Medical discoveries continue to enhance the state of health care, and give new hope to patients who previously would have had none. From the very beginning, research has been integral to our operations. In 1895, we forged a partnership with what is now Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. Today, these two entities form the UH Clinical Research Center – the largest biomedical research center in the state of Ohio, and one of top 15 in the country.
