Our Integrated Healthcare Delivery System
Cleveland Clinic is one of the leading providers of specialised medical care in the world, focused on providing clinical excellence and superior patient outcomes. It is an integrated healthcare delivery system with hospitals, clinics and wellness centres in the U.S. (Ohio, Florida and Nevada), Canada (Toronto) and the U.A.E. (Abu Dhabi).
We support the diverse needs of patients, medical professionals and healthcare organisations around the world. Our Global Solutions centres, as well as our international network of in-country offices and representatives, ensure we can assist patients and medical professionals with customised healthcare solutions. We attract the top physicians in their respective fields and support everything we do with research, medical education, technology and leadership at all levels.
All the locations in which we operate are linked by advanced health information technology and evidence-based protocols. We share the same mission, vision and values too. In the U.S., Cleveland Clinic main campus consists of 50 buildings on 166 acres in the centre of Cleveland, Ohio. We also own and run 10 full-service regional hospitals and 18 family health centres across Northeast Ohio.
As part of our international business strategy, we have acquired a building located at 33 Grosvenor Place in central London’s Belgravia. We are delighted to have been granted planning approval to convert the existing building into our first healthcare facility in London, expanding the international delivery of our specialised medical care. We will provide further updates on Cleveland Clinic London, as the construction process progresses.
Our Model of Healthcare
At Cleveland Clinic, we believe that transparency is an essential part of quality. That’s why we were the first major medical centre in the U.S. to publish annual outcomes and volume information for our medical specialities.
We are exploring how we can adapt our group practice model to the healthcare model in the U.K. Our goal is to collaborate with local physicians and healthcare organisations so that we can share technology, research, education and clinical best practices. We believe this will help to meet the growing demand for innovation in healthcare worldwide.
Commitment to Principles
As a global organisation, we are committed to the United Nations Global Compact. This is a policy initiative for businesses committed to aligning their operations and strategies with universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. With more than 9,000 corporate participants and other stakeholders from more than 160 countries, it is the world’s largest voluntary corporate citizenship initiative.
In 2008, Cleveland Clinic became the first healthcare provider in the U.S. – and the second in the world –to become a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact.
Our “Patients First” philosophy will be at the heart of Cleveland Clinic London. The goal of our Patient Experience team is to create an environment that delivers world-class clinical care. In addition, we value face-to-face interaction as an important healing factor.
Our best practices comprise tools, techniques and methods that are measurable, replicable and evidence-based, all designed to enhance our patients’ experience. We actively engage our caregivers to develop and implement best practices throughout the patient’s journey.

Our Medical and Surgical Services
Cleveland Clinic London hospital will provide comprehensive medical and surgical services, with a special focus on Heart & Vascular, Digestive Disease, Neurosciences, and Orthopaedics, as well as the following clinical areas:
- Acute admissions unit
- Ear, nose, and throat

Outpatient services will also be provided at additional sites across London. Our first medical outpatient building is expected to begin seeing patients in Autumn 2020 for outpatient appointments and diagnostics, and general practice appointments.
Independent Healthcare Providers Network
Cleveland Clinic London has joined other private healthcare providers across the UK in committing to implement a new medical governance framework. The Independent Health Provider Network’s (IHPN) Medical Practitioners Assurance Framework (MPAF) has been developed to improve consistency in medical governance across independent healthcare providers.
We believe this framework demonstrates the strong culture of learning and continuous improvement that can be found in the independent healthcare sector, and will give confidence to patients that independent providers are committed to delivering the safest possible care.
