Come celebrate with Akron General!
Born out of a need, and still here fulfilling a need for our community, we opened our doors in 1914 as Peoples Hospital. Throughout the next century, Peoples Hospital became Akron General Health System and took its place as a leader in a community that is committed to quality life for all of its citizens.
In good times and bad, in crisis and in plenty, especially between the ebb and flow of the rubber industry and changes that have taken place during the time since, Akron General has remained a partner in caring for our community. Today, as in the past, we are committed to service, excellence, and inclusiveness but with an even stronger focus on community involvement and wellness. Here we share the story of a great institution within a great community.
Experience the growth of Akron and Akron General from then until now and imagine with us, what we will be together from today into the future.
A Celebratory Gala!
Our Centennial celebrations will culminate with a Gala honoring a century-long tradition of caring for our community.
