The MetroHealth System is redefining health care by going beyond medical treatment to improve the foundations of community health and well-being: affordable housing, a cleaner environment, economic opportunity and access to fresh food, convenient transportation, legal help and other services. The system strives to become as good at preventing disease as it is at treating it. Founded in 1837, Cuyahoga County's safety-net health system operates four hospitals, four emergency departments and more than 20 health centers.


The Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) is integral to the nursing leadership team. The Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) is a licensed registered nurse that has graduate preparation (master's or doctorate) in nursing a Clinical Nurse Specialist.

While the practice balance across the three spheres may vary by specialty, the focus is the improvement of clinical and system outcomes. The CNS upholds the mission, vision, values, and customer service standards of The MetroHealth System.
