Akron Children's Hospital Annual Report

2014 ANNUAL REPORT

The extraordinary journey to ordinary.

A jump in a puddle. A spin in a princess dress. An afternoon snack. A bedtime story.
We think little moments are a pretty big deal. That’s why Akron Children’s goes to great lengths
to help every child experience the extraordinary joys of ordinary days.
