University Hospitals (UH) and the Sisters of Charity Health System (SCHS) have satisfied all the requirements from the state government regulators to complete the process of full integration of St. John Medical Center into the UH health system.
The SCHS and UH signed an agreement in August to transfer sole ownership of St. John Medical Center in Westlake to UH. The announcement followed a five-year agreement under which UH was the managing member of their co-ownership of the hospital.
St. John Medical Center is a 204-bed, full-service, nonprofit, acute care hospital providing comprehensive health care to residents of western Cuyahoga and eastern Lorain counties. The medical center, which has been co-owned by UH and SCHS since 1999, is a leading provider of Catholic health care.
