About Us

Unite Ohio is a coordinated care network of health and social care providers. Partners in the network are connected through a shared technology platform, Unite Us, which enables them to send and receive electronic referrals, address people’s social needs, and improve health across communities. Unite Ohio is sponsored by MetroHealth.


“Unite Ohio will connect social services and the people in our community who need help – and enable us to measure if it is making a difference. This platform will empower all the community’s health and social service agencies to work together efficiently and transparently. We believe our partnership will make our community healthier.” – Akram Boutros, MD, FACHE, President and Chief Executive Officer of The MetroHealth System

“Improving the health of the community is the core of MetroHealth’s mission. Part of that means continuing to deliver excellent medical care. But we must also expand the reach of our care. We need to see the full picture of our patients and their lives, beyond our walls, so we can identify and help eliminate potential barriers to their health and wellbeing. We must find and fix the root causes of health disparities in our region. Unite Ohio will help MetroHealth and the Institute For H.O.P.E. to identify and address these health disparities.” – Susan Fuehrer, President, Institute for H.O.P.E.™

“Since our founding in 1837, The MetroHealth System has provided outstanding health care to the people of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County, with compassion, dignity and respect. While we are proud of our mission, we are also committed to pursuing partnerships and programs that address the social influencers that prevent many of our patients from achieving optimal health. Unite Ohio is a powerful, connected network that combines health care and social care to improve the health of our communities.” – Dr. James Misak, Medical Director, Institute for H.O.P.E.™
