The Cleveland Clinic announced plans Monday to close Huron Hospital on the city’s east side.
The news comes after an evaluation of the hospital by a committee of the hospital’s board of directors and hospital leadership, according to a release from the Clinic.
The hospital will close in 90 days, but the facility will continue providing outpatient care until the new Huron Community Health Center is completed Oct. 3. Huron Hospital has about 850 employees, and they will all be offered job opportunities at another location within the Clinic health system, according to the release.
“This is a difficult day for Cleveland Clinic, but we are firmly committed to caring for this community and supporting our employees affected by this decision,” Clinic President Delos M. Cosgrove said in a release.
