Akron Children’s Hospital

Considine Professional Building Addition

To address expansion of the subspecialty practices in Akron and to consolidate functions from leased spaces with in the area, an addition to the Considine Professional Building at Akron Children’s Hospital was designed.

The seven-story Considine Addition, approximately 230,000 square feet in size, occupies the 2.25 acre site on the southeast corner of the hospital campus. An elevated bridge will connect the Considine Building with the main hospital and Kay Jewelers Pavilion.


The project includes various amenities to serve patients and families including an outpatient pharmacy, outpatient lab, a grab and go cafe, lactation rooms, and larger patient/family restrooms. This project also introduces a convenient, entrance-based check-in and registration process rather than in individual department registration locations.

Building on the success of the Kay Jewelers Pavilion project, LEAN concepts were incorporated into the design process. An Integrated Project Delivery contract is in place for the Considine Addition.
