For decades, Harold “Sam” Minoff and his late wife, Clare, along with their children – Amy and Michael Southard, Barry Minoff and Roy Minoff – were successful Cleveland business leaders, focused on compassionate leadership, product innovation and, above all, customer service.

Following the sale of Kichler Lighting last year, the Minoff family decided to give back to the community that helped build their company. Sam and his children made a transformational gift to UH to benefit outpatient care. In recognition of the family’s historic gift, which is the largest to a UH outpatient facility to date, the center has been renamed UH Minoff Health Center at Chagrin Highlands.

“We’ve lived in this community most of our lives,” said Sam. “Clare and I raised our family and built a business here. Now, we have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of other families like ours, who deserve access to the very best health care in Northeast Ohio.”

Located near the intersection of I-271 and Harvard Road, UH Minoff Health Center is the health system’s most prominent outpatient facility and, serving more than 100,000 patients annually, is also the busiest of UH’s 50 health centers.

UH Minoff Health Center houses a wide array of services, including primary care, radiology, women’s health, heart and cancer care, ENT, travel medicine and laboratory services. In addition, the urgent care center, complete with a UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s section, serves adults and children when quick diagnoses and treatments are needed.

“In the years since I met the Minoff family, I have been impressed by their deep commitment to helping people in our community,” said Daniel I. Simon, MD, President, UH Medical Centers. “Their meaningful gift will undoubtedly support UH’s vision of advancing the science of health and the art of compassion.”
