Ombudsman Office

The Ombudsman is the liaison between Cleveland Clinic and the patient in resolving problems that may arise during the course of treatment. We recommend that patients first attempt to address their concerns with the department in which the problem occurred. If you do not reach a resolution with the person providing your care, we encourage you to contact the department manager or supervisor.

If these attempts are unsatisfactory, please call our Ombudsman Office at 216.444.2544 from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (Monday - Friday), or you can leave a message anytime. Presenting a complaint does not in itself compromise a patient’s future access to care.
