Cleveland Clinic is a nonprofit, multispecialty academic medical center, that integrates clinical and hospital care with research and education. Cleveland Clinic was founded in 1921 by four renowned physicians with a vision of providing outstanding patient care based upon the principles of cooperation, compassion and innovation. The Cleveland Clinic is one of the largest and most respected hospitals in the country and is consistently ranked among the top hospitals in America by U. S. News & World Report. Founded in 1921, it is dedicated to providing quality specialized care and includes an outpatient clinic, a hospital with more than 1,300 staffed beds, an education institute and a research institute.
"Patients First" is the guiding principle of Cleveland Clinic. It declares the primacy of the patient care, comfort and communication in every activity we undertake. It affirms the importance of research and education for the improvement of patient care. "Patients First" also demands a relentless focus on measurable quality. By setting standards, collecting data and analyzing results, Cleveland Clinic puts patients first through improved outcomes and better service, providing a healthier future for all.
Known for its major medical breakthroughs, the Cleveland Clinic has large and busy research and education institutes, including the Lerner Research Institute, home to all laboratory-based translational and clinical biomedical research, the Education Institute, where one of the nation's largest physician-graduate training programs is located, and the College of Medicine, which with Case Western Reserve University, is dedicated to the teaching of physician-scientists.
