Cleveland Clinic

The mission of Cleveland Clinic is to provide better care of the sick, investigation into their problems, and further education of those who serve.

The vision of Cleveland Clinic: Striving to be the world's leader in patient experience, clinical outcomes, research and education.

When Cleveland Clinic welcomed its first patients on February 28, 1921, its mission was clearly in place: “Better care of the sick, investigation into their problems and further education of those who serve.”

The doctors who founded Cleveland Clinic, drawing from military medicine, believed in diverse specialists working and thinking as a unit. This kind of cooperation, efficiency and shared vision has fostered excellence in patient care, research and education. These principles endure today at Cleveland Clinic, a nonprofit group practice.
