Our mission is to empower a generation of confident parents to raise the healthiest kids.
Every pediatric care journey should start with a simple text.
On average, parents spend more than 3 hours a day managing non-scheduled medical needs for their children. With the uncertainty of after-hours care and a decline in providers practicing medicine, the current medical system is not set up to respond to the round-the-clock needs of caregivers.
Raising children takes a village and Summer Health brings experts into that support system. We are the first line of defense and an ongoing resource for families, offering around the clock access to experts for reliable advice over text and immediate relief.
Summer Health is here to radically simplify the healthcare experience for parents.
