About Us

Akron Children’s Hospital is one of the largest independent pediatric hospitals in the U.S., and ranked among the best children’s hospitals by U.S. News and World Report. Our dedicated staff serves nearly 900,000 patient visits per year through our 2 hospital campuses and a large network of locations offering primary and specialty care.

We are leading the way to healthier futures for children and communities through expert medical care, research, and prevention and wellness programs. As a teaching affiliate of Northeast Ohio Medical University and other universities, we train new generations of pediatricians, specialists, nurses and pharmacists every year.

OUR PROMISES

  1. To treat every child as we would our own
  2. To treat others as they would like to be treated
  3. To turn no child away for any reason

We are seeking people who are committed to fostering a diverse environment in which patients, family and staff from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and personal experiences are welcomed, included and can thrive.


When you treat everyone like family.......it becomes so much more than a job.


It's your life.  Your love.  Your passion.  At Akron Children's Hospital, we're looking for motivated, inspiring people who are ready to make a difference in the lives of others.  From the nurse who sings his patient's favorite song, to the cook who smiles at every step and high-fives her team in the kitchen, it's what you do - and how you do it - that makes working at Akron Children's Hospital so much more than a job.
