Akron Children's to offer rehab services in Medina

01-21-2016 (Akron, Ohio )

Akron Children’s Hospital will offer rehabilitative services in Medina, beginning Jan. 25.

Akron Children’s will have pediatric-focused physical, occupational and speech therapists and audiologists available Monday through Friday at a new office at 3443 Medina Road, Suite 110. In addition, physical therapists focused on helping young athletes prevent and recover from sports-related injuries will also be available at this site.  

“We are thrilled to open a Medina office,” said Mary Marino, director of Rehabilitative Services for Akron Children’s. “We have many patient families who come to our main campus in downtown Akron from Medina and this is something they have wanted. It will be very convenient for their children’s therapy appointments.”

Akron Children’s therapists work with infants, children and teens who require therapy following an illness or injury or to manage the effects of a chronic condition, such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, or an autism spectrum disorder.

“Our therapists work with patients from every department in the hospital and cover the full spectrum of therapy needs, from newborns with feeding disorders and toddlers with a speech delays to children  with a learning problems and teens with a developmental delay working toward independent living,” said Marino. “The staff at this office can provide the initial evaluation with a physician’s order, as well as provide the ongoing therapy sessions.”

Appointments will be available from 7 am to 6 pm. To make an appointment, call 330-721-2990.

“Akron Children’s is known for pediatric-focused rehab services,” said Marino. “We are an independent children’s hospital so that has been and always will be our focus.”
