Saint Luke's Hospital: The transformation of Saint Luke's Hospital, once one of Cleveland's leading hospitals, into Saint Luke's Points, combining affordable senior living, an early childhood learning center, a K through 8 public charter school, a Boys' and Girls' Club and offices for two leading non-profit organizations into a truly intergenerational experience.
Background: Saint Luke’s Hospital was founded in 1894 as Cleveland General Hospital on Woodland Avenue near what later became East 22nd Street. In 1906, Cleveland General was reorganized as Saint Luke's Hospital, and 2 years later moved to a new building at what is now 6601 Carnegie Avenue. The hospital moved again to a magnificent new building on Shaker Boulevard near East 116th Street. In addition to some of the finest health care in the city, Saint Luke's was highly regarded as both a teaching and research hospital. As consolidations changed the healthcare landscape, Saint Luke's merged with St. Vincent's Charity Hospital in 1997, but was closed in 1999.
Project Scope: Document the renovation, restoration and repurposing which began in 2011, through its completion in 2014, and the publication of The Ever-Whirling Winds of Change, telling the story of the hospital and its transformation.
