MetroHealth Glick Center

Central to an extensive campus plan, the MetroHealth Glick Center marks a departure from the traditional, inward-facing hospital design, instead emphasizing its seamless integration into the surrounding neighborhood. Working directly with MetroHealth and architectural designers HGA, CPL’s Healthcare team championed the creation of this facility, employing Lean methodologies and data-driven design principles to realize its advanced healthcare capabilities.

Spanning 11 floors, the center has 316 private patient rooms equipped with modern amenities, including en suite bathrooms, visitor sleepers and digital whiteboards for real-time patient planning.

Drawing inspiration from the surroundings, the facility’s interior exudes inclusivity and wellness, characterized by vibrant colors, expansive layouts, abundant daylight, scenic views and local artwork.

Externally, the building reflects a dual concept, envisioning it as both a “hospital in a park” and a “hospital as a park.”

For instance, its white terracotta façade serves as a beacon of hope while subtly evoking the gentle waves of Lake Erie. As part of ongoing campus development, the hospital will be enveloped by 25 acres of lush, landscaped parks.

With its beautiful, evidence-based design and comprehensive healthcare services, the MetroHealth Glick Center not only extends hope and healing to the community but also sets a new benchmark for hospital facilities everywhere.
