Statement of Values

Cleveland Clinic was established by visionary leaders who believed in simple, guiding principles. Six fundamental values form the foundation of the Cleveland Clinic's culture:

  • Quality. We maintain the highest standards and achieve them by continually measuring and improving our outcomes.
  • Innovation. We welcome change, encourage invention and continually seek better, more efficient ways to achieve our goals.
  • Teamwork. We collaborate and share knowledge to benefit patients and fellow caregivers for the advancement of our mission.
  • Service. We strive to exceed our patients’ and/or fellow caregivers’ expectations for comfort and convenience.
  • Integrity. We adhere to high moral principles and professional standards by a commitment to honesty, confidentiality, trust, respect and transparency.
  • Compassion. We demonstrate our commitment to world-class care by providing a caring and supportive environment for our patients, patients’ families and fellow caregivers.

The impact of philanthropy on the advancement of Lakewood Hospital has been apparent every day since the hospital’s founding in 1907. It started with Dr. & Mrs. C. Lee Graber and their gift of a home to house the hospital.

Since then, generous members of our community have been instrumental in the evolving development of Lakewood Hospital through their advocacy and support of Lakewood Hospital Foundation, which raises funds exclusively in support of the hospital’s patient programs and services.

Community support provides the hospital a valuable financial base and is directed toward initiatives such as free and subsidized care for the most vulnerable community members, new programs, education, leading-edge equipment and capital expansion.
