We want you to know that quality, while important when selecting products and services – such as cars, cell phones, Internet providers and restaurants - should also be important when selecting healthcare. Yes, healthcare.
You trust Akron General with your health. Why? Because with every dose of medication, with every test, procedure and surgery, we stand behind the belief that quality is more than a concept, it’s the only way to serve our patients.
We also believe that providing a quality healthcare environment means going above and beyond to make sure that our patients are cared for in a safe environment, our employees are well-trained, and that our patients are satisfied with their care.
Akron General is accredited by Joint Commission, also receiving its Gold Seal of Approval ™ for stroke care. We are Summit County's first Accredited Chest Pain Center, meeting strict criteria from the Society of Chest Pain Centers and Providers. Technology and healthcare delivery are essential to quality care. Akron General has been repeatedly named among America's Most Wired & Most Wireless Hospitals by Hospitals & Health Networks Magazine.
There’s not one perfect way to compare the overall quality of hospitals, but there are certain measures – both customer satisfaction and specific clinical benchmarks - that can be helpful when you need to choose the care that’s right for you.
