  • We offer Level III Obstetric Service, the highest level of care available in obstetrics, and our specially trained staff, maternal-fetal medicine specialists and anesthesiologists are available 24-hours a day.
  • Our practice was instrumental in coordinating the complex delivery of Ohio’s first sextuplets, as well as the newsworthy mono mono twins.
  • We were the first local hospital to partner with Akron Children’s Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, so babies who need special care can stay close to mom.
