LAKEWOOD, OH (WOIO) –
The Lakewood City Council has voted unanimously to approve a new deal with the Cleveland Clinic to close Lakewood Hospital.
The plan approved Monday night involves a multi-million dollar investment that transitions the facility from a “sick care hospital inpatient model to an innovative, contemporary and sustainable outpatient health and wellness approach. Along with a 24/7/365 emergency department, the health care needs of the Lakewood community will be met.”
The Cleveland Clinic will build a $34 million Wellness Center and 24 hour emergency room. The Clinic will also give $7 million to the city to redevelop or tear down the current hospital that will be vacated.
