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 buildings, and the 25 acres of green space around them, are catalyzing the revitalization of MetroHealth’s West Side neighborhood.
Under this new agreement, MetroHealth patients will be able to receive specialized care for behavioral health and addiction disorders from Recovery Resources professionals. Clients under the care of Recovery Resources will have access to MetroHealth services, linking them to additional primary care and preventive care options.
MetroHealth and Recovery Resources share similar missions serving Cuyahoga County’s most vulnerable residents. In 2017, MetroHealth created an Office of Opioid Safety, to address the growing opioid addiction problem. Recovery Resources has been serving clients with mental illness, alcohol and drug addictions since 1955.
