University Hospitals Urology Institute is expanding strategically, academically, clinically, and geographically. We opt for fresh thinking. Over the past few years, we’ve almost doubled our number of published studies. We’ve substantially grown the number of grants submitted and funded. We’ve doubled the number of new providers, evolved our divisions to include a global perspective, and built leading programs that reflect today’s needs.
Our roster of diverse providers is the next generation of urologic leaders — outstanding providers, surgeons, researchers, and advanced practice professionals. A cross-disciplinary team approach means tapping experts across the system and doing what it takes to remove silos, so patients and their families get the best care. This means working together and collaborating across disciplines to ensure every need is met. It requires delving to extraordinary depths to get to the roots of patients’ concerns. And it means keeping their health at the forefront while never losing sight of their humanity. Living an entrepreneurial spirit has pushed us to grow fast, and we can accommodate more needs and reach new and vulnerable populations.
