to improving the health of children extends far beyond our hospital walls. We’re working hard to prevent childhood diseases and injuries so families can avoid the problems that land their children in the hospital.
We understand that when it comes to healthcare, it’s important to listen to parents. That’s why we’re committed to developing programs, expanding services and improving access to care in the areas where they’re most needed.
That’s also why we’re collaborating once again with Akron General Health System and Summa Health System on a comprehensive community health needs assessment that will be completed in 2013.
We look forward to working with our community partners to assess the health needs of the residents who live in our core service area, and we plan to develop targeted programs that will address the top health concerns identified by the assessment.
