MetroHealth reveals details of nearly $1B capital project

Listen

Cleveland-based MetroHealth released details of its $945.7 million transformation plan for its main campus Jan. 8, according to Cleveland.com.

The health system's 52-acre campus will be renovated to include more green space, a pedestrian-friendly area and a transit-friendly zone. MetroHealth President and CEO Akram Boutros, MD, calls the redesigned main campus a "hospital in a park."

Features of the transformation include a new 10-story hospital, which will replace MetoHealth's aging patient towers, and a six-story outpatient pavilion, to be located south of the new hospital, according to Crain's Cleveland Business. In addition, the hospital will create a six- to eight-acre urban park, walkways throughout the campus for pedestrians, a new skilled nursing facility, a new parking lot underneath the patient pavilion, and covered indoor walkways so patients and visitors can avoid walking outside.

"The plan opens our campus to the neighborhood, making us more welcoming to patients, visitors and the general public," Dr. Boutros said, according to Crain's Business.
