Kay Jewelers Pavilion Finishes Ahead of Schedule and Under Budget

Construction work on the Kay Jewelers Pavilion on the Akron Children's Hospital campus was recently completed months ahead of schedule, and well under the projected $180 million budget.

The expansion included: 

  • The 100-bed neonatal intensive care unit with private rooms for each of our tiniest patients and their parents. The current Level III NICU is nationally ranked but has outgrown its space.
  • High-risk delivery area that includes labor, delivery and recovery rooms to keep at-risk newborns close to the high-tech care they need.
  • An emergency department with enough room to meet our current and future patient volumes. Annual ER visits of more than 60,000 to the Akron campus strain the hospital’s resources in a facility built to accommodate 44,000.
  • The GoJo outpatient surgery center designed to accommodate a more than doubling of outpatient procedures in the past 20 years.
  • An enclosed concourse that takes patients and staff from the new 1,250-space parking garage to the new building and beyond into the existing hospital.

KHS&S, along with our joint venture partner ACP completed the interior framing/drywall, exterior panelization and exterior low-rise of the hospital tower.
