Public gets first look at Akron Children’s Hospital in Warren


WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) — There’s a new healthcare option in Trumbull County.

Folks got their first look Saturday at Akron Children’s Hospital’s facility in Warren.

Located at the Market Place Plaza in Warren, it includes services such as cardiology, neurology and orthopedics.

The 5,000 square foot site features nine exam rooms, ultrasound, lab draw area, radiology room, echocardiogram room, nurses’ stations and physician charting area.

“The closer we can get to home, the easier we can make access to our services, the better care we can provide for our families. And that’s a privilege for us to be able to do that,” said Kathleen Rockhold, Operations Manager.

To ensure the new site meets everyone’s needs, the hospital sought out the public’s input on wheelchair access, waiting areas design and other decor options.

The location officially opens on Nov.17.
