Health Care with 
Catholic Community Connection 

Catholic Community Connection serves as a resource to all people within the Diocese of Cleveland. One way in which we serve the community is by providing information about Catholic health care providers in the area.

In 2007, Caritas Connection and Catholic Community Care merged to form Catholic Community Connection, which now consists of 19 of the major Catholic health care, senior living, social services, and higher education ministries in the greater Cleveland area.

It’s through collaboration with our health care partners that we seek to ensure coordination and access to health care services (and social services) for all the people of God in our midst. Our health care partners offer treatment and care options that align with the Catholic teachings and your family’s values.

Options in seeking health care

While not everyone considers the religious affiliation of the hospitals or health care facilities that treat them, there are a broad range of things to think about when weighing your options:

Services offered—Do they meet your medical needs while aligning with your core values?

Location—Is the facility convenient to you and your loved ones?

Reputation—Are they known for providing quality care and staying true to their mission?

Cost—Does your health insurance provider cover services at this particular facility?

Commitment to the community—Do they care for everybody regardless of their ability to pay?

Religious accommodations—Is there an on-site chapel and/or access to clergy for spiritual, religious, and emotional support?
