A new MRI for kids in the Mahoning Valley

New MRI at Akron Children's Beeghly campus

The radiology department at Akron Children’s Beeghly campus has undergone a major renovation. There’s a new area dedicated for sedation services as well as an updated ultrasound scanning area. Most importantly, we’ve installed a new, top-of-the-line MRI.

“HO HO HO, Merry Christmas!” The sound of Santa’s voice crackles through a hand-held radio device. The little girl, wearing a tiger gown, perks up and smiles, her eyes alight as she hears Santa calling her name.

Parents have dreams of bringing home their babies shortly after birth, and for many reasons, that dream doesn’t come to fruition for the families we serve. It is the role of the medical team to lead our families through this difficult time while enhancing their quality of life.

A grad party like no other


Taylor Tonty from Sharpesville, Pa., was recently a patient on our pediatric floor on the Beeghly campus in Boardman. When she found out she was going to miss her 5th grade graduation because she was in the hospital, she was extremely disappointed and began to cry. To lift her spirits, the staff decided to have a celebration on the unit.
