More Than Meeting Space at the Global Center for Health Innovation

There are many reasons to host a meeting at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland, but one major draw is the Global Center for Health Innovation. Included in the 390,000 square feet of meeting space the convention center offers is the connecting state-of-the-art healthcare facility, providing 20,000 square feet of unique conference accommodations.

Located in the heart of downtown Cleveland, the Global Center for Health Innovation includes multiple breakout rooms and access to world-class healthcare-related industry resources. This one-of-a-kind facility sits among some of the industry’s finest institutions and was built specifically to host and educate the medical community. The center partners with 45 of the world’s leading healthcare, health IT, and medical innovation brands, including GE Healthcare, Cisco, MetroHealth, SmartShape, and the Cleveland Clinic.

The Global Center for Health Innovation’s Atrium is a unique pre-function event space located outside of the Global Center Ballroom.

From patient experience to cybersecurity to wellness, the Global Center provides unmatched access to Cleveland’s top healthcare experts and unique education opportunities. The center’s goal is to give the country’s healthcare industry a state-of-the-art venue in which to convene with top medical brands, while drawing from the resources of Cleveland’s rich healthcare landscape. It’s led with direction from the Cuyahoga County Convention Facilities Development Corporation board, public facility management expert SMG, and an executive advisory council formed by thought leaders throughout Cleveland.

“The Global Center for Health Innovation is the location where healthcare leaders coalesce to problem solve,” Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish said. “We play host to the top industry players across the globe, to learn, innovate and develop solutions that improve healthcare.”

In a constantly changing, complex industry, the Global Center for Health Innovation is much more than just meeting space. It offers a space where healthcare professionals can work together to strategize and solve problems, like the future of patient access, how payment models are impacting care delivery, and why operational innovation is so important for the healthcare industry.

From subject-matter experts speaking on the latest trends, to hands-on training and continual medical education opportunities, the Global Center gives meeting planners a competitive edge, with facilities that include:

  • A Business Showcase that provides entrepreneurs and startups with a space to showcase their healthcare products and services. It allows smaller brands to have a presence alongside well-established healthcare organizations.
  • HIMSS Innovation Center, within the Global Center, offers visitors the chance to learn about the future of healthcare through demonstrations and simulations of how health information can be shared electronically and securely. The space provides interactive patient-care scenarios that demonstrate the value of information technology in order to make care safer, better, and more cost-effective.
  • The DHG Healthcare Center for Industry Transformation (CIT). It serves as a hub for professionals to discover and implement creative solutions to address their most pressing problems. It’s also home for research and development efforts. The CIT develops specialty service offerings tailored to clients’ needs, like Blue Sky Visioning sessions, dedicated to helping organizations define a “Vision of Excellence,” and Innovation Acceleration Experience, meant to help companies develop a custom implementation plan for a specific challenge.

From subject-matter experts to hands-on training, the Global Center gives meeting planners a competitive edge.

All of this innovation is conveniently connected to the 225,000 square feet of exhibit space and 50,050 square feet of meeting space at the Huntington Convention Center. In addition, the convention center features a 32,000-square-foot ballroom, 30 breakout rooms, and is connected to 600 hotel rooms at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown.

From small executive meetings to large healthcare conferences, the Huntington Convention Center and Global Center for Health Innovation is the ideal home for your next medical meeting.
