Executive Summary

In 2006, seeking to advance patient care and consolidate its existing cancer treatment operations, Summa Health System and Signet embarked on a development partnership to create a new, state-of-the-art oncology care center on its main campus in downtown Akron, Ohio. This 72,000-square foot facility was delivered in just under fifteen months and represents one of the hospital’s premier Centers of Excellence.

Project Details

Signet was selected from a group of six developers to partner with the hospital and provide the best approach for achieving the vision and goals established for the project. Signet issued low-cost, private placement bond financing as capital for the project and entered into a lease-leaseback arrangement with the hospital for the new facility.
