Our facilities are fundamental to the care we provide and shape the way our patients, visitors and caregivers experience Cleveland Clinic. We are intentional about creating healing environments and incorporate best practices from leading green building frameworks in our own design standards to promote well-being and sustainability. We incorporate elements that support comfort and health, such as daylighting, temperature controls, sound levels and music, ergonomic furniture, views of nature, artwork, air and water filtration, indoor plants and healthy building materials. Other green building initiatives include sourcing products with environmental certifications and using local suppliers.

Enterprise Growth

Enterprise Growth

Expanding our footprint enables us to serve more patients, enhance care delivery and meet current and future community healthcare needs. Cleveland Clinic is committed to growing strategically through mergers and acquisitions, organic growth and digital tools to enhance access to our model of care while stewarding resources. Some of our projects in 2022 included:

Neurological Institute Building

Site preparation progressed in 2022 for our new 1 million-square-foot Neurological Institute building at main campus, which will provide inpatient, outpatient, imaging and surgical services in an environment specifically designed around the unique needs of people with neurological conditions. Built with leading edge technology, the building will house a sleep lab, pharmacy, rehabilitation gym and blood analysis labs, and will be designed for accessibility, flexibility, distance health and discovery. Through this project, neurological caregivers and services will come together under one roof to enhance collaboration and patient care. The new Neurological Institute building is currently scheduled to open by late 2026.

Cole Eye Institute Expansion

On May 20, 2022, we held a groundbreaking ceremony for new Jeffrey and Patricia Cole Building, which will add 150,000 square feet to our Cole Eye Institute building. The new building will be combined with renovations to our existing 130,000-squarefoot Cole Eye Institute building to create an integrated eye center that will deliver advanced care, research and education. Features will include an ophthalmic surgical center with 12 operating rooms, three refractive surgery procedure rooms and 50 eye exam rooms. The expansion is expected to be complete at the end of 2025, with patient care ongoing during construction.

Middleburg Heights Family Health Center

Converted from a long-vacant retail space, our 93,000 square-foot Middleburg Heights Family Health Center expands access to care and supports economic activity. Nearly 200 employees work at the facility—which has 168 exam rooms and 12 treatment rooms—and provides a wide range of medical services, including specialty and primary care, a radiology center, urgent care, a lab, Cleveland Clinic’s first drive-through pharmacy and physical and occupational therapy spaces.

Additionally, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s new Cancer Center welcomed its first patients in November 2022. The 10-story tower brings an integrated approach to diagnosing and treating cancer based on the needs of people in the United Arab Emirates and region. We also completed the expansion of Cleveland Clinic Weston’s top hospital floor in 2022, adding 28 beds for high acuity patients in response to increasing demand for Southeast Florida.

Mentor Hospital

Mentor Hospital

Opened in July 2023, Mentor Hospital is Cleveland Clinic’s 23rd hospital and its first in Lake County. It includes 34 inpatient rooms, 19 emergency beds, 23 outpatient rooms, four operating rooms and a helipad to facilitate the immediate transport of patients who need higher-acuity care. Services include digestive diseases and general surgery, urology, heart and vascular, orthopedics and pulmonary care, as well as lab and imaging services. Mentor Hospital’s innovative virtual platform also enables specialists throughout Cleveland Clinic to consult with patients, and each patient room includes a high-resolution camera and TV to facilitate Telehealth consultations.

We are pursuing LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for Mentor Hospital, and some green building features of the hospital include:

  • A 330kW solar system, which is forecasted to produce 418,500 kWh of electricity annually.
  • Electric vehicle charging stations and covered bike parking.
  • Bird-friendly glass.
  • Stormwater retention and management.

Cleveland Clinic London Hospital

Cleveland Clinic London Hospital

Cleveland Clinic London Hospital opened on March 29, 2022. The hospital has 184 inpatient beds, including 29 ICU beds and eight operating theaters, and a 41-bed neurological rehabilitation ward. More than 1,300 caregivers support patient care, with a focus on heart and vascular disease, digestive disease, neurosciences and orthopedics.

Modelling sustainable practices in healthcare and the communities in which we operate is an ongoing priority across our global footprint. We renovated and redesigned 33 Grosvenor Place through adaptive reuse to create a state-of-the-art hospital environment, recycling 98% of the original building’s materials. 33 Grosvenor Place produces some of its own electricity through a rooftop solar panel array and some of its own heat and power through a combined heat and power plant. We are currently in the process of pursuing LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification and achieved a BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology) rating of “Very Good” for Cleveland Clinic London Hospital.

Art Program

Visitors can discover how art and architecture at Cleveland Clinic create unique healing environments with the free app ar+. Interact with dynamic media from any location, explore digitally curated exhibitions in the new Virtual Viewing Room or experience augmented reality (ar) at six of the twelve featured locations.

Cleveland Clinic’s world-class art and architecture app now features 14 locations and 580 artworks by 182 artists. The Art Program continues to expand the app with images, text, media and additional locations. The Virtual Viewing Room presents thematic exhibitions that investigate pertinent topics, allowing users to learn more about specific artworks from artists and curators directly.

Daily Art Break

Since the beginning of the pandemic, members of the art program have shared a Daily Art Break with caregivers to close out the day. The emails and posts include a curated collection artwork with a caption calibrated to the season, weather or mood of the day. Intended to offer a transition from workday pressures, the art breaks offer moments of beauty, levity, unity or simply an opportunity to pause while discovering the breadth of the art collection. To enroll, caregivers can send a request to ccartprogram@ccf.org from their Cleveland Clinic email address.

Colorful drawing of tulips

In honor of Nurses Week, William J. O’Brien created a series of cheerful drawings in gratitude to caregivers on the front line during COVID-19. Cleveland Clinic Art Program collaborated with the artist to bring the hope-inspiring images directly to patients and caregivers through limited edition prints and digital platforms.
