Caring for life, researching for health and educating those who serve.


Our vision for Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital is to be the best place for care anywhere and the best place to work in healthcare.

Humble Beginnings


in 1932, Garnett Lunsford Radin, a 29-year-old registered nurse, purchased a hotel on Old Dixie Highway and opened Indian River Hospital. It had 21 beds and an artesian well water system, and one wood-burning stove provided the building’s only heat.

A growing facility


Since opening our doors 88 years ago, Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital has grown from a small community facility to a 332-bed, not-for-profit hospital. Our mission is to provide exceptional, patient-centered, evidence-based healthcare. We combine world-class clinical expertise with extraordinary technology and compassion.
