Your family's time is precious. And Akron Children's Hospital is dedicated to helping you spend more of it together. With 29 locations and nearly 150 providers, our expert pediatric primary care is just a hop, skip and a jump away.

We accept most insurance plans, including Medicaid. We participate in the Ohio Department of Medicaid's Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) program, which empowers primary care offices to use a team-based model of care to improve quality, reduce costs and deliver the best possible care. 

We are recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home program. We are dedicated to improving access and care coordination, caring for all aspects of a child’s health and well-being; and encouraging families to take an active role in their kids’ health care.

When a child has a condition that requires specialized medical care, our pediatricians work closely with Akron Children's Hospital pediatric specialists. We share information between our offices and with area health care providers to ensure your child receives the finest care – from preventive checkups to treatment for chronic health problems.

We make every effort to meet the needs of your busy family. Many of our pediatrician offices offer weekend and evening hours. You can schedule annual well-visits and request prescription refills through MyChart, a secure website.

And when you have questions about your child's illness or injury when our offices are closed, we provide a 24-hour nurse line called Children's After Hours.
