Summa Women’s Health Institute
Specializing in Health Care Needs of Women
You are a woman with changing needs. At Summa Health System, we provide you with comprehensive women's health services during every stage of your life.
Our Women's Health services include:
Akron Area Women's Health
Whether you are welcoming a baby into the world, scheduling your annual mammogram, concerned about bone loss during menopause or searching for answers and support for sexual health issues, Summa is your resource in the Akron/Canton area for all of your changing health needs.
We have made a dramatic impact on women's health care in the communities we serve. For example, in 2010, Summa developed the Maternal-fetal Opiate Medical Home Care (MOMH) program for opiate addicted mothers and babies. Due to the complex and underserved needs of this group of mothers and babies, Summa established new practices, communications and skills with their outpatient colleagues in the areas of addiction medicine, perinatology, neonatology, social work, health services, community drug board and legal service providers.
Women's Health Safety & Quality
The program has earned several best practice awards from the Ohio Patient Safety Institute (OPSI) for incorporating regional and national patient safety benchmarks, demonstrating a clear focus on improving patient safety in a health care setting, and most importantly, being innovative and unique to the Ohio health care market.
Our team of women's health experts can provide compassionate, thorough care of your unique health concerns throughout any stage of your life. To explore our surgical services further, request an appointment online or call us at (888) 619-7787.
