On January 14, the Cleveland Medical Mart and Convention Center held a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate an important step toward becoming the first comprehensive marketplace to combine permanent showrooms, a Class-A exhibition hall and state-of-the-art conference facilities tailored to the needs of the medical marketplace. When the facility opens in 2013, the Sisters of Charity Health System plans to be an important part of this showcase of our region’s bright future in health care innovation, education and commerce.
As announced at the groundbreaking, the Sisters of Charity Health System has signed a letter of intent to be a showroom tenant in the Medical Mart. There, we plan to showcase clinical services offered by our highly skilled and dedicated physicians and caregivers from St. Vincent Charity Medical Center to build upon our legacy of providing care in the heart of Cleveland.
Much work needs to take place before this is realized, but ultimately, this project has the potential to be a wonderful opportunity to show how innovation extends our healing ministry of Jesus to all of God’s people.
