Quest for Excellence
With an unwavering commitment to our community, we welcome the opportunity to care for patients from all walks of life. We believe that diversity of patients and staff enriches our environment and gives us an informed world view.
Since 1837, The MetroHealth System has cared for Clevelanders for their most basic health needs and through national crises such as the outbreak of tuberculosis and the polio epidemic. In 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) designated MetroHealth as an official Ebola Treatment Center, the only one in Ohio.
Today, MetroHealth is an integrated health system with an acute care hospital housing a Level I Adult Trauma and Burn Center, a skilled nursing facility and 20 locations throughout the community with more on the way. Annually, we handle more than one million patient visits including more than 100,000 in the Emergency Department, one of the busiest in the country. That’s an average of 274 Emergency Department visits per day. As a Level I Adult Trauma and Burn Center, we have full trauma surgical teams ready around the clock, ready whenever you need us.
We’re proud of our national recognition, some of which you can read about here. Recognition is nice, but our real motivation is our responsibility to our community. As the county hospital, an essential hospital, we welcome everyone who comes through our doors. And we do that in a fiscally responsible way so that the funds from Cuyahoga County taxpayers, a little less than 5 percent of our total operating revenue, earn a valuable return. In 2014, with Cuyahoga County’s $40 million, we delivered care valued at more than three times that amount (in excess of $120 million).
