Cleveland Clinic Euclid Hospital Cares for the Community

Cleveland Clinic Euclid Hospital has been part of the Euclid and Collinwood communities since 1952 when it moved from Glenville to its current location.  The hospital has a strong history of caring for the community, which is a tradition that continues today. Nationally renowned specialties include sub-acute (skilled nursing) care, neuro-rehabilitation, emergency medicine, senior behavioral health, geriatric assessment, orthopaedics and outpatient rehabilitation.  The hospital continues to invest in improving the services offered for patients.  In fall of 2019, Euclid Hospital opened a new Senior Behavioral Medicine Unit.  The $3.1 million investment created increased living space for Euclid Hospital behavioral medicine patients with rooms, dining and common areas.  Currently, a $1 million inpatient pharmacy upgrade is underway, to be completed in April, and a $600,000 renovation to the aquatic therapy pool is scheduled to begin this spring. 

Euclid Hospital is committed to providing quality healthcare to the community.  The hospital was awarded an A in the Fall 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade.  The total hip and knee program received the Anthem Blue Distinction Center designation for excellence in hip and knee replacement, and the Sub-acute Care Center, or skilled nursing unit, recently earned U.S. News & World Report’s 2019-2020 Best Nursing Homes designation, with an overall rating of 5 out of 5.  Euclid Hospital has also been designated by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's (ANCC) as a health facility on the Journey to Magnet Excellence® designation. This designation recognizes a health care organization’s commitment to creating and sustaining a culture of excellence in nursing.

Euclid Hospital’s commitment extends into the community as well.  For six years, the hospital has received the Practice Green Health Emerald Award, recognizing health care facilities for their commitment to environmental stewardship.  The hospital also recently launched a free eight-week health challenge for the Euclid/Collinwood communities, part of the Healthy Communities Initiative, a collaborative effort between Cleveland Clinic and community partners to promote optimal health and wellness.
