University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center

"As a vital element in Vision 2010: The UH Difference, the state of the art UH Ahuja Medical Center will reinforce UH's continuous effort in providing the highest quality, patient and family centered care.

The UH Ahuja Medical Center is named in honor of UH Board Chairman, Monte Ahuja, his wife Usha and their family who donated $30 million in support of the Vision 2010: The UH Difference strategic initiative.

In addition to offering advanced medical, surgical and emergency services, the development of the UH Ahuja Medical Center will also create jobs and attract additional medical and bio-technical industry to the area.

Situated on 53 acres in Beachwood, this eco-friendly facility will meet the current needs of Cleveland, its surrounding suburban areas and the greater community for generations to come.
