Summa’s New Tower Almost Ready

Akron Beacon Journal/Ohio.com

Summa Health’s new “front door” — a seven-story tower that has been under construction since 2017 — is nearly ready for its debut. Patients will officially be seen in the new tower beginning May 28. The Akron health system is hosting an invitation-only reception Wednesday, followed by a community open house from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

The $220 million, seven-story building will become Summa’s new front door for its Akron City Hospital campus, moving the main entrance from Arch Street to 141 N. Forge St. It is accessible off state Route 8 via the Perkins Street exit or directly off East Market Street or Fountain Street near the University Park YMCA.  The new tower is next to the hospital’s emergency department and same-day surgery center. The same-day surgery center and pre-admission testing will relocate to the tower.
