After years of providing high-quality care to families across Mahoning Valley, one thing has become clear: Akron Children’s Hospital is dedicated to the Valley. That’s why we’re proud to announce that on Oct. 7 we will officially break ground for an $18.6 million construction project to expand our Beeghly campus by more than 51,000 square […]
Akron Children's Hospital launched a $200 million expansion of its Akron campus in 2012 to meet the current and future needs of children and their families. Called Building on the Promise, the project is the result of significant growth in the hospital's patient volumes and services.
Last year, workers fashioned a Christmas tree powered by a car battery that was hoisted by one of our massive cranes each night. The cranes may be gone this year, but the holiday spirit remains. This year Santa is climbing to the 15-foot Christmas tree on the roof of our new Kay Jewelers Pavilion.
Perkins Square Park resembled a family reunion on Aug. 13 when patient families and Akron Children’s employees came together to celebrate the conclusion of the Graffiti Project. The Akron Children’s Hospital Foundation created the Graffiti Project as a way to honor, remember and celebrate the hospital’s current and former patients.
After suspending a Christmas tree from a tower crane, and donating gifts to Akron Children’s patients during the holidays, Marge Zezulewicz, project architect manager for the new building under construction on the Akron campus, asked herself, “What’s next?”
Whether it’s the Akron and Mahoning Valley radiothons, or celebrities visiting patients and dancing to raise money and awareness for the hospital, we’re always proud to share the good work that’s being done on behalf of the hospital.
The high-risk delivery space in Akron Children’s new medical tower is being designed to accommodate a projected 100 patients annually, with plenty of room for expansion as the patient census grows.
