JOHN GRABOWSKI: A lot of things that happened during the Civil War, really the bases for UH being established as an entity.
PATRICIA DEPOMPEI: At that time there was a huge wave of Eastern European immigrants. Many of them came here with very little money, so poverty was rampant. Housing conditions were deplorable. Nutritional status wasn't optimal.
CHRISTOPHER J. DAWSON: The city's filling up, the social services were being strained to the very limit. The need to take care of them, the need to provide health services, the need to provide sanitary conditions for living, I mean, that just doesn't go away. There just was a strong belief that yes, you have to take care of those in need.
There's a need for something else in Cleveland, a hospital in Cleveland.
JOHN GRABOWSKI: It's not unusual that the routes for University Hospitals are in an old style Presbyterian church. I think you can legitimately say they are taking on a task because they want to make a change.
ANNE PINKERTON RANNEY: UH was, has been, and is there to serve the community. And I think that has been their focus.
Delivering health care is very complicated. It's a collaborative effort. It's the right care at the right time at the right place. The same quality of care no matter what or who one is.
DANIEL I. SIMON: University Hospitals Case Medical Center has been a leader in American medicine from the early 1900s. It is really breathtaking what's taken place here.
THOMAS F. ZENTY: So many hospitals were now needing to invest in new technologies, build new buildings because we were really seeing health care and medicine becoming a science as opposed to what had in the past been a craft or perhaps, by some measures, an art. You think about hospitals as the buildings in which they're located, you think about the high tech equipment, you think about the research that's performed there, you think about the discoveries that happen there, and you think about the miracles that occur there. But all those things happen as a result of the efforts of the people within it.
EDWARD M. BARKSDALE JR: We're not only tactically and professionally driven, but we're humanistically driven. And at our core, we are people taking care of people.
JACK HORWITZ: Your compassion and your care comes first. You have to be a whole person, you can't just be science and nothing else.
ANNE PINKERTON RANNEY: That caring and that culture of caring has not changed.
FRED C. ROTHSTEIN: It all comes from the legacy of philanthropy, and it started with the Founding Fathers for Northeast Ohio, for this community that we live in, and has continued, and people continue to give back.
THOMAS F. ZENTY: If we're going to be success for the next 150 years, we need to make sure that we're going to do what those who founded this organization did, and that is meet the needs of people who need that care today while looking what the future will look like tomorrow.
Diversity & Inclusion
At University Hospitals, we believe in the power and value of diversity. We recognize and celebrate the diverse cultures, beliefs and identities of both those we serve, and those with whom we work to achieve our mission.
Diversity throughout our system is essential in order to achieve our most critical goal: providing the highest quality of care for our patients. Our belief in diversity and inclusion can be traced back to WWI. In 1917, The Lakeside unit was deployed as the first American military unit on European soil during WWI. The unit, made up of Lakeside doctors and nurses, provided medical care to Allied soldiers in Europe until 1919. As the Lakeside Unit was committed to servicing Allied soldiers, University Hospitals remains committed to hiring our nation’s heroes.
Our efforts as an anchor institution include providing employment, opportunities for career advancement, and a commitment to hire local, live local, buy local and buy diverse. One example is our Step Up to UH program that recruits chronically underemployed or unemployed individuals from seven Greater University Circle neighborhoods for workforce-readiness coaching, job-specific training and, ultimately, jobs at UH. The Edgar B. Jackson Jr., MD, Endowed Chair for Clinical Excellence and Diversity, Henry L. Meyer III KeyBank Faculty Fellows Program, Gender and Sexual Diversity Services and partnerships with organizations such as AARP are designed to support and enhance an already inclusive environment.
As Dr. King once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” At University Hospitals, that passion to “do for others” is exhibited every day by our employees who put our patients first. By being the difference, our employees illustrate our core values and continuously achieve our vision statement, Advancing the Science of Health and the Art of Compassion.
