MetroHealth has big plans for the future.

CLEVELAND — Cleveland MetroHealth announced plans for its W. 25th Street campus at the hospital's annual stakeholders' meeting Friday.

The campus will add three new buildings with 250 apartments and community support programs. Among the plans are fresh food offerings, child care and job training services. 

Seventy-two one, two and three-bedroom apartments will be at the corner of W. 25th Street and Sackett Avenue, while the other two complexes with up to 190 one and two-bedroom apartments will be on W. 25th Street with access to the campus and its park.

The redevelopment plans are estimated at more than $60 million in hopes of generating economic growth in the area.

“We’re committed to assisting our patients, employees and community in developing the full potential of our neighborhood -- to helping it become a vibrant area that keeps our neighbors here and welcomes newcomers,” said MetroHealth President and CEO Dr. Akram Boutros. “It has been gratifying to see other Cleveland neighborhoods grow and become healthier. We believe it’s now Clark-Fulton’s turn.”
