Located close to a rapidly growing suburban area, the hospital is actively participating in outreach to the new community.  The suburban Akron setting has an approximate population of 28,000 people and provides for easy access to the region’s many amenities including the local dining and shopping of Akron and Canton.  The major metropolitan attractions of Cleveland, which include a highly evolved cultural community, Indians baseball, Browns football, Cavaliers basketball, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the dining/night life of The Flats are about a 30-45-minute drive away.  The local area boasts excellent housing including waterfront living on a local chain of lakes and access to neighborhoods with excellent public and parochial schools.  Beautiful parks and local lakes further contribute to the high quality of life available in the area.
