Researchers at The MetroHealth InstituteAt the MetroHealth Rehabilitation Institute we believe that research is the critical gateway to outstanding patient care. Each of our research divisions engages in multiple ongoing research projects led by our physicians and scientists. When we innovate, make discoveries, and translate these discoveries to the standard of care, our patients benefit, not only regionally, but nationally and globally.

Our research programs at the MetroHealth Rehabilitation Institute, from translational basic sciences to implementation science, are growing exponentially, with our present research funding exceeding $50 million. The department of PM&R is currently the second-largest recipient of NIH funding among U.S. medical school PM&R departments (NIHRePorter).
