History

University Hospitals St. John Medical Center is a 204-bed, full-service, nonprofit, acute care hospital providing comprehensive health care to residents of western Cuyahoga and eastern Lorain counties. The medical center, which had been co-owned by University Hospitals and the Sisters of Charity Health System since 1999, is a provider of Catholic health care. As such, it follows the ethical and religious directives for Catholic Health Care Services. Opening its doors in 1981, the medical center was the result of a merger between two longstanding health care institutions: St. John Hospital in Cleveland and Bay View Osteopathic General Hospital in Bay Village. Sole ownership of UH St. John Medical Center officially transferred to the UH health system in November 2015.

Today, UH St. John Medical Center is the largest employer in the City of Westlake with more than 1,200 employees. More than 500 serve on its medical staff, and more than 300 volunteers provide the organization with their time and talents. UH St. John Medical Center is a teaching hospital and maintains an affiliation with the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine. Also, the medical center is affiliated with Westshore Primary Care, Inc., a consortium of more than 50 physicians who range in specialties from family practice to obstetrics.

Throughout its history, UH St. John Medical Center has remained committed to its faith-based mission and provision of excellence in patient care.
