Welcome to the AxessPointe Community Health Centers’ website!


AxessPointe Community Health Centers are federally qualified health centers (commonly called community health centers)  located in Northeast Ohio. Originally named Akron Community Health Resources, Inc.,  the first center was located in Akron, OH  and received funding in 1994 from the Bureau of Primary Health Care to establish the first federally qualified health center in Summit County, The Board of Directors expanded services  to Portage County in August 2008.

Since 1995:,

  • the number of sites have expanded to 5 sites (Akron, Kent, Barberton, and 2 in the downtown Akron area)
  • the services provided have expanded to include dental and diabetes education
  • the provider numbers have increased to 20 Physicians, 7 Nurse Practitioners, and 4 Dentists

During the last decade our services have increasingly become more patient centered and quality focused, resulting in improved patient health outcomes. We now partner with more community agencies  than ever to improve the ability of our patients to receive all the services available in our region to assist them in achieving their health goals.
