UH centralizes physician practices in northern Akron region

FAIRLAWN - Residents of Fairlawn and surrounding communities will soon have access to University Hospitals (UH) physicians and services close to home at the new UH Fairlawn Health Center. With an investment of more than $4 million, UH will transform 35,000-square-feet of an existing office building located at 3800 Embassy Parkway just off Interstate-77.

UH Fairlawn Health Center, scheduled to open in late summer of this year, will offer urgent care, radiology services, primary care, pediatrics as well as specialty care including dermatology and gastroenterology. UH physician practices that include primary care, family medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics will be relocating to the building. The outpatient center enables University Hospitals to centralize services in the northern Akron area at one convenient location.

“This new health center enables us to bring our services together in a location that creates greater access for residents of Fairlawn and the greater Akron region,” says Richard Hanson, President, UH Community Hospitals and Ambulatory Network. “Additionally, a patient’s care at UH Fairlawn Health Center will be fully integrated and coordinated with the expert care provided throughout the University Hospitals health system.”

With the addition of UH Fairlawn Health Center the UH health system offers 14 hospitals, 26 health centers and more than 100 physician locations throughout Northeast Ohio. UH also has outpatient health centers in nearby Medina, Streetsboro and Twinsburg.

UH, with its nationally recognized academic medical center – UH Case Medical Center – provides access to clinical research, leading-edge technology, innovative practices and initiatives. In addition, patients have access to internationally recognized centers of excellence such as UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital and UH Seidman Cancer Center.
