Akron Children's Hospital Mahoning Valley receives $25,000 grant from The Youngstown Foundation

01-25-2011

Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley has been awarded a $25,000 grant from The Youngstown Foundation to help fund renovation costs associated with the opening of the pediatric surgery center, which is located on the Beeghly campus in Boardman.

“We are very grateful for the support of the The Youngstown Foundation,” said JoAnn Stock, director of Development for Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley. “The opening of the area’s only dedicated pediatric surgery department provides us with the opportunity to better serve the children and families of Youngstown, Warren and the surrounding communities.”

The renovated 14,000-square-foot facility provides modern surgical suites, a sterile processing center, and an eight-bed post-anesthesia care unit.

The surgical team includes pediatric anesthesiologists, specialty surgeons, nurses, surgical technicians and a child life specialist, all of whom understand the unique medical needs and concerns of children and their families.

Akron Children’s Hospital performs more pediatric surgeries than any other hospital in northeast Ohio. Since opening in October 2010, more than 155 pediatric surgeries have been performed at Beeghly.
