Overview

We serve as a medical home for children and adolescents. We have a particular interest in children with special health care needs, international families, as well as foster parents and adopted children.

Akron Children’s Hospital Pediatrics and Locust Pediatric Care Group received Patient-centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance. It’s a model that improves quality and access to care, empowering patients and families to take an active role in their health care.

We also participate in the Ohio Department of Medicaid's Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) program, which empowers primary care offices to use a team-based model of care to improve quality, reduce costs and deliver the best possible care. 

 

We offer the complete range of medical and support services needed to achieve the best possible outcomes for your children. Our goal is to provide coordinated access to Akron Children's specialty medical services for children with special needs. Brothers and sisters without special healthcare needs are also welcome.

Other benefits include:

  • Specialized pediatric care for individuals
  • 24-hour nurse and physician phone coverage
  • Medical interpreters and language access
  • Pre- and post-adoption services
  • On-site legal aid through HEAL partnership
  • On-site counseling services through Child Guidance and Family Solutions
  • Nutritional consultation
  • Social work assistance
  • Telepsychiatry
  • Participation in Reach Out and Read®, an early literacy program
