In 2016, a chance CT scan of Donovan Stringer’s abdomen detected a tumor on his liver. Fortunately, as a member of a national children’s hospital network, Akron Children’s had a protocol in place to attack it. Later this month, the nine-year-old Warren resident and his parents will travel to Washington DC to advocate for these and other services that save the lives of children every day.

These videos focus on different aspects of the design and construction of the new 200-million building expansion at Akron Children's Hospital. When complete, the project will feature a new medical tower with a neonatal intensive care unit, emergency room and outpatient surgical suites; a 1,200 space parking deck; and an expanded Ronald McDonald House. Construction is expected to be completed in 2015.
