Summa Health recognizes that health disparities exist in our community. And we are committed to transforming the care you receive.
Health disparities are preventable differences in disease that impact how frequently a disease affects a group, how many people get sick or how often the disease causes death. Health disparities can be related to gender, race or ethnicity, income, education, generation, sexual orientation or geography. The Summa Health Equity Center’s goal is to provide you with outstanding, quality care and identify, reduce and eventually eliminate health disparities to create health equity for all of our citizens.
The Summa Health Equity Center provides access to multiple programs, designed to provide the tools you need to sustain a healthy lifestyle. This community-based care will empower you to play a proactive role in your healthcare, through chronic disease management, nutrition, exercise and healthy lifestyle education services.
All patients are welcome; we accept most forms of insurance.
