09-05-2017 (Akron, Mahoning Valley, Ohio )

For the 11th year, Akron Children’s Hospital has been recognized as one of the region’s best places to work. Children’s will receive its NorthCoast 99 award at a ceremony on Sept. 26.


“Our employees have devoted their careers to serving others, so this recognition of our talented, compassionate team is especially meaningful,” said Grace Wakulchik, president of Akron Children’s.


“Our staff members uphold the highest standards of excellence in their delivery of care to our patients and their families,” Wakulchik continued. “They demonstrate their respect for each other, commitment to education and research and dedication to our northeast Ohio communities. Without our talented and dedicated employees, we would not be able to serve our families. We’re thrilled to be honored as one of northeast Ohio’s best workplaces and are grateful to our employees, who bring their best efforts to work every day.”


This annual program recognizes 99 outstanding Northeast Ohio work places for their efforts to attract, support, retain and motivate their top performers. NorthCoast 99 is presented by the ERC, the area’s leading and largest professional organization dedicated to human resources practices, programs and services.
