The keys to a new vehicle from Bernie Moreno Companies’ North

Olmsted Campus have always unlocked style, class and unmatched customer service.

Now they unlock a new benefit.

Healthier kids.

Bernie Moreno Companies today unveiled “Keys for Kids,” a yearlong campaign to support children’s initiatives at Northeast Ohio’s three large hospital systems: Cleveland Clinic, The MetroHealth System and University Hospitals.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of every new and used vehicle purchased at Mercedes-Benz of North Olmsted, Porsche of North Olmsted and Cleveland Motorsports will be donated to the “Keys for Kids” program, the first of its kind in Northeast Ohio.

During the first round of the program – the months of June, July and August – donations will help fund MetroHealth’s School Health Program, which provides health care to students inside 13 Cleveland public schools.

Later in 2018 and into 2019, the second and third rounds of “Keys for Kids” will benefit Cleveland Clinic’s Children’s and University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children's.

“Whether it’s a second-grader getting an annual check-up during her school day because of Metro, a 5-year-old boy getting groundbreaking cancer care at the Clinic or a preemie thriving at Rainbow, our community’s children deserve the gift of the best health care possible,” says Bernie Moreno. “‘Keys for Kids’ is a way for us and our clients to help provide that gift.

“The clients of Bernie Moreno Companies love luxury, style and our award-winning customer service, but they also love helping our community. We are proud to give them the chance with “Keys for Kids,” Moreno says.

About the MetroHealth System

The MetroHealth System, Cuyahoga County’s public health system, is honoring its commitment to create a healthier community by building a new hospital on its main campus in Cleveland. The building, and the 25 acres of green space around it, are catalyzing the revitalization of MetroHealth’s West Side neighborhood.

MetroHealth will break ground on the new hospital in late 2018, using nearly $1 billion it borrowed on its own credit after dramatically improving its finances. In the past five years, MetroHealth’s operating revenue has increased by 44.5 percent and its number of employees by 21 percent. Today, its staff of 7,700 provides care at MetroHealth’s four hospitals, four emergency departments and more than 20 health centers and 40 additional sites throughout Cuyahoga County. In the past year, MetroHealth has served 300,000 patients at more than 1.4 million visits in its hospitals and health centers, 75 percent of whom are uninsured or covered by Medicare or Medicaid.

The health system is home to Cuyahoga County’s most experienced Level I Adult Trauma Center, verified since 1992, and the only adult and pediatric burn center in the state of Ohio.

As an academic medical center, MetroHealth is committed to teaching and research. Each active staff physician holds a faculty appointment at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and its main campus hospital houses a Cleveland Metropolitan School District high school of science and health.
