Teaming Up to Enhance Our Care for Kids

A healthier Northeast Ohio is only possible through collaboration. We are excited to share this partnership news.

The MetroHealth System and University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital have collaborated to enhance pediatric services for young patients across the region.

Effective July 1, 2019, Rainbow began providing pediatric specialty care services for MetroHealth patients in the following disciplines:

  • cardiology
  • gastroenterology 
  • general surgery
  • nephrology
  • pediatric radiology
  • physical medicine & rehabilitation
  • urology

These services are offered by UH Rainbow physicians at MetroHealth’s main campus and complement our current pediatric services.

In addition, The MetroHealth System and UH Rainbow signed a memorandum of understanding to explore an expanded relationship that brings together the pediatric expertise of both health systems to enhance the pediatric care provided to the communities we serve.

“Collaboration in health care ensures that the best resources are available for our patients,” said Dr. Akram Boutros, president and CEO of MetroHealth. “Partnering with Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital will ensure the children we care for receive all that they need for optimal health outcomes.”
