Akron Children’s Hospital has earned a Legacy Award, signifying the 10th time the hospital has been named one of the region’s best places to work. Children’s will receive its NorthCoast 99 award at a ceremony on Sept. 22.

This annual recognition program recognizes 99 outstanding Northeast Ohio workplaces for their ability to attract, retain and motivate top talent. The program is presented by the ERC, the area’s leading and largest professional organization dedicated to human resources practices, programs and services.

“We are gratified to receive our 10th NorthCoast 99 Award,” said Walt Schwoeble, vice president, human resources. “Children’s has gone through tremendous growth and change over the past couple years. Throughout that growth, the alignment with our mission – from our board to our front-line staff, continues to be exceptional. No matter what their role, our employees have remained steadfast in their commitment to our promise to treat every child as they would their own.

“Akron Children’s is committed to investing in employee training and development, and we actively focus on employee satisfaction and involvement,” Schwoeble added. “Our leadership team continues to be awed and inspired by our employees’ desire to do all they can to ensure a bright future for the children and families we serve. We are honored to know that they continue to believe Akron Children’s is a place where they are respected and rewarded – and where they can continue to develop their skills while making an impact on the lives of others.”
