Akron Children’s continued growth enhances the economy as an employer, taxpayer and collaborator with local universities and businesses, as well as by being a magnet for healthcare professionals. A recent study indicated our local economic impact to be more than $1 billion annually.
Our continued investment will transform the way we deliver care to families, ensuring that we uphold our promises to our patients and their families to: treat each child as our own; treat others as you would want to be treated; and turn no child away regardless of the ability to pay.
