Summa celebrates in the incredible work accomplished by our nurses throughout our hospitals every day, and the excellence of their “Care Beyond” that consistently exceeds our patients’ expectations.
Through research, clinical care practices and active partnering with our physicians and other healthcare professionals, our nurses practice at the forefront of their profession.
Thanks to our nurses' high level of patient-focused dedication and commitment to superior care, in 2011, 2016, and again in 2021, we achieved Magnet® status at Summa Health System – Akron Campus. Summa Health System – Barberton Campus achieved initial designation in 2020. Only 9% of hospitals nationwide are honored Magnet® status. We are proud that our nurses have achieved this “gold standard” of care.
