In The Region:

University Hospitals has announced it’s building a $28 million outpatient health center and emergency room near the interstate that cuts north along Broadview Heights. That will give the area three such facilities within a half mile of each other. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more on the continuing competition of health care in Northeast Ohio.

The UH facility will be right across I-77 from the one Metrohealth Medical Center is building. And both will be within about a half mile of a similar facility the Cleveland Clinic has been operating for the last 25 years.  

Alwyn Cassil (Castle) had studied the Cleveland market for the Center for Studying Health System Change. And she says the move into the suburbs is part of a long-standing pattern, especially for University Hospitals and the Cleveland Clinic.

“And I think this move into outpatient services and facilities, particularly the free-standing emergency departments is very much a competitive strategy to keep those admissions and referrals coming to the flagship hospitals in center city Cleveland. 

Cassil says the risk with healthcare is that competition will become duplication and if anybody misjudges the market, everyone pays. 

The UH facility is expected to open in 2016.
