With refreshing frankness, he told this community what it needed to hear: “It’s time to stop applauding medical care that’s administered after the fact — no matter how good it is — and start providing health care before people get sick…” “It’s time to focus on promoting health rather than fighting illness,” Dr. Boutros told the City Club of Cleveland crowd on June 7, 2019, as hundreds of others listened on the radio and watched online. It was that speech that cemented Dr. Boutros as more than a compassionate hospital executive fighting for social justice and health care for everyone. It laid out a bold new vision of what a health care system ought to be.

    12 2 0 1 9 A N N UA L R E P O RT That new vision? Here’s the Institute for HOPE… Addressing social determinants of health Greater Cleveland has some of the best health care institutions in the world and some of the worst health outcomes across its population. Two Greater Cleveland neighborhoods, just two miles apart, have a 23-year difference in life expectancy among residents. How does that happen? While quality medical care is essential, it’s not enough. Where you live, what’s going on around you, your socioeconomic status, your education level, your habits — affect your health 2½ to 4 times more than medical care. These “social determinants of health” include access to: SAFE, STABLE HEALTHY RELIABLE HOUSING NUTRITIOUS FOOD TRANSPORTATION EDUCATION AND JOB TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES Improving the health of the community is the core of MetroHealth’s mission. Part of that means continuing to deliver excellent medical care across the continuum of care — primary care, specialty medical and surgical care, hospital care and, when needed, life-saving interventions. It also means expanding the reach of care, so we can identify and help eliminate potential barriers to health and well-being. We are addressing the root causes of health disparities in our region. These factors disproportionately affect the most vulnerable members of our community.


  • Page 13

    13 We have a personal and collective responsibility to address disparities and improve health outcomes for all of us. Greater Cleveland’s overall health — our quality of life, culture, economy, our future — depends on the health of our residents. That’s why in 2019 we started The MetroHealth Institute for H.O.P.E.™, which aims to: • Improve the health of communities by leading efforts to address social and economic influences; • Identify and promote opportunities for change in practice, learning and policy; • Convene and leverage partnerships to impact individuals, neighborhoods and communities; Susan M. Fuehrer • Co-create a self-sustaining community where everyone is empowered to live their As President of MetroHealth’s Institute for healthiest life. H.O.P.E.TM (Health, Opportunity, Partnership, Empowerment), Susan M. Fuehrer leads a coordinated effort to address the social and environmental factors beyond medical care that drive 80% of health outcomes. Prior, Fuehrer spent more than three decades with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, including more than a decade as CEO of the VA Northeast Ohio Healthcare System — one of the department’s largest health systems. In 2019, the President of the United States awarded Fuehrer the Presidential Rank Award, the highest honor that can be given to a federal civil service executive.

She didn’t see it or feel it. But the thump she took to the chest was so strong it knocked the life right back into her. That thump came from Kathleen Rizer, RN, a cardiac nurse for 40 years. Donna and Kathleen agree the stars were aligned the day Donna collapsed at her desk outside Kathleen’s office. “I cover many sites and departments,” says Kathleen. “I just happened to be here that day.” Kathleen was meeting with Nurse Managers Kumarie Singh and Kumarie Singh, Donna Lanier, Kathleen Rizer Laurel Stevens, and both assisted in Donna’s care.

    17 New Hospital, Health of the Community Intertwined Fifteen months after the groundbreaking of MetroHealth’s new hospital, construction workers laid the final beam atop the steel frame of the centerpiece of a $946 million transformation of the W. 25th Street campus. The beam bore the signatures of laborers building the hospital and represents their hopes, dreams and the promise of a brighter future. Dozens of those laborers came from Cleveland’s Hispanic community, and thanks to the Latino Construction Program, they are earning good wages, getting health care coverage and gaining the opportunities that come with a career as a union construction worker.
