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 is redefining health care by going beyond medical treatment to improve the foundations of community health and well-being: affordable housing, a cleaner environment, economic opportunity and access to fresh food, convenient transportation, legal help and other services. The system strives to become as good at preventing disease as it is at treating it.

The system’s more than 600 doctors, 1,700 nurses and 7,800 employees go to work each day with a mission of service, to their patients and to the community. As Cuyahoga County’s safety-net health system, MetroHealth plays an essential role in the region, caring for anyone and everyone, regardless of an ability to pay.

Founded in 1837, MetroHealth operates four hospitals, four emergency departments and more than 20 health centers and 40 additional sites throughout Cuyahoga County. The system serves more than 300,000 patients, two-thirds of whom are uninsured or covered by Medicare or Medicaid.

MetroHealth is home to Cuyahoga County’s most experienced Level I Adult Trauma Center, verified since 1992, and Ohio’s only adult and pediatric trauma and burn center.

As an academic medical center, MetroHealth is committed to research and to teaching and training tomorrow’s caregivers. Each active staff physician holds a faculty appointment at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. Its main campus hospital houses the Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s Lincoln-West School of Science & Health, the only high school in America located inside a hospital.

Knowing that good health is about much more than good medical care, MetroHealth has launched the Institute for H.O.P.E.™ (Health, Opportunity, Partnership, Empowerment), which uses a coordinated, collaborative and strategic approach to help patients with non-medical needs such as healthy food, stable housing and job training.

The MetroHealth Glick Center, a new 11-floor hospital, is under construction on the system’s main campus in Cleveland and is scheduled to welcome its first patients in October 2022. The billion-dollar project is the cornerstone of a wider neighborhood revitalization effort led by the system and its partners in the community.
