CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) – The fight to save the trauma center at Cleveland Clinic’s Huron Hospital is continuing.

Earlier this week the Cleveland Clinic announced plans to close the trauma center at Huron Hospital and take cases to Hillcrest Hospital in Mayfield Heights.

Complaints immediately began pouring in that the closing will make response times too long.

Mayor Jackson, Mayor Norton and Congresswoman Fudge met with hospital officials on Thursday to discuss the situation.

Following the meeting this statement was released:

Jackson and Mayor Gary Norton met with Dr. Delos “Toby” Cosgrove and other Cleveland Clinic officials at Cleveland City Hall to discuss the continuation of Level II Trauma Service at Huron Hospital.
