Summa Health System plans to add $350M in upgrades, expansion work

Akron, Ohio-based Summa Health System has revealed plans to inject $350 million into its facilities, including the construction of a new six-story tower on its main campus and improvements throughout other medical buildings and offices, according to an report.

The new building will serve as SummaAkronCityHospital's main entrance and house its women's health center. The extra space will also help the hospital transition most of its shared patient rooms into private ones, according to the report.

In addition, Summa Health System plans to erect a 50,000-square-foot medical building on its main campus and invest $22 million in additional improvements to make Summa Barberton Hospital more patient-friendly.

The expansion and upgrades are intended to position Summa hospitals to better compete against other local providers and to enhance patient care.
