Cleveland Clinic is committed to helping our communities thrive. As a nonprofit multi-specialty academic medical center with a proud history of serving our neighborhoods, we continue to prioritize the health and well-being of our residents through a comprehensive set of benefits. Cleveland Clinic provides Community Benefit through clinical services, medical research and education.

Community Impact

Patient care comes first at Cleveland Clinic, but care doesn’t stop at our doors. Cleveland Clinic hospitals are active members of their communities. They offer outreach programs and special initiatives that complement our medical services and impact local residents’ lives.

Government & Community Relations

Our work centers around the Let’s Move It® initiative – our strategy for improving the overall well-being of the residents in the communities we serve by positively “moving the dial” in four areas:
