Welcome to Southwest General Health Center
More Than a Hospital. We Are a Community.
One thing everyone wants for themselves and their loved ones is a long,
healthy life. Southwest General Health Center is an award-winning hospital
in Middleburg Heights, Ohio serving the Greater Cleveland area. We take
great pride in serving the people of our community and strive to provide
each and every patient with exceptional health care. In addition to our
patients’ physical needs, we provide them with resources for mental,
emotional and spiritual support for an optimal healing experience.
Providing Patients With the Services They Need
Southwest General was founded in response to a devastating, post-World
War I flu epidemic, during which many area residents died while being
transported to the nearest Cleveland hospital. Concerned with the need
for a local hospital, members of the community rallied together and raised
$100,000 to create a new medical facility that could provide the sick
with the care and attention they needed. We commemorate the impressive
work of our founders by continuously expanding and improving our services
to better meet the medical needs of our community.
In the beginning, Southwest General was a 32-bed hospital in Berea. Today,
we have 350-beds and provide routine and emergency medical services to
the people of southwestern Cuyahoga, northern Medina and eastern Lorain counties.
Compassionate Medical Care
We take our responsibility as a health care provider very seriously. Caring
for patients goes beyond prescribing medication and bandaging wounds—
it is our job to listen to people and work with them to provide compassionate
care that addresses all of their needs. Whatever situation brings you
and your family to our doors, you can trust that our team will be ready
to help you with exceptional care and attention.
