My mother was a patient in the Health Care section of Summit Square for 3 weeks after falling and breaking her knee cap and wrist. She could not have received better care. Everyone was compassionate, caring, professional, and attentive. I would not hesitate to have either of my parents return to Summit Square should the need arise!! Thank you Summit Square for all your help and care for my Mom ❤️
I was hired on as a RMA. However the position that I was to be hired for was very misleading. I go in thinking I’m going to be used as a RMA, which is what I signed up for only to find out they use LPNs or RNs to administer the medicine. Which is fine but don’t hire people for one thing and use them for another! Other than that, it’s a nice place and nice people from what I gathered in the time I was there. Descent pay and benefits!
I always enjoy interacting with the people at Summit Square. To me, they are all just one big happy family. I have been able to interact on many levels: as a musician, as a contractor, as a relative of a resident, as a volunteer, and as a friend of many, many of their wonderful residents! I wish their management, their staff and their residents many blessings ahead! And thanks for EVERYTHING!
