The Summa Center for Health Equity

Play Sponsorship Video

In early 2012, the Summa Center for Health Equity at New Seasons opened its doors to offer a new model of care delivery to the community, empowering people to play a greater proactive role in their health. The Center plays a key role in Summa’s transformation of care.

Thirty percent of direct medical care costs for African American, Asian, Hispanics and other minority and disadvantaged populations is due to excess costs related to health inequalities. If those costs could be eliminated it would result in nearly $230 billion in savings. This staggering number has an effect on every community, including Akron.

Donate to the Center for Health EquityTo support its goal of eliminating health disparities in our communities, the Center developed events and programming to improve access and outcomes for its patients. Programming includes diabetes and nutrition classes, CPR training, exercise classes, and breast, prostate and cancer screenings.

The journey to eliminate health disparities is a long one, but Summa Health System is committed to its path.
