The MetroHealth Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Founded in 1954, it supports The MetroHealth System's mission by funding programs and projects in patient care, scientific and clinical research, and medical education. We thank our donors who make so much possible for so many.
At its Annual Stakeholders Meeting, held on June 29, 2018, MetroHealth unveiled the exterior design of a new hospital planned for the West 25th Street main campus. The design includes a new 11-story hospital joined to the existing Critical Care Pavilion (CCP) and an abundance of green space for the community.
MetroHealth plans to break ground on the hospital in early 2019.
The MetroHealth Transformation will be completed in 2023. Green space will comprise nearly half of the 55-acre campus, up from the roughly 1-2 acres currently on the property.
In support of the Transformation, MetroHealth has launched a philanthropic campaign, For All of Us. The $100 million campaign will support community programs and development of expanded campus green space.
MetroHealth is committed to improving the health of its community and is leading a revitalization of the West 25th Street corridor. Plans include the world’s first hospital-led EcoDistrict, partnerships with public, private, nonprofit and civic entities, a housing incentive program to help employees live closer to work and enhancements to public transportation and infrastructure (the RTA MetroHealth Line). Learn more about our funding priorities, and meet the members of the Campaign Cabinet.
