"It’s time for us — you, me, business, philanthropic, and civic leaders of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County — to come together and invest in fixing the health outcome crisis before us." – Dr. Akram Boutros

For decades, healthcare advancements have been largely focused on curing disease, medical therapy, and surgical innovation. These advances are only addressing 20 percent of the issues and as a result, life expectancy has dropped every year for the past three years.

What if these advancements and the deep expertise at the heart of our healthcare delivery systems are actually part of the problem? What if building an entire sector of our economy focused on illness is actually preventing us from keeping people healthy?

As the leader of one of the nation’s oldest public health care systems, Dr. Akram Boutros is responsible for the care of 300,000 patients across four hospitals and 20 health centers across the region. While transforming their main campus, MetroHealth is committed to transform its care delivery system, its community, its operations, and, in turn, the health outcomes of the community.

Join us to hear from Dr. Boutros about what healthcare is actually for and how we can better provide it.
