In 1961, Richmond Heights experienced its first full year as a city. That same year, its 5,068 residents saw the opening of their very own community hospital. A tradition of medical excellence was born in Richmond Heights in 1961. Thirty-nine years later, that tradition was reborn as a vital component of University Hospitals. With this rebirth, UH Richmond Medical Center, a Campus of UH Regional Hospitals became a full-service, community-based, 125-bed acute care teaching hospital, offering residents of Lake and eastern Cuyahoga Counties more than 30 specialties from over 100 physicians and an unparalleled nursing staff. University Hospitals’ mission statement is To heal. To teach. To discover. In pursuit of that ideal, we have invested more than $30,000,000 in facility, program and human resource enhancements at your hospital in the last seven years - including an entirely new staff of medical professionals.

Today, UH Richmond Medical Center directly addresses the needs of your community. With immediate access to the Centers of Excellence at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, UH Richmond Medical Center is committed to providing the very best medical care to you and your family, close to where you live and easily accessible.
