Your Co-Workers are wonderful. Usually a great manager that will work with you. A typical day usually starts out a little chaotic, but can usually be turned around rather quickly. If you are as lucky as I you will find yourself on a floor with a bunch of team players and that makes the night go much smoother.
Medical Office Coordinator (Current Employee) – Akron, OH – September 9, 2018
Management plays favorites with staff - some are able to do what they want and come and go as they please while others have to follow policy and procedures. Seems the harder your work the less you are appreciated.
OR Registered Nurse (RN) (Current Employee) – Akron, OH – August 13, 2018

Hospital environment - I loved my time at Summa Health System
Radiology Medical transcriptionist (Former Employee) – Akron, OH – July 19, 2018
I worked for quite a while at Summa Health System. I worked for wonderful doctors, about 12 of them and became very good at doing transcription. I was a trainer/proofreader for new transcriptionists and was part of the review committee that determined when a new employee was accurate enough to not be QA'd/proofread anymore.
When I worked in Surgical Services, I learned so much and worked with great people. Being a unit secretary was a quick paced, very interactive job and I loved it.
I have worked in the Summa network both in the hospital and as field staff. I love providing care for patients as well as their families. As of late there are structural changes that have both positive and negative affects on our staff.
After Hours Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Akron, OH – June 16, 2018
Summa affords many opportunities to their nurses and gives them autonomy and respect. The benefits are excellent and they promote health and wellness in the workplace and the community. You will work hard but have tremendous support from engaged managers and every resource at your disposal.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Akron, OH – May 31, 2018
Summa is a decent place, just like all work places there are some dislike able people. I found that there were some staff there didn't care about patient care and only about the money but that also every hospital
Medical Contractor/Abstractor (Current Employee) – Akron, OH – May 17, 2018
Any given week can change as far as duties and projects. Sometimes it take a lot of concentration, other projects are fillers until another real one begins. Although I have worked with Epic before, I entered a whole new territory of the software, along with tapping into other software that I had never heard of before my contractual employment with Summa Health System. Except for my project manager during previous project in Akron two years ago, I have never had a better manager than the one at Summa Health. She is very encouraging, supportive, fair-minded, driven, and you want to do your very best for her. The hardest part of the job is waiting for IT to give the go-ahead in accessing new software in order to begin working on another project. The most enjoyable part of the job is my co-worker, my manager, and the relaxed atmosphere.
An excellent manager, great co-worker, beautiful facility, a long-term project
The commute, low salary, and sometimes waiting an interminable amount of time for IT.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Barberton, OH – May 11, 2018
My bosses were never there for me and i was never fully trained. I was the only supervisor for over 6 months and they never offered me help until the end. The person they sent to help caused all kinds of problems with my staff and i told them i no longer want her there and they said i refused help and let me go for "poor work performances'. That was not the case and they just wanted her in that position because they were all friends and had worked together in the past.
In my department, management is great! Environment is wonderful to work at. The job can be stressful at times but what job isn't, right? The job has taught me to be precise and to pay attention to details because this determines an estimate of what insurance will cover and how much patient would have to pay out of pocket.
