Medical Staff Services

Medical Staff Services coordinates the credentialing and privileging of medical providers at Akron Children’s Hospital. Our medical staff is an integral part of our hospital system, appointed by the Board of Directors.

Every physician, dentist, podiatrist, psychologist, advanced practice nurse and physician assistant appointed to the medical staff is responsible for exercising professional judgment in the care and treatment of patients.

Akron Children’s medical staff recognizes and accepts its role and responsibilities to foster prevention, amelioration and cure of illness, disease and injury, and provide – or assist in providing – medical education and continuing medical education for medical staff members, other healthcare professionals, residents, medical students and nurses.
