Health care,
not just sick care.

At Cleveland Clinic, it is our mission to help people live their healthiest lives. We strive to provide outstanding and compassionate care, every step along the way. It’s why we’re recognized as one of the nation’s top hospitals – ranked No. 1 in heart care by US News and World Report since 1994.

Historically, healthcare has not done a good job of promoting disease prevention. That’s why we established the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute in 2007 with the goal of focusing on “health care,” not just “sick care.” Smoking, poor diet, and lack of exercise are the leading factors that place patients under the scalpel. These surgeries could be avoided, or at least delayed, if people have the tools they need to make better choices.

The Wellness Institute has built a framework to guide patients to healthier lifestyle choices. Using evidence-based medicine and clinical protocols, our physicians develop Cleveland Clinic programs designed to change unhealthy behavior and encourage healthy choices. Outcomes are validated using standardized measures in clinical trials. Successful participants gain accountability for their health and leave the programs healthier and more engaged.
