The University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center got its start in 1925 when Walter C. Corey, MD, known as the country doctor, started serving Geauga County. In the 1950s, the Corey hospital closed and the Geauga Community Hospital opened with 56-beds. Throughout the next 40 years, the Geauga Community Hospital opened two new wings accommodating more than 100 patients and enhanced diagnostic, ancillary, and support services, as well as a critical care unit.
In 1995, Geauga Community Hospital joined the University Hospitals Health System. This new membership opened the doors to medical excellence in and around Geauga County with the additions of the area's first behavioral health unit, a $7.4 million outpatient surgery center, on-site MRI services, Center for Women's Health, a cardiac catheterization lab, and more. During this time, UH Geauga Medical Center earned a number of accolades such as selection as one of the Top 100 Hospitals by HCIA Inc. and William Mercer, Inc., and as one of the nation’s Top 100 Hospitals by the Solucient Institute.
