Cleveland Clinic receives $8M gift to support community initiatives

Cleveland Clinic will receive donations totaling $8 million from Jones Day and the Jones Day Foundation, which will be used to establish initiatives for community health workers and legal-medical aid.

The initiative for community health workers will have people knowledgeable in healthcare work with people in the community and facilitate getting them the care they need, according to a Nov. 18 news release.

"Cleveland Clinic is a global healthcare leader that seeks to provide opportunities for better, healthier lives for the members of the communities it serves," said Chris Kelly, a Jones Day partner based in the firm's Cleveland and New York offices. "Like Cleveland Clinic, Jones Day has a long-held belief in the transformative potential of giving back to the communities in which we live and work. The community health worker program is intended to make a tangible difference for our neighbors who need and deserve access to health resources."

The legal-medical aid initiative will be in partnership with The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland, which will help individuals and families needing legal assistance involving healthcare. Legal aid lawyers will work with clinicians, case managers and social workers in the partnership.

The gift will also honor Patrick McCartan in the front lobby with the Patrick F. McCartan Centennial Gallery. Mr. McCartan was a leader of Jones Day and a former member of Cleveland Clinic's board of trustees.
