Cleveland Heights Behavioral Health Services Expansion
Treatment Works. People Recover. And We All Benefit.
MetroHealth is investing in a more efficient, targeted and thoughtful approach to address mental health, substance abuse and addiction.
Our Cleveland Heights Medical Center is pleased to announce the planned expansion of its behavioral health facilities and services to better serve the greater Cleveland area.
Cuyahoga County residents are suffering from mental illness or substance addiction in unprecedented numbers, and gaps in care cost our community dollars and lives.
Throughout the county, behavioral health care is a woefully inadequate patchwork system. And it continues to be a burden for those who are ill, for their friends and family, for police and justice system, and for the local economy.
Depression and other behavioral health problems are just that – health problems, not moral failings. And they need to be treated in a hospital setting with support from physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals. And with enough hospital beds to treat all those who need help.
MetroHealth is committed to:
- Improved health outcomes
- Improved social service and safety outcomes
- Access to Care (making more services available to more people)
- Improved economic outcomes
The Hospital Expansion
This new 110-bed Behavioral Health & Addiction hospital expansion to our existing Cleveland Heights Medical Center will address the following challenges our patients face:
- Bipolar Disorders
- Dual Diagnosis
- Elderly with Depression
- Mood Disorders
We All Benefit
Strengthening Cuyahoga County’s efforts to treat these patients will have cascading benefits.
- Efficient and effective behavioral health treatment will save significant dollars.
- People who get proper treatment will be healthier and better able to hold jobs and reach their full potential.
- An investment in comprehensive behavioral health services will decrease pressure on the adult and juvenile justice systems.
