MetroHealth Medical Center is located 10 minutes from the heart of downtown Cleveland. Home to more than two million people, and more than 60 distinct ethnic groups, Cleveland is enjoying one of the greatest renaissances in the history of American cities. While Cleveland is nationally known as a center for medical education and health care, new residents can expect to find almost everything they seek in culture, entertainment, sports and living amenities. In addition to downtown’s Tower City Center and Galleria shopping centers, Cleveland proudly showcases the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the Great Lakes Science Center and the Gateway Sports Complex, which includes Jacobs Field and Gund Arena. Cleveland nightlife centers around "the Flats," a unique reclaimed industrial area along the Cuyahoga River, with numerous restaurants, nightclubs and shops on the waterfront.
Cleveland is a cultural center known throughout the world as the home of the Cleveland Orchestra, Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland Ballet, Playhouse Square and the Cleveland Play House. Cleveland’s professional sport teams includes the Cleveland Indians, the Cleveland Browns, the Cleveland Rockers (one of 12 WNBA teams), and the Cleveland Cavaliers. All the teams play in state-of-the-art arenas and stadiums. Cleveland also offers year-round outdoor and recreational opportunities through the unique Cleveland Metroparks System. Cleveland Metroparks consists of more than 21,000 acres of land in 16 reservations and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and Rainforest. Facilities include picnic areas and playfields, wildlife management areas and sanctuaries, hiking, bridle, all purpose and physical fitness trails, golf courses, swimming, boating, fishing, tobogganing, sledding, ice skating and cross-country skiing. There is an abundance of fine, reasonably priced homes and apartments in residential communities, offering excellent public and private schools, within a short distance of MetroHealth.
