Summa Health System’s partnership with Crystal Clinic in forming the Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center brought together the experience and expertise of our two nationally recognized programs. The result: Northeast Ohio residents can receive the best orthopaedic care in a facility convenient for them.

Collaboration is playing a big part in the future of the department of orthopaedics. 

Our relationship with Austen BioInnovation Institute in Akron (ABIA) is growing. ABIA is focused on
patient-centered innovation and commercialization at the intersection of biomaterials and medicine. Thom Olmstead and Brian Davis discuss the collaborative approach between Summa Health System and ABIA, how it will lead to better patient outcomes and help establish the Akron area as a beacon of biomedical innovation.
