MetroHealth Supports Local Economy by Creating Keep Calm, Carry Out Website

Cleveland – The MetroHealth System’s commitment to our community goes far beyond health care. As restaurants prepare to reopen, it’s clear many of our neighbors have been financially impacted by the pandemic.

That’s why MetroHealth created a hyper-local website with restaurant contact information sorted by neighborhood.

The new website www.keepcalm-carryout.com highlights local restaurants currently offering full and partial menus, making it easy for neighbors to support restaurants in their community. As restaurants reopen, they will be included on the website for community members to support.

We know COVID-19 has changed everyday life and MetroHealth hopes this website will be a useful resource for all of us to contribute to our local economy.

If you have suggestions to add to the list, please send them to Julie Nations at jnations@metrohealth.org.

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 broke ground on its new hospital in 2019. The project is being financed with nearly $1 billion the system borrowed on its own credit after dramatically improving its finances. In the past five years, MetroHealth’s operating revenue has increased by 40% and its number of employees by 21%. Today, its staff of 8,000 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% 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 Ohio’s only adult and pediatric trauma and burn center.

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. Its main campus hospital houses a Cleveland Metropolitan School District high school of science and health.
