  • Hasenstab Architects designed a welcoming space for the Portage Health Center at Akron Children’s Hospital in Ravenna, Ohio.

    Hasenstab Architects designed the new, 29,500 square foot Akron Children’s Hospital Portage Health Center that brings together pediatric services previously offered at other locations in the area into a single location. The new outpatient facility combines pediatric primary care with Quick Care, specialty care and rehabilitation services.

    The lobby features a welcome center desk for patient check-in, as well as self-serve check-in kiosks. The open waiting area is situated to take advantage of the large expanse of windows and natural light. A variety of seating options for children and adults, as well as a mini-ball machine, provides a comfortable place to wait for appointments.

    Akron Children’s Hospital Pediatrics (ACHP) occupies a 9,500-square-foot primary care area at Portage Health Center that includes 21 exam rooms, physician and staff work areas, charting stations and two audio/visual testing rooms. The primary care space also supports Quick Care and has access to a blood draw/lab.

    Rehabilitation services are supported by gym space for exercise, sensory integration, and gross motor skills, as well as an indoor track for walking, running, rehab bikes and tricycles. Six therapy rooms were also included for various rehabilitative functions.
