About Summer Crawford, APRN

Summer Crawford, APRN, is a certified advanced practice nurse practitioner who serves Norman Regional as a hospitalist, caring for hospitalized patients. She said she chose to become a hospitalist because acute care can be a difficult specialty due to the severity of patients’ conditions.

Summer’s special interests include:

  • Stroke management
  • COPD exacerbation
  • Heart failure management
  • Diabetes management including DKA
  • COVID management
  • Respiratory failure

“I hope all my patients feel trust, kindness, empathy and compassion,” she said.

Aside from medicine, Summer enjoys spending time with her children, traveling and gardening.
