St. John Medical Center
St. John Medical Center is a 204-bed, full-service, nonprofit, acute care Catholic hospital providing comprehensive health care to residents of western Cuyahoga and eastern Lorain counties. It offers a full range of both inpatient and outpatient services, and serves as a teaching hospital for the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine. The hospital opened its doors in 1981 as the result of a merger of two long-standing health care institutions: St. John Hospital and Bay View Osteopathic General Hospital.
In November 2015, University Hospitals (UH) and the Sisters of Charity Health System (SCHS) satisfied all requirements from the state government regulators to complete the process of full integration of St. John Medical Center into the UH health system. SCHS and UH signed an agreement in August 2015 to transfer sole ownership of St. John Medical Center to UH. The announcement followed a five-year agreement under which UH was the managing member of their co-ownership of the hospital.
The medical center, which was co-owned by UH and SCHS from 1999 to 2015, is a leading provider of Catholic health care. Throughout its history, St. John Medical Center has remained committed to its faith-based mission and provision of excellence in patient care.
The medical center is recognized for outstanding centers of excellence that include emergency services, orthopedics, pain management, women services and cardiovascular services, as well as unique services such as its Kidney Stone Center, Holistic Birthing Center and Balance Center. Recognized by several national organizations as one of the country's best community hospitals, the medical center continues to expand its role as a leading provider of health care in Northeast Ohio.
