Cleveland Clinic to close Lakewood Hospital, new outpatient center to be built

The Lakewood Hospital Association and the Lakewood Hospital Foundation have signed a letter of intent with Cleveland Clinic to replace 108-year-old Lakewood (Ohio) Hospital with a family health center.

The proposed plan, which must be approved by Lakewood City Council, includes creating a health and wellness campus. Cleveland Clinic will own and operate a $34 million, 62,000-square-foot family health center on the campus. The health center will feature a full-service emergency department and will replace 263-bed Lakewood Hospital.

Primary care and specialty programs concentrated on diabetes, geriatrics and cardiac care, among others, as well as radiology and lab services, will also be part of the new health center, according to a news release.

But for now, the intent is for Lakewood Hospital to stay open and operating until the Cleveland Clinic Avon (Ohio) Hospital opens late next year, the release reads.
