A lot can happen in 125 years. But some things, like where you call home, will never change.
What started as humble beginnings as a day nursery in 1890 has slowly evolved into the largest pediatric healthcare system in northeast Ohio.
Much has happened during Akron Children’s 125-year history, but one thing always remains, our commitment to provide high-quality, family-centered care for the children and families of our community.
We are proud of our roots in northeast Ohio, and are touched by the overwhelming support we get from the communities in which we operate.
We know that much like Akron Children’s, there are many people from our community who have accomplished great things and touched the lives of many, but their humble beginnings started right here in northeast Ohio.
That’s why, in celebration of our 125th anniversary, we reached out to some of these friends to help show appreciation for our generous donors, world-class staff and supportive community for making Akron Children’s Hospital what it is today.
Check out our video and hear the stories firsthand from our friends who have been impacted by Akron Children’s and are proud to have the best pediatric care available right in their own backyard.
We thank everyone for helping us celebrate our special milestone year by sharing their stories and always providing unwavering support as we continue to grow and provide extraordinary care close to home.
As part of our year-long anniversary celebration, we’re telling the story of Akron Children’s through the eyes of past and present employees, doctors, donors, volunteers and patient families. We encourage you to share your own memories and stories about us.
