The Cleveland Clinic is trying to help you get through this.
The Cleveland Clinic on Friday announced a $2.5 billion plan to help patients in the US and Canada with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
The hospital is expanding the network of doctors and specialists in order to get more patients in care.
“We are proud to offer the Cleveland Center, a full range of specialty care to patients across the country and Canada, with the support of the President’s Cancer Panel,” said Dr. Michael Fuchs, director of medical services and chief medical officer at the hospital.
“We’re also excited to have a dedicated team of physicians and other health care professionals in place to help coordinate our care for our patients.”
The Cleveland Center will have a full-time pediatric cancer physician and a nurse practitioner on the medical staff.
It will also have an office for emergency care, as well as a clinic for specialty services such as a liver transplant and chemotherapy for advanced cancer patients.
Cleveland Clinic is also adding a clinical director who will help coordinate care and provide a new team of nurses, pharmacy personnel, and physicians to help manage the hospital’s operations.
“These new positions are designed to better integrate and coordinate care to improve patient care and patient safety,” said Chief Medical Officer David J. Wertheimer in a statement.
“The Cleveland Cancer Center is expanding its medical services to include a broad range of care options that are not only better for patients, but also better for the health and safety of our community.”
The hospital will also expand its oncology and geriatric care, and offer additional services for families.
The health care overhaul passed in July would increase the federal government’s ability to pay for health care for people with pre-existing conditions, and provide financial relief to people with high-deductible plans, or those who cannot afford insurance.
The bill also includes the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or CHIP, which helps families afford child care and health insurance.
The new measures would also make it easier for people who are uninsured to enroll in Medicare and Medicaid.
