Summa Health has a new doctor leading its ER, and he says his goal is to rebuild the department into a model both for patients and for medical students.

Dr. David Seaberg has close to three decades of experience in ERs, both as a physician and in developing residency programs.

He works for U.S. Acute Care Solutions, which last winter took over Summa’s ER following a controversial split with the long-time provider, Summa Emergency Associates. Shortly after that move, the ER lost accreditation for its residency program.
