St Vincent Charity Medical Center

Against the backdrop of a soul-searing Civil War and a spirit saddened by the assassination of a President, new life was teeming on the streets, avenues, shores, railways and alleys of Cleveland. However, without a hospital the city could not serve the railroad and steamboat disaster victims and returning Civil War soldiers who were requiring immediate medical attention and nursing care.

To meet these needs, St. Vincent Charity Hospital, rose above almost insurmountable difficulties to come into existence.

Today, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center is Cleveland’s faith-based, high-quality health care provider. As a teaching hospital, it is home to the renowned Spine and Orthopedic Institute, the Center for Bariatric Surgery as well as complete services in cardiovascular, emergency medicine, primary care, behavioral health, occupational health and addiction medicine in a setting that is as caring and comfortable as home.

Everyone at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center is devoted to the mission to treat every patient with clinical excellence and compassionate care. Because we are all caregivers.

Along with all ministries of the Sisters of Charity Health System, we carry forward the mission of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine.
