The University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences and ProMedica are teaming up to create a world-class academic medical center and enhance the training and education of the next generation of medicine.

Spanning 50 years and encompassing a financial investment of more than $2.5 billion, the Affiliation will build a legacy model of health care that will benefit residents of our region for generations to come by:

  • Creating a premier academic medical center for patients, faculty, students, residents and fellows at ProMedica Toledo and Toledo Children’s Hospitals
  • Recruiting nationally prominent faculty and researchers to the Toledo and surrounding communities
  • Attracting top students in the health sciences
  • Generating new jobs and economic development opportunities in the health science and medical industries.

ProMedica and The University of Toledo are committed to ensuring that the Toledo region has a vital and sustainable academic medical center for generations to come. The goal is to transform northwest Ohio into a hub of medical education, innovation and research — a true destination for patients, providers and entrepreneurs.

Already, the Academic Affiliation has attracted new specialists in internal medicine, urology and anesthesiology and critical care medicine to Toledo. These physicians made the decision to relocate to our region due to expanding opportunities to pursue research and provide clinical leadership in a growing academic medical center. The lasting impact will be a strong pipeline of medical talent to care for future generations of our community.

This unique academic medical partnership will bring new opportunities for patients to benefit from specialty care and advanced technology through enhanced access to clinical trials and research.

Establishing a dynamic, robust academic medical center helps the entire community by driving economic revitalization and business development. This will be powerful for Toledo and surrounding communities.
