About Building on the Promise

Building on the Promise is a $200 million campus transformation project, centered around a new critical care tower near Locust and Exchange streets. It will house a new neonatal intensive care unit, emergency department, ambulatory surgery center and room for additional clinical programs. This facility was designed for better patient outcomes through more efficient processes and more flexible space, and will allow the hospital to continue to grow. It will enhance the high-quality, compassionate, family-centered care Akron Children’s has been delivering for more than 120 years. In addition, the Ronald McDonald House on the Akron campus will be expanded and renovated.
