Cleveland Clinic Overview
The Cleveland Clinic is a multispecialty academic hospital center that integrates clinical and hospital care with research and education. With more than 6,000 beds, Cleveland Clinic is one of the largest and most respected health systems nationally and internationally. The Cleveland Clinic's main campus consists of 41 buildings on 160 acres. It also operates 18 family health and ambulatory surgery centers in surrounding communities. In addition, Cleveland Clinic has affiliated facilities in Florida, Nevada, Canada, Abu Dhabi and London.
The Cleveland Clinic was founded in 1921 in Cleveland, Ohio by four renowned physicians with a vision of providing outstanding patient care based upon the principles of cooperation, compassion and innovation. The founders wanted to form a group practice in which individual members would share clinical expertise and specialization and would dedicate themselves to the education of future medical practitioners. It would also be a place where innovations in medical procedures and practices would be encouraged through basic and applied research activities. The four founders also envisioned a corporate structure that would support their vision. It involved the oversight and direction by a separate board of community trustees in matters unrelated to patient and medical practice issues - all of this in the spirit of upholding the primary value, "Patients First."
Attentiveness to innovative research, education, and high quality treatment is of key importance. The Cleveland Clinic most recently recorded 5.9 million total visits, serving some of the highest acuity patients who come from across the United States and 147 countries around the world. As one of the largest and most respected hospitals in the country, Cleveland Clinic is consistently named as one of the nation’s best hospitals in U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Hospitals” survey, with a heart and surgery program that has been ranked No. 1 each year since 1995.
