CLEVELAND, Ohio — Workers are putting the finishing touches on the MetroHealth System Glick Center before it opens Saturday, Oct. 15. The 370-bed hospital will replace the old towers on the MetroHealth campus on W. 25th Street.

The hospital system will celebrate its new facility on Saturday, Oct. 8, with the MetroHealth Glick Center Community Day. The free public event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. features the Cleveland Metroparks Mobile Nature Center, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s mobile art studio, dance performances and more, all gathering on the Glick Center green space.

The design of the $759 million Glick Center, from the patient rooms to the artwork, is meant to promote healing and a sense of community, MetroHealth officials said during a media tour Thursday.

Digitally coded ID badges will only allow visitors to the floor where their loved one is hospitalized to protect patient privacy.

Patient rooms have ceiling-mounted elevators, sleeping areas for family members, and large flat screens that display the patient’s care plan for the day.

The pediatric ward features indoor and outdoor play areas and colorful jungle-themed murals by Cleveland artist Derek Brennan.

The mural is just one of many works of art specially commissioned for Glick and created by artists from Greater Cleveland and around the world.

“It’s all here to help patients heal,” said Dr. Jennifer Beilitt, MetroHealth’s chief medical officer. “It’s a healing place for families and patients.”
