n 1993, University Hospitals developed a new vision, a new strategy and a new model for healthcare delivery. This new vision called for University Hospitals to better meet the healthcare needs of a significant portion of northeast Ohio through geographic expansion and an increase in the types of services we offer. In the process University Hospitals was transformed from a traditional, single-site academic medical center into broad-based University Hospitals: To complement our nationally prominent services in tertiary medicine, we added prevention, primary care and early screening. To strengthen our clinical capabilities, we expanded our established areas of excellence and developed new areas at University Hospitals. To improve access, we forged new hospital partnerships, developed the region’s largest primary care physician network, and increased the number and size of cost-effective outpatient centers. To enhance care in the communities served by our new partners in University Hospitals, we opened satellites of some of our centers of excellence, initially for cancer care, cardiac care, pediatrics and women’s health. To make quality care affordable, we redesigned the way we deliver much of our care, reducing inefficiencies and redundancies. Today, University Hospitals is one of the nation’s leading health care systems, providing high-quality, patient-centered medical care at locations throughout Northeast Ohio. Committed to advanced care and advanced caring, University Hospitals offers the region’s largest network of primary care physicians, outpatient centers and hospitals. The System also includes a network of specialty care physicians, skilled nursing, elder health, rehabilitation and home care services, managed care and insurance programs, occupational health & wellness, and the most comprehensive behavioral health services in the region. The System’s 1032-bed, tertiary medical center, University Hospitals, is an affiliate of Case Western Reserve University. Included in UH are University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, among the nation’s best children’s hospitals; University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center, part of National Cancer Institute-designated Case Comprehensive Cancer Center at Case Western Reserve University (the nation's highest designation); and University Hospitals MacDonald Women’s Hospital, Ohio’s only hospital for women. More than 24,000 physicians and employees constitute University Hospitals and its partnership hospitals, ranking it Northeast Ohio’s second largest private sector employer. UH performs more than 4.5 million outpatient procedures and nearly 63,000 inpatient discharges annually. University Hospitals’ goal is to provide comprehensive primary and community-based care—the kind of healthcare people need most—as well as access to the highest quality specialty care when necessary.
