Akron Children’s Hospital is one of the largest pediatric healthcare systems in the United States. Its staff handles nearly 850,000 patient visits a year at two hospital campuses and a large network of locations offering primary and specialty care. Since its founding by a group of volunteers 125 years ago, Akron Children’s has been committed to delivering family-centered, pediatric care and to upholding  its three founding promises:  1) Treat others as we would like to be treated; 2) Treat every child as we would our own; and 3) Turn no child away for any reason.

That is exactly what one employee, Karen Ingram, patient service representative (PSR), has done. Three years ago, Ingram began collecting clothing for patients of Children’s Locust Pediatric Care Group. She stored her supplies in a closet in the medical office and opened it to families who needed extra support. More...
