CLEVELAND -- Susan V. Juris has been named President of University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center effective Jan. 2, 2012. 

As President, Juris will lead the strategic direction, growth and overall performance of the full-service, 144-bed hospital which opened in Beachwood, Ohio, early this year.

“Ms. Juris is an enthusiastic leader with proven strengths in health care operations, service integration and marketing,” said Richard A. Hanson, President of UH’s Community Hospitals and Ambulatory Network. “Throughout her impressive career, she has built high-performing teams and achieved success through strong relationships with employees and physicians.”

Prior to this position, Juris served as Vice President, Patient Access for UH Physician Services. For five years prior to that, she was President of UH Extended Care Campus, where she was responsible for multiple service lines.

Juris joined UH in 1999 as Vice President of UH Home Care Services and was promoted to President in 2003. During her tenure, Home Care Services was restructured, its service line expanded, and the entity recorded sustained record levels of growth and profitability.

She earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology and master’s of business administration from Pennsylvania State University.

“I am honored to accept the position as President of UH Ahuja Medical Center,” said Juris. “The new medical center is a unique facility because of its evidence-based healing environment. I look forward to working with its first-rate and dedicated team of physicians, nurses, and staff members to serve the needs of our patients and to provide the surrounding communities with the high-quality, technologically advanced health care they deserve.”

UH Ahuja Medical Center is located in the Chagrin Highlands in Beachwood, Ohio.  It is a technologically-advanced, eco-friendly, state-of-the-art hospital on a 53-acre health care campus.

The hospital features all private rooms, a comprehensive imaging center (including MRI, CT, nuclear medicine, diagnostic radiology, ultrasound, and mammography), advanced inpatient and outpatient surgical facilities offering minimally invasive and interventional procedures as well as other therapies to shorten hospital stay and accelerate recovery time.  It also features an Emergency Department for pediatric and adult patients, advanced wireless technology for enhanced communication with staff, patients, and visitors. 

There are bright, airy spaces, healthy food choices, healing gardens, and community wellness and health education spaces.  The medical center has been designed with input from physicians, nurses, patients, employees and community leaders to ensure a patient, family, and staff-friendly healing environment for the delivery of personalized, efficient patient services.
