NCMF, Akron Children's announce new affiliation


On July 1, the Pediatrics Department at North Canton Medical Foundation will become part of Akron Children’s network of pediatric primary care offices.

The affiliation creates the first pediatric primary care office for Akron Children’s in Stark County, according to Ben Teske, director of primary care services at Children’s, which is called Akron Children’s Hospital Pediatrics (ACHP).

“We are committed to ensuring that children receive the finest care close to their homes – from preventive checkups to treatment for chronic health problems,” he said. “Our resources, services and network of 21 primary care locations throughout northeast Ohio will compliment the great care that NCMF providers have been offering children of Stark County for more than 40 years.”

“This arrangement will maintain our current staff, office hours and onsite lab and radiology services,” he said.

The practice will be renamed: Akron Children’s Hospital Pediatrics North Canton.

The practice will welcome Amy Senk, DO on July 1. She earned her medical degree from Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed her residency at Akron Children’s. Dr. Senk comes to ACHP from Akron Children’s campus in Mahoning Valley where she was a hospitalist.

The team offers a full range of care for infants, children and teens, including:

Medicaid and most insurance plans are accepted, including AultCare. Office hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., and Saturday 8 a.m.-noon. To schedule an appointment, call 330-433-1777.
