Welcome to the AxessPointe Community Health Center website!


In 1995, Akron Community Health Resources, INC became the first Community Health Center in Summit and Portage County. Through the years,

  • our number of sites have expanded to 3 sites (Akron, Kent, & Barberton)
  • our services have expanded to include dental and diabetes education
  • our provider numbers have increased to 5 Physicians, 7 Nurse Practitioners, 3 Dentists, and 2 Dental Hygienists

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.
