In The Region:

Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland is well on its way to funding a new medical school building to turn out more doctors in a modern setting. The Cleveland Foundation and the Mount Sinai Health Care Foundation have both awarded the school $10 million, the largest single grants in both organizations’ histories.

Case Western Reserve University’s medical school is one of the most highly rated in the country. But the school’s building is outdated and not suited for the hands-on training today’s medical students need. Case President Barbara Snyder says the need for a better facility became apparent after the school’s last accreditation when it received high marks for the curriculum, but the facility raised questions. She hopes to break ground for the new 5 story building in 2016, the year of the next accreditation review.

“Because the expectation is that a medical school in the top 25 should have facilities that are in that same ballpark, and we’re not there yet. Our medical students and outstanding staff deserve that.”

Besides the $20 million it’s received, Case still needs to raise another $ 30 million for the project. The new facility will be built nearby on the site of the former Mt. Sinai Hospital. Part of the project is to graduate more general practitioners to work in urban and rural communities.
