About the Project

Inspired by a child's natural play environment, our 7-story Kay Jewelers Pavilion represents a different aspect of a backyard, with paint, carpeting, flooring, graphics and artwork to support the them. Picutre here is the main lobby on the 3rd floor with colorful, hanging art that represents leaves on a tree.

From humble beginnings as a day nursery in 1890, Akron Children’s Hospital has evolved into the largest pediatric healthcare system in northeast Ohio, operating 2 pediatric hospitals, 23 pediatrician offices, and about 70 pediatric specialty locations across the region.

In fact, we’re the fastest growing hospital in the country, according to Modern Healthcare.

Our pediatric services draw more than 800,000 patient visits each year, and include children, teens and adults from across the country and around the world.

In 2012, we announced the launch of a $200 million expansion of our Akron campus to meet the current and future needs of children and their families. The  project is the result of significant growth in the hospital’s patient volumes and services. It includes the 7-story Kay Jewelers Pavilion, new parking deck and an expansion of the Ronald McDonald House of Akron.
