About Summa Health

Location:

1077 Gorge Blvd, Akron, OH 44310, US

Mission Statement

To provide uncompromising quality care to terminally ill persons and those who love and care for them. Supportive services are delivered through cost-effective means promoting comfort, dignity, and the opportunity to live each day to the fullest."

Description

Summa Health Hospice is committed to treating the person and not the disease, focusing on quality-of-life issues affecting the patient's entire family. We use the combined knowledge and skills of a team of specially trained professionals that includes physicians, nurses, social workers, home health aides, spiritual caregivers and VOLUNTEERS. Hospice provides care and support to patients and their families in the comfort of their own home. While traditional medical care is designed to cure illness, the focus of hospice care is more comfort-oriented. Hospice neither hastens nor prolongs dying, viewing it as a natural process -- emphasizing quality of life, rather than length of life.
