MetroHealth Transformation

MetroHealth has begun construction on The MetroHealth Glick Center and reimagined main campus. The new 11-floor hospital will be LEED certified, and the campus will sit in the first EcoDistrict anchored by a health care system in the U.S. 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 $100 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.
  • MetroHealth receives a $32.4 million appropriation from the county, less than 3 percent of its annual operating revenue.
  • 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 · January 3, 2022

Welcome to a Monumental Year!

2022 is going to be historic around here.

We remain on schedule to open The MetroHealth Glick Center in October and welcome our first patients into this stunning new state-of-the-art medical center.

The construction team has rounded third and is speeding toward home. By May 1, the building will be “substantially complete,” which means construction will be done, except for a few final, finishing touches.

This gives us the late spring, the entire summer and early fall to install furniture and equipment, test (and retest) all the systems, practice operations in the building, and prepare in every way we can for move-in and opening.

Hospital employees are already reviewing and developing their work flows, procedures and processes. They will be training using virtual and hands-on simulations, so they’ll be ready to do their jobs and provide top-notch care on Day 1.

We’re also hard at work planning how we will safely and efficiently move patients from the old hospital into The Glick Center on that October day.

That’s a lot of preparation, cooperation and hard work to ensure this once-in-a-lifetime event is done right.

And I know it will be done right. Our employees are getting ready with the same passion and dedication that they bring to work every day. They know that our patients deserve something special. And they are going to deliver it this fall.

I am grateful for their devotion.
