Cleveland: Cleveland Clinic Developments (University Circle)

Recommended Posts

The Cleveland Clinic has some strangely planned construction ambitions. The M building is the current Cleveland Clinic Pediatric inpatient hospital. That building contains most of the pediatric OR's and ICU's, so demolishing it before a suitable replacement is built would be out of the question. The 8th floor of the M building has been under construction for over a year, being remodeled into a new epilepsy unit. The ribbon cutting to officially open M80 will be Monday. The R building next door now contains the outpatient pediatric departments that moved out of the T and S buildings middle floors, still vacant since the fall of 2018 when the newly remodeled R building opened. The TT building is old and largely office space, along with the S and P buildings, so they could vacate the P, S, and TT and RR buildings fairly easily. The U building is also underutilized and takes up nearly an entire city block with the Cleveland Clinic Police Station. The Cleveland Clinic also purchased the The Cleveland Playhouse complex which is heavily damaged due to decades of poor maintenance and neglect (trust me). None of my contacts within the Cleveland Clinic maintenance departments have heard any plans for the next construction project, nor the next demolition project. Most of the Cleveland clinic is talking about the new Mentor Hospital that is supposed to break ground by the end of the year,  the closing of the TRW campus in Beachwood, the construction of Cleveland Clinic London, expansion of Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, and integrating of the recently acquired Akron General hospitals, Union HospitalMartin Health System and Indian River Medical.

In the coming months, look for movement on several Cleveland Clinic-related projects. There is already some visible movement starting on one of them -- the Brooks BioRepository proposed to be built at 10300 Cedar Avenue. The site is at the northwest corner of Cedar and East 105th Street.

 

Although context clues help me know what a 'biorepository' is, I still looked it up. Interesting.

 

"A biorepository is a biological materials repository that collects, processes, stores, and distributes biospecimens to support future scientific investigation Biorepositories can contain or manage specimens from animals, including humans, and many other living organisms."

It's too bad about the Playhouse.  I thought that when Explorys moved in there, the building itself might experience a little rekindling.  I'm in there pretty regularly and it just gets used for training pretty much now - no effort is being put into the building, so I don't think they have a long term plan or use for it.  Only one bathroom is being kept in usable condition.

I personally only cringe when I drive past the new Dentistry building...thoughts??

 

Is CWRU-Clinic Health Education Campus just another big shiny box at a sprawling medical center? - Steven Litt

Today 5:00 AM

 

Designed by Lord Norman Foster of England, one of the world’s most famous contemporary architects, the building seems ideal for high-tech learning that emphasizes collaboration among future doctors, nurses, physician assistants and dentists.

 

But is it one big, shiny box too many at the Clinic?

 

The four-story, 477,000-square-foot Sheila and Eric Samson Pavilion is a joint project by the Clinic and CWRU located on jointly owned land at East 93rd Street between Chester and Euclid avenues. It co-houses CWRU’s School of Medicine, School of Dental Medicine, and Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, which are moving over from the CWRU main campus, and the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine, another CWRU program.

 

Despite its dual parentage, the perception will be that the Samson Pavilion – for all its fine qualities – is adding to the chilly gigantism that pervades the Clinic’s 165-acre campus, which can make patients and families feel like tiny cogs in a vast machine.
