Hospitals Come Together to Fight Opioid Crisis in Cuyahoga County
Date:6/14/2017

On Friday, May 19, The Center for Health Affairs announced a partnership with Northeast Ohio hospital members Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, MetroHealth and St. Vincent’s Charity Medical Center to combat the opioid crisis in the region. Together, the group announced that the newly created Northeast Ohio Hospital Consortium on Opioid Addiction would be hiring an executive director to lead its efforts.

The Consortium, which will be housed at The Center’s downtown location, will coordinate hospital efforts around opioid addiction and treatment in the community. The executive director will be tasked with providing strategic leadership to the Consortium by working with the board of directors and the executive management team at The Center to establish long-range goals, strategies and policies to address the opioid crisis.

For more information about the position and our efforts to combat the opioid crisis, please visit our careers website or contact Tony Gutowski, director of government relations, by phone at 216.255.3610 or Pam Waite, director of healthcare workforce and NEONI operations, by phone at 216.255.3650.

With a rich history as the Northeast Ohio hospital association, dating back to 1916, The Center for Health Affairs serves as the collective voice of hospitals and the source for Northeast Ohio hospital and healthcare information. As the leading advocate for Northeast Ohio hospitals, The Center aims to enhance the effectiveness of the healthcare community and the health of the communities it serves by providing expertise, resources and solutions to address the challenges faced by the region’s healthcare providers. The Center’s efforts focus on areas that benefit member hospitals from a regional approach, including healthcare workforce; emergency preparedness; public policy and advocacy; finance and reimbursement; and community initiatives. And because of its business affiliation with CHAMPS Healthcare, The Center has the resources to provide a broad level of professional services to its members. The Center, located in downtown Cleveland, is proud to advocate on behalf of more than 35 acute-care hospitals located in six counties. For more, visit neohospitals.org. The Center for Health Affairs is honored to be named as one of The Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Top Workplaces in 2014 and 2015, as well as to ERC’s NorthCoast99 List in 2003, 2004, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
