MANSFIELD - Akron Children's Hospital is making a large investment in the greater Richland county area this month with the grand opening of their Mansfield Health Center on March 26th. 

The facility is located at 1029 S. Trimble Road in Mansfield and will bring together nearly a dozen of the most in-demand specialty care practices and rehabilitation services under one roof. The building is 32,400 square-foot and will house an Urgent Care, a pediatric primary care practice, pediatric specialists in allergy/immunology, cardiology, gastroenterology, hemostasis and thrombosis, nephrology, orthopedics, and urology. The new facility will also host diagnostic tools such as cardiac ultrasound, x-ray, echocardiography, and EKG.

Akron Children's Maternal Fetal Medicine Center will also be housed there, caring for women during high-risk pregnancies. Radiology and Laboratory Medicine will be represented as well, with radiology and lab technicians taking child-friendly approaches to treatment. Lastly, rounding out the lineup is rehabilitative services. Akron Children's new location will host physical, occupational and speech therapists to help children recover from surgeries, cancer treatments, and traumatic injuries. 

This new facility is the first of three such locations opening for ACH this year, with the other two opening in Summit and Stark counties and a fourth in planning phases for Portage County.

The facility will consolidate services currently offered at practices on Balgreen Drive in Mansfield and 4th Street in Ontario, bringing those patients together into a convenient, all access location.

A public open house will take place Saturday, March 23rd from 9:30 A.M. to Noon. That event is free and will include family entertainment, a scavenger hunt for kids, a raffle for the parents and refreshments. The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place during the event at 11 AM.

The urgent care portion of the facility will open for business on Monday, March 25th and the rest of the facility will follow suit the next day, Tuesday, March 26th.
