Akron Region Home to Strong Health-Care Network
A commitment to high-quality health care doesn’t end at the Akron city limits.
In addition to its facilities in Akron, Summa Health System operates hospitals in Barberton, Ravenna and Wadsworth, as well as a number of specialized service and wellness centers throughout the region. It also maintains an ownership stake in Summa Western Reserve hospital in Cuyahoga Falls, whose majority ownership was acquired in 2009 by a group of 200 doctors in the community. The group plans to build a 100-bed, $100 million replacement hospital in northern Summit County with a target opening date of 2012.
Akron General Health System operates Lodi Community Hospital in Medina County, as well as rehabilitation hospitals, specialized treatment centers and other medical services providers throughout the community.
The 118-bed Medina General Hospital has more than 1,000 employees, and its 44 departments provide a full range of services, including a 24-hour emergency room, a family birthing center that delivers more than 1,000 babies a year and high-tech surgical procedures, such as hip and knee replacements, and small-incision cataract surgery.
Its satellite facility, the Brunswick Medical Care Center, includes an urgent care center, physician offices, radiology services, and physical and occupational therapy services.
The county-owned Robinson Memorial Hospital in Ravenna in Portage County operates a 150-staffed bed facility and offers a full slate of inpatient and outpatient services, an urgent care facility, surgery center, imaging facilities and a network of physician practices throughout the county.
In 2009, the hospital opened a $21 million health facility in Streetsboro to consolidate a number of medical offices and bring several new services to the community.
