Summa Support Services
Summa Health System’s Support Services provide a full range of supplementary care for injuries, surgeries or disease recovery and treatment. Our highly-trained professionals, including our highly regarding nursing staff, strive to focus on meeting the needs of the individual patient whether it is dialysis, infusions, imaging, lab services, pain management, rehabilitation, therapy, wound care, or patient education.
Through the commitment of our nurses who have consistently exceeded patients’ expectations, Summa Health System has achieved Magnet status at Summa Akron City and St. Thomas Hospitals and re-designated with Magnet status at Robinson Memorial Hospital, an affiliate of Summa Health System. Only 7% of hospitals nationwide earn this “gold standard” of care.
