In March 2017, Akron Children’s Hospital broke ground on a 230,000-square-foot addition to the Considine Professional Building. Today, the driveway and front doors are open, as well as a few of the departments.
The new Welcome Centers and main lobby areas on Levels 2 and 3 also opened with self-serve kiosks and staffed desks to register patients arriving for appointments in the building.
Once all 10 departments move it, the new building will bring together most of our outpatient clinics on the Akron campus.
In addition to the existing bridge that connects the Time Line lobby in the Main Hospital Building to Level 3 in the Considine Building, the new bridge will open with walking access to the Atrium Lobby.
The schedule for other departments and services moving to their new spaces in the building are:
Opened Aug. 13 on Level 6:
- Pediatric Surgery
Opening Sept. 17 on Level 3
- Adolescent Medicine
- Locust Pediatric Care Group
- Outpatient Lab
- Outpatient Pharmacy
Opening Oct. 22 on Level 2: Behavioral Health
Opening Oct. 29 on Level 2: Garden Patch Bistro
Opening Dec. 21 on Level 5
- Genetic Center
Parking will be available in the attached P1 Bowery Deck, and valet parking will be offered at the Bowery Street entrance under a covered canopy. The Considine Professional Building is located at 215 W. Bowery St., Akron, OH 44308.
Designed “through the eyes of a child,” each floor reflects a neighborhood theme, using colors and artwork to create a soothing, healing space.
Plan to come see it during a Community Open House on Sat., Oct. 27, 11 a .m.- 2p.m. Mark your calendars and stay tuned for details.
