Hillcrest/Euclid/Huron/South Pointe Hospital


In October of 1999 the Cleveland Clinic Health System retained Frank Zilm & Associates, Inc. to undertake master planning studies for three of the Systems hospitals - Hillcrest Hospital, Euclid Hospital and South Pointe.  A major challenge of this assignment was the desire to complete the studies for all three campuses in a two month time period.  Working with Orr Architectural Consulting, Inc. and The Austin Group, Inc. all three studies were completed on time, outlining major new directions for development at each campus.  Extensive use of the Space Planner Toolkit and graphic animation modeling assisted the planning team in the successful execution of this project.

Construction of a new surgery suite, intensive care and education center was completed in 2004 at South Pointe Hospital.  This project was the first phase of a comprehensive physical strategy for the regeneration of the campus, including the reorientation of the public entrance, internal upgrades to existing facilities and definition of future expansion of the campus.

Planning for Hillcrest Hospital includes a major new patient care tower, surgery and emergency service expansion and significant renovation to the existing facilities.  The proposed patient tower will include medical/surgical inpatient units opened in 2006, Women's care, Imaging, Dietary and other services.  Expansion to Oncology and Emergency services will also be accomplished as a separate project. 

Major expansion to the Hillcrest campus is currently under construction.
