Akron Children’s Hospital has expanded its practices into Lorain County.
As of Dec. 15, Akron Children’s is serving patients in two locations in Lorain County as a result of its partnership with Mercy Health-Lorain.
Mercy Health-Lorain, at 3600 Kolbe Road, Suite 209, will now be Akron Children’s Hospital Pediatrics-Lorain; and Mercy Health-Oak Point Primary Care and Specialty Care pediatrics office, at 5940 Oak Point Road, Suite E, is now Akron Children’s Hospital Pediatrics-Amherst.
Both of these locations will continue to have their original pediatricians – Dr. Rashmi Shekhawat and Dr. Alba Ortega Close – as well as additional Akron Children’s Hospital pediatrics providers.
On Jan. 5, Akron Children’s Hospital opened a third location at the current site of Mercy Health-Oberlin Primary Care pediatrics office at 224 W. Lorain St., Suite 100 in Oberlin.
In addition to these new practices, Akron Children’s also started construction this month on a new 23,000-square-foot health center in Amherst. The $7.5-million project sets on 4 acres on Cooper Foster Park Road, and is scheduled to be open in about a year.
