Transformation Campaign Funding Priorities
Now is the time for our next evolution.
Several years ago, planning began to address the aging facilities at MetroHealth’s West 25th Street campus. It provided a chance to redesign the campus in innovative ways to meet the ever-changing needs of our patients and the programs that support our community.
This transformation will be nothing short of bold. It is a one billion dollar investment in our community, made on behalf of every citizen.
This transformation will be nothing short of amazing. It has earned the support of our City’s and County’s elected officials, health care and medical education partners, religious leaders, business leaders and the directors of community organizations working tirelessly on the health and wellness issues facing all of our residents.
And a community investment of this size and importance will only be made possible by a public-private partnership from across our community. MetroHealth has launched “For All of Us,” a five-year campaign to raise a minimum of $100 million in philanthropic support for core aspects of MetroHealth’s transformation – become our partner in our transformation.
