- General Info:
- Founded in 1914 as Peoples Hospital, Akron General Medical Center has grown to a 511-bed, 26-bassinet, adult, tertiary-care, not-for-profit teaching hospital. Today, it is staffed by more than 1,000 physicians, 3,400 healthcare professionals and support staff and 550 volunteers who serve a population of more than 1.2 million people throughout Summit, Medina, Portage, Stark and Wayne Counties of Northeast Ohio. Our mission is to improve the health and lives of our patients and community. As a major teaching hospital, Akron General trains future physicians through 11 high-quality medical residency programs. Akron General is a teaching affiliate of the Northeastern Ohio Universities Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy, a State of Ohio facility that serves as the Medical College of the University of Akron, Kent State University and Youngstown State University. Akron General Medical Center has repeatedly been named "Akron's Most Preferred Hospital for Overall Quality and Image" by National Research Corporation. Technology is becoming increasingly important in the practice of medicine. Akron General is using information and technology every day to improve patient care. Physicians now have wireless access inside the hospital and from their offices to patient charts and test results - in real time. That means they are able to spend more time where they prefer to be - with their patients.
