Summa St. Thomas Hospital - Background & History

Originally operated by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Augustine as a non-denominational hospital, Summa St. Thomas Hospital opened its doors to the Akron community in 1922. St. Thomas Hospital merged with Akron City Hospital to become Summa Health System in 1989.

St. Thomas Hospital was the first in the country to recognize the medical aspects of alcoholism as a disease and is the founding location of Alcoholics Anonymous. The hospital opened the nation's first alcoholism treatment ward and continues this longstanding dedication today.

In 2010, Summa Akron City and St. Thomas was awarded nursing's highest honor - Magnet recognition - by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Only six percent of hospitals in the United States are recognized as Magnet hospitals.
