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 352-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.
