Akron General Medical Center

Heart & Vascular Center

Akron, Ohio

The 64,000 SF renovation, expansion and construction included three new heart catheterization labs that are located next to the emergency department, increasing the speed of diagnosis and intervention for cardiac patients at the ER. In addition, a new 18-bed preparation and observation unit provides physician convenience and increased patient comfort and privacy.

Other newly renovated areas include cardiac testing, heart pacing and neurology. The new Heart & Vascular Center brings together physicians in cardiology, radiology, neurology, nephrology, pulmonology and cardiothoracic and vascular surgery with expertise in cardiovascular disease. This facility is conducive to multidisciplinary physician interaction and cooperation resulting in comprehensive quality care for patients.

Patients needing cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation receive treatment in a new space with a wall of windows, providing a panoramic view of the Akron city skyline. Also included are the new Eva P. Craig auditorium and physician education classrooms, offering state-of-the-art conference facilities. It also provides Akron General Medical Center, its physicians and patients with the most advanced facility of its kind to meet current and future clinical needs. The new Center was completed under budget and ahead of schedule.
