COLUMBUS - State Senator Frank LaRose (R-Copley) recognized Akron Children's Hospital on the occasion of its 125th anniversary during today's Senate session. 

LaRose paid tribute to Akron Children's for its nationally recognized success in pediatric care, presenting a resolution of the Senate to Akron Children's CEO Bill Considine and Bob Trabucco of Sterling Jewelers, who serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors. 

"For 125 years, Akron Children's has earned a reputation for serving children with the highest level of professionalism and expertise," said LaRose. "As the father of three daughters, I rest easy at night knowing that a world-class children's hospital like Akron Children's is right in our backyard." 

Since its founding in 1890 as Akron Day Nursery, Akron Children's has grown into the largest pediatric healthcare system in Northeast Ohio, with 2 pediatric hospitals, 23 pediatrician offices and 80 locations. The hospital features an outpatient surgery center, neonatal intensive care unit, high-risk newborn labor and delivery units and a new emergency department. 

In addition to serving 800,000 children, teens and adults every year, Akron Children's offers more than 100 advocacy and education programs to promote pediatric health.
