Akron, Ohio-based Summa Health has announced a fundraising campaign with the goal of raising $75 million to support patient care and clinical quality, according to Cleveland.com.

Summa began the "Caring for You … Then, Now, Always" campaign in 2013. It has raised $60 million so far and only needs to raise an additional $15 million. Rennick Andreoli, the campaign chair, will lead the public phase of the campaign.

The contributions will go toward projects including facilities improvements and physician recruitment.
