At Akron Children's Hospital, we embrace a culture of family-centered care, an approach to patient care that is respectful and responsive to individual parent and family preferences, needs and values.
We have several ways that we ensure the care we provide is family-centered, including a Parent Advisory Council and family-centered care committee.
Family-centered care shapes our policies, programs, facility design, and day-to-day interactions with our patient families. We recognize the important role families play in ensuring the health and well-being of children. We also understand that emotional, social and developmental support are integral components of healthcare.
We respect the strengths of each patient family and seek to build on these strengths and support families in their caregiving and decision-making roles. Family-centered approaches lead to better health outcomes and better allocation of resources as well as greater patient and family satisfaction.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
