Community Benefit & Diversity

The Community Benefit and Diversity department leads efforts to address health disparities and other important community needs, and to raise awareness of health and healthcare issues affecting the communities served by Summa Health System.

Engaging the Community

This innovative department is dedicated to providing wellness and educational tools, facilitating economic development programs, developing community partnerships and communicating Summa’s benefit to the community. We also engage the community and Summa's workforce within the system and throughout the community.

We are excited to present the Summa Health System Community Benefit Report!

Summa is inspired by the inherent philanthropic belief that we can have a transformational impact on the lives of those we serve. Our community benefit report illustrates only a portion of Summa's philanthropic commitment to Northeast Ohio. Our community health programs, community building efforts, charity care and in-kind contributions are all focused on stimulating better health in Northeast Ohio by emphasizing wellness and prevention.
