The Behavioral Health ER at Akron Children’s Hospital recently celebrated its first anniversary of providing care for patients who come to the hospital with mental and behavioral issues.

Since opening in September 2010, the Behavioral Health ER has treated nearly 3,000 patients.  The unit is staffed by specially-trained medical and nursing staff who provide treatment in a calm, therapeutic setting. 

The Behavioral Health ER at Akron Children’s was made possible through the generosity of donors including the Akron Children’s Hospital Women’s Board, the Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation, Northern Ohio Golf Charities, the Timken Foundation, and the Lehner Family Foundation.
