Community Impact and Community Benefit Report
Cleveland Clinic is committed to promoting access to healthcare and building a healthy community. The health system has invested in initiatives designed to assist underserved patients, as well as the broader population.
Community benefit, which Cleveland Clinic reports annually to the IRS, is one measure of the health system’s impact on the community. In 2022, it contributed $1.42 billion in community benefit for its operations in Ohio, Florida and Nevada.
Every three years, Cleveland Clinic performs a health needs assessment for the neighborhoods surrounding each of its 23 hospitals to identify their specific health-related needs. These reports provide valuable feedback on how the health system can holistically improve the overall health of its neighbors.
Through this work, key areas of need have been prioritized and resources have been committed to them. Cleveland Clinic also has teamed up with community leaders and organizations to expand this impact. The result is investment that goes beyond the federal community benefit reporting requirements.
“Cleveland Clinic is part of the social fabric of the communities we call home,” said Tom Mihaljevic, M.D., CEO and President of Cleveland Clinic, and holder of the Martin L. Mandel CEO Chair. “We recognize our patients and neighbors may have unmet needs. As a nonprofit, we are here to serve our global communities, and this commitment extends beyond the care we deliver within our walls.”
