The Summit Medical Group Foundation was built on the idea that everyone deserves a healthy tomorrow. This fundamental belief drives our 3-pillar mission of improving access to healthcare for the underserved in our community, educating and inspiring future healthcare providers and promoting the courage, confidence and emotional well-being of individuals and their families facing cancer.
The Foundation is fortunate to work with a cadre of volunteers and community partners to help bring this mission to life. Through collaborations and partnerships, and with the help of generous donors, the Foundation provides free medical screenings and healthcare education for food pantry clients and others in underserved communities, scholarships and mentorship programs for students interested in healthcare careers, and comfort programs for cancer patients and their families (such as music and pet therapy, mind-body programs, massage, etc.). Throughout the year the Foundation also holds backpack drives, toy drives, holiday meals and more for our neighbors in need.
The Foundation was established in 2013 by Summit Medical Group (SMG)—New Jersey’s oldest and largest private multispecialty medical group. This partnership allows the Foundation to engage the doctors and employees of SMG, working together to strengthen the community around us, building healthier tomorrows.
