Statement of Mayor Dan Horrigan on Summa Health Staff Reductions


City of Akron Press Release
From the desk of Ellen Lander-Nischt
Published: 06-26-2017

"Summa Health has been a trusted community asset for 125 years. Throughout its history, Summa has consistently demonstrated its commitment to the health and wellbeing of our residents.

My staff and I have met multiple times with Dr. Deveny since his return to Summa this March. In our conversations, Dr. Deveny has been candid about the current operational challenges facing the organization, as Summa continues to take important steps to heal relationships and earn deeper confidence from the community.

A successful, independently-owned Summa Health is key to the ongoing economic and physical wellbeing of our city and the region. Just as our community depends on the care and services Summa provides for its health and welfare; Summa cannot succeed without the support and trust of the community. I have pledged to continue to work with Dr. Deveny and the Summa leadership team to do everything necessary to ensure the organization remains a strong and independent pillar for years to come.

I plan to meet with Dr. Deveny and the Summa leadership team again in the coming weeks to discuss how we can best partner in this critical effort."

– Mayor Dan Horrigan
