SAVING LIVES: FROM COVERED WAGONS TO LIFE FLIGHTS
Please join us for a continental breakfast and program featuring Dr. Richard Fratianne, Director Emeritus of the Comprehensive Burn Unit at MetroHealth Medical Center
Dr. Fratianne, founder of Metro's Burn Unit, Level 1 Trauma Center, the T.E.A.M. approach to healing, and the first director of Metro's Life Flight, will share poignant stories of Metro's rich past, present innovations, and future goals, weaving these tales with Cleveland's development as a major medical center.
Metro was established in 1837 when Cleveland City Council designated a neighborhood infirmary as City Hospital to meet the needs of the chronically ill, the aged, the mentally ill, and the poor. It exceeded their goals and has grown into one of the nation's largest public health institutes serving Clevelanders from its main campus and 17 community health centers from Strongsville to Pepper Pike.
Recipient of the 2009 Roslyn Z. Wolf award for their Community Advocacy Program and a partner in Digknitty, NCJW/Cleveland shares Metro's mission of "...a healthier you and a healthier community through service, teaching, discovery, and teamwork."
