Sisters of Charity Health System and University Hospitals announce plans to transfer sole ownership of St. John Medical Center in Westlake to UH

The Sisters of Charity Health System (SCHS) and University Hospitals (UH) have signed an agreement to transfer sole ownership of St. John Medical Center in Westlake to UH. The announcement follows a five-year agreement under which UH was the managing member of their co-ownership of the hospital. The agreement is expected to be finalized within 60 days, subject to regulatory review. St. John Medical Center is a 204-bed, full-service, nonprofit, acute care hospital providing comprehensive health care to residents of western Cuyahoga and eastern Lorain counties. The medical center, which has been co-owned by UH and SCHS since 1999, is a leading provider of Catholic health care. The legacy of Catholic health care at St. John Medical Center will be continued through a commitment by UH to be accountable to the Bishop of the Diocese of Cleveland. UH leadership will work with the Bishop to create a mission and values committee to ensure that all of the vital components of the hospital’s Catholic identity continue. [More]
