Akron Children’s Hospital joins HMHP in ‘topping off’ ceremony

03-25-2013

Akron Children’s Hospital joined Humility of Mary Health Partners today in their “topping off” ceremony as the last beam was placed on the construction of a seven-story tower at their St. Elizabeth Health Center campus in Boardman.

Akron Children’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit currently located at St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown will move to St. Elizabeth Boardman when the construction is complete in the spring of 2014.

Akron Children’s plans include 24 private, state-of-the-art rooms that will accommodate families, who wish to stay with their infant and to foster family-centered care. The design will allow adjoining rooms to accommodate twins or triplets as needed. The unit will allow the highly skilled neonatal team to continue to provide the best care for the most fragile patients as well as provide parents with the emotional and ongoing support they need.

Shawn Lyden, Executive Vice President for Akron Children’s, provided comments at the event.

This project represents a continuation of the commitment Akron Children’s made to this area in 2008 when it opened its Beeghly campus,” said Lyden. “Since that time, we have added services, enhanced programs and provided quality care that is close to home for children and families. This neonatal intensive care unit is an extension of our commitment.”
