Community Relations

Government and Community Relations’ (GCR) Let’s Move It initiative is GCR’s strategy for improving the overall well-being of the residents in the communities Cleveland Clinic serves by positively “moving the dial” on healthy lifestyles, education, economic vitality, legislation and policy. Community Relations consists of two teams:

  • Regional Community Relations: engages communities served by Cleveland Clinic's family health centers and regional hospitals.
  • Community Outreach: engages communities served by Cleveland Clinic main campus.

These two teams work with internal and external partners to provide health initiatives, education and resources to benefit all of Northeast Ohio. These include wellness programs, educational health talks and support groups, chronic disease management services, health assessments, clinical screenings, health coaching and community service opportunities for Cleveland Clinic employees.

Government Relations

Government Relations consists of two functions: Government and Policy. These two teams work with law makers, government agencies, and advocacy organizations at the local, state, and federal levels to help shape policy as it is being created, to ensure laws and regulations implemented by policy makers can serve the best interest of Cleveland Clinic’s patients. We work to ensure that government supports the treatments and programs that make the most impact on the health of the patients and communities we serve.

The team also identifies potential medical research and funding opportunities that support health, wellness, and preventive care, which can lead to improved outcomes for all patients .
