2015 Community Benefit Report

Celebrating 150 years of moving medicine forward

University Hospitals demonstrates its commitment to the community by addressing our neighbors’ most pressing health-care needs. In 2015 alone, UH contributed $275 million in community benefit – and over $2.2 billion in the last decade, as part of our 150-year history of giving. In fact, the value of our community benefit set a record in 2015.

Read how UH has improved community health across a population of all ages – from our youngest patients to senior citizens – in underserved communities and across the region through its continuum of care. UH demonstrates its commitment to the health of expectant mothers, infants and children through its health-care delivery and community outreach, as well as through a $12.8 million grant from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation to form one of the first pediatric accountable care organizations. See how UH meets health-care needs now by providing the only east-side Level I adult trauma unit in Cleveland, joining the pediatric Level I trauma unit at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, as well as primary care through its Medical Access Clinic. The physical, mental and social well-being of senior citizens is also served through UH community outreach.

The future of UH community benefit will continue to serve the under-represented in society with continued education, training and research of UH health-care providers. The UH 2015 Community Benefit Report shows that the UH health-care system is dedicated to the delivery of the finest quality care, the best care experiences and the highest care value, at every stage in life, to fulfill our mission: To Heal. To Teach. To Discover.
