Akron Children's Hospital handles nearly 90,000 ER visits each year, making it one of the busiest pediatric ERs in the country. With a large ER volume, we strive hard to maintain high standards in efficiency in emergency care.
ER Length of Stay
We use a carefully developed triage system to help expedite the care of our patients. In 2004, we launched a separate division of the ER called Fast Track that cares for children whose conditions are less emergent. Fast Track allows our staff of the main ER to focus on children who are critically ill and require more urgent care.
About 85% of patients with non-urgent needs are registered, examined, treated and discharged in less than 2 hours, even during the busy summer months.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
