Medina Hospital throws party to celebrate Clinic affiliation

Medina Hospital, 1000 E. Washington St., celebrated its affiliation with the Cleveland Clinic on Sunday afternoon with a carnival. Medina Hospital, formerly Medina General Hospital, became part of the Cleveland Clinic Health System Aug. 31. Robert Stall, president of the hospital, said the hospital has introduced a community advisory panel to give the community input on how the hospital is run. Other changes include a patient and family focus group so hospital staff “truly understands patient experience,” he said.
