Lakewood Community Will Hash Out Wellness Campus Thoughts at Public Meeting Tonight

Posted By on Wed, Jan 28, 2015 at 9:49 AM

Tonight, Lakewood residents (and others, likely enough) will meet at the Beck Center at 7 p.m. to discuss the recent news that Lakewood Hospital will transition into new life as a "wellness campus," per Cleveland Clinic parlance. The city, which owns the property and reaps lease benefits, has signed on to a letter of intent with the Clinic, which will change the landscape of health care in Lakewood (again, Clinic verbiage there).

Questions will be accepted at some point during the meeting, which will give residents a chance to air their thoughts on this major shift. Following the tone of certain, more controversial City Council meetings, the conversation could likely become very interesting — if not outright heated.

Tonight's event will be the first of two such meetings.
