Vital for Life

At Summa Health, we pride ourselves on improving the overall health of our community. This mission is accomplished through exceptional care, one patient at a time. One way we have celebrated our achievements is through our multimedia advertising campaign.

“Vital for Life” tells real people’s experiences, using their own voices. The campaign features a variety of heartwarming stories from across different service lines and local communities. These compelling stories are authentic, moving, and ultimately, life-affirming. They demonstrate the importance that Summa Health played in their recovery and that Summa Health has the ability to transform and save lives. Because that is what we do… we help families stay together… we provide care that never quits… we create a healthier community.
