Cleveland Clinic - 100 Great Hospitals in America | 2014

 Cleveland Clinic.

Cleveland Clinic operates more than 75 outpatient centers in northern Ohio and has 3,034 physicians and scientists.

It has also received Magnet recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center for nursing excellence.

The hospital encompasses three large research and education institutions. The Lerner Research Institute is home to laboratory-based, translational and clinical biomedical research conducted by 2,000 scientists and support personnel. The other two are the Education Institute, one of the nation's largest physician-graduate training programs, and Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University, which aims to help medical students become physician-scientists.

Cleveland Clinic is also home to numerous medical breakthroughs, such as the discovery that bariatric surgery controls diabetes, the first kidney surgery performed through a patient's navel, the first near-total face transplant and the first coronary angiography.

Cleveland Clinic sees more than 4 million patients each year. Its Office of Patient Experience, one of the first such departments in the country, ensures the physical, educational, emotional and spiritual needs of each patient are met.
