Hospital Closures and the Effects on Healthcare
Sunday, January 29, 2023

Sadeer Al-Kindi, MD, Cardiologist, University Hospitals.
In the 1930s, banks began drawing red lines around
neighborhoods that were at higher risk for defaulting on mortgage and business loans. Recent studies by Dr. Sadeer Al-Kindi
and others at University Hospitals have shown long-term impacts on healthcare such as cardiovascular disease, strokes, and
cancer in these redlined areas. In the last 15 years, eight hospitals have closed in Cuyahoga County, several very recently.
Generally, these hospitals have been in economically disadvantaged areas with significant Black and Hispanic populations.
What is the expected long-term health impact of these hospital closures?
