Summa Health ups fundraising goal to $100M

Akron, Ohio-based Summa Health has extended its fundraising goal to $100 million after surpassing its original goal of $75 million. 

The health system will invest funds from the campaign, called "Caring for You … Then, Now, Always," in the local community. The funds have supported several projects, including a new patient tower on the Akron campus and significant renovations on the Barberton (Ohio) campus.  The system is also planning a new, 60-bed behavioral health pavilion on the Akron campus. 

George Strickler, chair of the Summa Health board of directors, and his wife, Alice, donated $1 million to the fundraising campaign. 

"The extraordinary success of the campaign is a tribute to the tradition of community support that has benefited Summa Health for more than 125 years," Cliff Deveny, MD, Summa Health president and CEO, said in a March 16 news release. "I am grateful to the Stricklers for inspiring the extension of our campaign with their dedicated leadership and generous commitment to Summa Health."
