To provide health care to the assisted living and full-service portions of our community, we turned to a nationally recognized leader in patient satisfaction: Centra. No other retirement community combines a full continuum of care with Centra's expertise.
Centra is a regional, non-profit healthcare system located in the heart of Central Virginia. With more than 6,000 skilled healthcare professionals, Centra provides comprehensive medical care in a variety of settings, including The Summit.

The Summit was created in partnership with The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Virginia–one of the largest faith groups founded on American soil, and a group that reflects the spirit and character that inspires our community. In fact, the concept for The Summit was modeled after four Continuing Care Retirement Communities operated by The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Virginia.

The extraordinary Jamerson Family YMCA is only a short five-minute walk away when you live at The Summit. This state-of-the-art facility houses two swimming pools, a whirlpool, saunas, indoor and outdoor walking tracks, five locker rooms, an older adults and teen center, and much more. The Y also houses Centra's Healthy Living Center, which provides clinical exercise, physical and massage therapy, rehabilitation, and lifestyle management programs. Seniors interested in fitness opportunities can go beyond the traditional weight room, with water fitness classes like Active Seniors, a 60-minute workout with shallow- and deep-water exercises, and a Combo Seniors class, which is a combination workout for seniors at any physical level. Classes for seniors are offered almost every day of the week. Of course, when you're a Summit resident, you also have the option of using The Summit's own fitness center, located right on campus. For more information, visit the The Jamerson Family YMCA website.
