Final beam placed atop MetroHealth’s new Cleveland hospital, as construction continues


CLEVELAND (WJW) — Monday, the final beam was placed on top of the steel skeleton of what will soon become MetroHealth Medical Center’s new hospital on Scranton Avenue.

MetroHealth President and CEO Dr. Akram Boutros spoke during the ceremony, which marked the start of construction of the building’s exterior.

Boutros said the $767 million construction project continues along on schedule, despite the coronavirus pandemic upending so many plans in 2020.

MetroHealth currently operates four hospitals in Cuyahoga County, as well as 20 health centers and 40 other sites.
