When Akron Children’s Hospital’s new building opens in 2015, more than 400 new pieces of colorful, child-friendly art will adorn its walls. The art will match the building’s backyard theme, as well as the related themes of the individual department floors. Of the total, 250 pieces will be children’s art.
Colorful, engaging spaces and child-friendly art installations are woven throughout the fabric of Akron Children’s Hospital’s facilities. It’s an important part of the care we provide. Spaces that make kids feel relaxed and happy, even though they’re in the hospital, can actually help with recovery and ease pain.
