Trauma Services

Akron Children's trauma program is a leading center in the treatment and care of injured children. Since 2001, Akron Children's has earned verification by the American College of Surgeons as a Pediatric Trauma Center.

Our program's success depends on our ability to execute a multi-disciplinary team approach to the care of injured children and teens. Our team includes pediatric surgeons, physicians, nurses, social workers and rehabilitation therapists.

Our program is also active in preventing children from becoming seriously injured through our commitment to an injury prevention program and representation on Safe Kids Summit County.
