Community Partnerships Committed to Better Health
Summit’s partnerships are a part of our commitment to the patients and community we serve.
Summit Orthopedics was founded on a vision to bring comprehensive orthopedic care to the patients we serve. We know that every patient comes to us with a vision too; a vision that encompasses concerns and goals and very personal health objectives. Just as our physicians are committed to work with each of our patients to help them reach their goals for health, our practice is committed to organizational partnerships that support a healthier and more active community.
We contribute to the health of our community through medical assistance to a variety of groups and organizations that encourage fitness, engage in healthcare education, and support medical research. Summit is proud to cultivate a healthier, more active Twin Cities through partnerships with the following institutions and organizations:
- Minnesota Twins. Summit physicians are among the team of physicians caring for the Twins staff and players.
- Concordia University. Summit physicians serve as Official Team Physicians to student athletes, providing on-the-field medical support.
- Woodbury High School. Summit Orthopedics partners with Woodbury High School to improve the safety and wellness of their student athletes.
- University of Northwestern. Summit has been providing sports medicine expertise to the student athletes of the University of Northwestern St. Paul since 2011.
At Summit, we understand that the health of our patients is inseparable from the health of our community. Our vision for better health is realized through understanding and supporting the goal of our patients and the vibrancy of the active lifestyle lauded in the Twin Cities.
Summit is proud to have three physicians among Mpls.St.Paul Magazine’s 2018 list of Rising Stars.
