MetroHealth Transformation

MetroHealth is nearing completion on The MetroHealth Glick Center and a reimagined main campus. The new 11-floor hospital will be LEED certified, and the campus will sit in the first EcoDistrict anchored by a healthcare system in the nation. Read on for more information about this ambitious community revitalization project. 

Fast Facts About the MetroHealth Transformation

  • The project is being financed by $946 million in hospital-revenue bonds that were sold in May 2017. No taxpayer money is being used. A $150 million fundraising campaign by The MetroHealth Foundation will support the campus’ expanded green space and community programs.
  • A new 1,500-space employee parking garage was completed in October 2018.
  • Construction of the new hospital began in April 2019 and is scheduled to be completed in October 2022.
  • The Transformation team includes 26 local firms, with 10 being minority- or women-owned businesses.
  • To learn about the jobs this construction will create and the income it will generate, read the full economic impact report from Cleveland State University. 
  • Nationally recognized for environmental sustainability through awards received from Practice Greenhealth.

Transformation Update · November 15, 2022

We are Open!

The MetroHealth Glick Center is now open and serving our community.

The years of challenging work defining the facility needs for our community, acquiring the funding, and designing/constructing a hospital for the future have all come to fruition.

Our patients moved into their new space on November 5, 2022. Please take a moment and watch this wonderful video of move-in day.

While significant and historic, let’s remember that The Glick Center is only the initial element in the wider MetroHealth Campus Transformation. More is coming with a new outpatient center, the demolition of “the towers,” which have been the identity of MetroHealth since the 1970s, and the creation of a 12-acre community park.

Beyond our campus, a neighborhood and community transformation will continue with new senior housing and other developments from MetroHealth, our partners and others drawn to the area.

This process always astounds me. It begins with a thought, an idea of a recognition of need. Then a vision is formed of how to address that need. And, finally, a physical solution – in this case, a new hospital – is constructed to fulfill this need and serve our community.

In our case, the thought, idea and vision came from MetroHealth President and CEO Akram Boutros, MD, FACHE. He entrusted that vision to me to carry out. Many thanks to the talented architects, engineers, consultants and builders who collaborated together to bring this vision to reality.

I am immensely grateful and honored to have been selected to lead this effort for MetroHealth and its community for the past eight years.

Sincerely,

Walter Jones
Senior Vice President, Campus Transformation
