Experience the University Hospitals difference at University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center

EMH Healthcare has served as the premier health care provider for Lorain County and western Cuyahoga County, Ohio for more than a century. To continue to provide our patients with high-quality care in a patient-focused and cost-efficient environment, we proudly joined University Hospitals effective January 1, 2014. UH is a nationally recognized health system employing more than 25,000 Ohio residents in 14 hospitals and 26 health centers throughout the region.

As part of the integration with UH, our main campus in Elyria is now known as University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center. Our highly regarded medical programs will benefit from the strong clinical research, leading-edge technology, and innovative practices and initiatives that the nationally recognized academic medical center, University Hospitals Case Medical Center, will bring to the Lorain County community. Commitments to establish programs at UH Elyria Medical Center from internationally acclaimed Centers of Excellence like University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital and University Hospitals Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute will significantly enhance the level of care we are able to provide to patients and their families.
