graphicTop-notch healthcare is one of the area’s strongest selling points. Residents have no less than seven nearby hospitals to serve them:

Akron General Medical Center

Barberton Citizens Hospital

Children’s Hospital Medical Center of Akron

Cuyahoga Falls General Hospital

Edwin Shaw Hospital for Rehabilitation

Summa Health System: Akron City Hospital and St. Thomas Hospital Wadsworth-Rittman Hospital

Summit County alone contains 2,582 beds and 1,238 physicians within its borders. Because we’re in the center of a healthcare hub, patients expect to find any specialty they need from world-class cancer treatment to comfortable birthing suites for new mothers. Such hospital power also attracts excellent support facilities, such as the healthcare center in Doylestown, which concentrates on long-term care and its accompanying physical therapy, podiatry, dental, psychiatric, dietician, speech therapy and nursing care needs.

Providing nursing care ranging from assisted living accommodations to total care are Healthaven, Manor Care, Alterra Sterling House, Pleasant View and Pebble Creek.

Patients also rely on solid customer service values within the medical community. In 1997, the Barberton-South Summit Chamber of Commerce recognized its city’s hospital as the Outstanding Business of the Year.
