More than 12,000 childhoods are cut short each year due to accidents. That’s why we team up with organizations across the region to help families with injury prevention programs, services and resources. Whether they’re in the water or in their crib, on two wheels or four, we are dedicated to helping every child stay safe.
That's how many days there are in the average childhood. We do everything we can to help kids make the most of them. From wellness visits to breakthrough research – Akron Children's is devoted to the very best patient outcomes.
Childhood shouldn't stop when a child is sick or hurt. In-room and hospital offerings like the cookie cart, the Doggie Brigade's 80 therapy pups, game rooms, expressive therapy and so much more encourage kids to feel at home and help bring some of childhood's joys to their stays.
