MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio: Cleveland Clinic Hillcrest Hospital hosted a ribbon cutting for the new Lozick Cancer Pavilion yesterday, marking the opening of a new 10,600-square-foot addition to the hospital’s existing cancer center. A significant donation from The Lozick Family Foundation funded the construction that incorporates a healing environment centered on the patient experience.

Patient and caregiver feedback was instrumental during the building’s design phase. The new innovative physical spaces are patient-friendly and tailored to the specific needs of cancer patients. Design features include abundant natural light, views of green space, natural design elements and specially selected artwork. To help improve access to the cancer center, the expansion includes a new covered entrance leading to a central patient check-in, as well as dedicated valet parking and convenient patient drop-off.

Donor support also provides patient navigators to help guide each patient throughout their cancer care journey. The second floor includes dedicated music and art therapy rooms for patients, along with other support services.

Along with the new construction, the existing space underwent interior renovations. A direct connection between the building’s lower-level radiation therapy services and the second-floor oncology spaces was also created.

“The Lozick Cancer Pavilion is transformative in many ways,” says Richard Parker, M.D., president of Hillcrest Hospital. “This expansion is solely focused on the patient, improving access and patient experience. Providing world-class care to our patients, and in turn our community, is a commitment we proudly make today and for the future.”

“Through the years, Cathey Lozick and the Lozick Family have supported many important projects across Cleveland Clinic, spanning heart disease, eye care, diabetes and stroke research here in Ohio and in Florida,” said Tom Mihaljevic, M.D., Cleveland Clinic CEO and President, and holder of the Morton L. Mandel CEO Chair. “The Lozick Cancer Pavilion is the latest shining example of their compassion, generosity and vision. Through compassionate care and pioneering research, our goal – always – is to help patients emerge healthier and stronger. And we could not succeed without the support of caring, generous donors.”
