History of UH St. John Medical Center, a Catholic Hospital

Opening its doors in 1981, UH St. John Medical Center was the result of a merger between two long standing healthcare institutions: St. John Hospital in Cleveland and Bay View Osteopathic General Hospital in Bay Village. 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 healthcare, committed to furthering the healing mission of Jesus. Sole ownership of UH St. John Medical Center officially transferred to the UH health system in November 2015.

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