Connecting with our community

To make sure our neighbors have a say in the more than $60 million investment we’re about to make in our Clark-Fulton neighborhood, MetroHealth hosted community meetings in July and scheduled more for August.

The meetings give residents in our communities a chance to hear first-hand about the more than 250 apartments and the restaurants, shops and other plans we have for West 25 Street. They can also get answers to their questions and provide input.

Nearly 200 people attended the July meetings, held in the Broadway, Clark-Fulton and Tremont neighborhoods.

Residents were most interested in learning about the affordable apartments planned for West 25 Street. Other areas of interest? Our plans to provide low-cost internet access, create more green space on our main campus and draw new the business to the area.

“Attendees were engaged and excited to be a part of an ongoing conversation,” said Rita Andolsen, MetroHealth’s director of transformation communications and community engagement.

Open Houses are planned for August 6, 8 and 15 in MetroHealth’s Center for Transformation, where guests can learn more about the transformation and our plans to revitalize the neighborhood. While there, they can also take a virtual tour of our new hospital, now under construction and slated for completion in 2022.

The Open Houses are being held in partnership with Ward 14 Councilwoman Jasmin Santana.
