Summit Health is a prominent health care provider. The Berkeley Heights-based company has more than 340 locations in five states. CityMD, which Summit acquired two years ago, is a major urgent care provider in the New York metro area and has been growing quickly.
Jeff Alter took over as Summit Health’s CEO last October and is continuing the expansion path that his predecessor, Jeffrey LeBenger, was committed to.
In the latest edition of NJBIZ Conversations, Alter discussed those plans and how Summit intends to execute them. He also outlined the company’s philosophy of health care and offered an assessment of how the fight against the pandemic is going now.
“Not to jinx us, but I’ll knock on wood that we seem to be well beyond that surge we all had to deal with during the holiday season,” he said. “It put a burden, particularly on our urgent care network of CityMDs and we are beginning to see some normal volume come back to our Summit Health multi-specialty practices. People are trying to get the care that they need, and I think that’s a good sign.”
