About Cleveland Clinic

Located in Cleveland, Ohio, Cleveland Clinic is a nonprofit, multi-specialty academic medical center that integrates clinical and hospital care with research and education. Cleveland Clinic was founded in 1921 by four renowned physicians with a vision of providing outstanding patient care based upon the principles of cooperation, compassion and innovation. Today, Cleveland Clinic is one of the largest and most respected hospitals in the country. U.S.News & World Report consistently names Cleveland Clinic as one of the nation’s best hospitals in its annual “America’s Best Hospitals” survey.

“Patients First”
“Patients First” is the guiding principle of Cleveland Clinic. It places prominence on patient care, comfort and communication in every activity we undertake. It affirms the importance of research and education for the improvement of patient care. “Patients First” also demands a relentless focus on measurable quality. At Cleveland Clinic, we believe that transparency is an essential part of quality. That’s why Cleveland Clinic was the first major medical center to publish annual outcomes and volume information for its medical specialties. By setting standards, collecting data and analyzing results, Cleveland Clinic puts patients first through improved outcomes and better service.

Group Practice Model
Cleveland Clinic is one of a few truly integrated care delivery systems in the country. Structured as a group practice, the staff physicians are salaried employees and are not in private practice. They pool their wisdom and expertise for the benefit of the patient and the community.

Beginning in 2007, Cleveland Clinic reorganized into clinical institutes centered on organ systems to better compliment the group practice model. These institutes foster an environment that maximizes coordination, improves patient access to multiple specialties, allows experts to act as a dynamic team, and results in optimal treatment for patients and potential cost savings for employers.
