Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley opens new emergency room in Boardman

04-19-2023 (Akron, Ohio )

Akron Children’s Mahoning Valley will open a new emergency room (ER) on its Beeghly campus in Boardman on April 19. 

The new space is adjacent to the former emergency room that opened in 2008 and was designed for 80 visits a day. In recent years, more than double that number of patients were cared for each day in the department.

The new facility increases the emergency room’s square footage from 9,600 to 34,700. Designed through the eyes of a child with input from patient families and staff, the expanded ER features:

  • 23 treatment rooms, which includes 3 behavior health flex rooms
  • A private behavioral health waiting room
  • Isolation rooms
  • Easy access for Air Bear, Akron Children’s dedicated transport helicopter
  • Dedicated suture rooms
  • Radiology services that use lower amounts of radiation
  • Student artwork representing Poland, Canfield and Boardman schools 

The project was supported with $3,165,539 contributed through the generosity of our community and  donors. The following donors contributed $200,000 or more:

  • Lenny Fisher
  • Farmers National Bank
  • Florence Simon Beecher Foundation
  • The Cafaro Foundation
  • Window World of Youngstown/Moran Family
  • Jim and Ellen Tressel

“This expanded emergency department is an investment in the Mahoning Valley community and builds on Akron Children’s commitment to bring care closer to home,” said Paul Olivier, vice president of Akron Children’s Mahoning Valley Enterprises. “The generosity of our donors as well as the input from our patient families, employees and construction professionals ensure the infants, children and teens in this area have the access to care they deserve.”
