The vision of Cleveland Clinic: Striving to be the world's leader in patient experience, clinical outcomes, research and education.

The doctors who founded Cleveland Clinic, drawing from military medicine, believed in diverse specialists working and thinking as a unit. This kind of cooperation, efficiency and shared vision has fostered excellence in patient care, research and education. These principles endure today at Cleveland Clinic, a nonprofit group practice.
