Akron Children’s Hospital Considine Professional Building Addition

Providing New Amenities for Patients and Families

In March 2017, Welty and Akron Children’s Hospital broke ground on the 230,000 square foot addition to the hospital’s seven-story Considine Professional Building. The new building design will relocate most of the hospital’s ambulatory and subspecialty practices, and will connect to the main hospital and Kay Jewelers Pavilion with an elevated bridge. The project is being completed using Integrated Lean Project Delivery (ILPD), a system that encourages open and honest collaboration and works to eliminate construction waste, creating a successful outcome for all parties involved.

When construction is complete in Summer 2018, several departments will re-locate into the new space, including:

  • Adolescent medicine
  • Pediatric psychology and psychiatry
  • Pediatric gastroenterology
  • General surgery
  • Genetics
  • Infectious disease
  • Locust Pediatric Care Group
  • Vision Center
  • Outpatient lab and pharmacy
  • Pediatric rheumatology
