Physicians may occasionally be called to attend deliveries to evaluate and mange newborns who present with problems after birth. No known high-risk deliveries are performed at this hospital. Those that present in preterm labor or with high risk complications are quickly transferred to Summa's main hospital in Akron. After-hours call and Saturday office hours are shared between providers. Calls only reach the physician after being screened by our excellent after-hours nurse triage phone line which handles more than 90% of the calls.
This is a busy existing practice, so we welcome new graduates or established providers to step into a practice that they can continue to develop and grow.
Our offices follow standard hospital-based policies, while retaining the local culture of each practice. Our physicians enjoy the use of EPIC as a system-wide integrated electronic health record.

Research shows that they improve quality, the patient experience and staff satisfaction, while reducing health care costs.
