A Tradition of Research and Excellence
From its beginning as Cleveland’s first academic medical center in 1837, MetroHealth has been dedicated to the science of improving health care. MetroHealth is a major teaching hospital for Case Western Reserve University, one of the nation’s leading research universities, and all of our active physician staff hold faculty appointments at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.
We have established Centers of Excellence that integrate basic research in molecular, cell, and whole organ physiology, with genetic epidemiology and clinical research to identify the
genetic and environmental causes of disease.
Our centers are comprised of basic scientists, clinical scientists, and epidemiologists and are extensively funded by agencies such as the National Institutes of Health and the American Heart Association. The integrated approaches of our Centers of Excellence lead to unique and novel diagnostic and therapeutic modalities.
Our ongoing commitment to academic and clinical excellence, coupled with extensive capabilities in biotechnology, bioengineering, genetics, and population science, will ensure that MetroHealth continues to grow as one of the major research and training centers in the country.
MetroHealth is best known for its “bench to bedside” approach to research. Our interdisciplinary research teams build on MetroHealth’s mission by taking research from the laboratory to the clinical setting, where it directly benefits patients.
With more than 80,000 square feet dedicated to research in the Charles H. Rammelkamp, Jr., MD, Center for Education and Research, MetroHealth is partnered with Case Western Reserve University in key areas of scientific discovery and biomedical technology.
