Cleveland bets Vornado can revamp city as health hub
Cleveland, which has poured almost $1 billion into such projects as three sports stadiums and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, is on the verge of spending $465 million in an effort to remake itself as the epicenter for the sale of medical equipment and supplies.
The city's planned Medical Mart & Convention Center, scheduled to start construction next month, would transcend earlier renewal efforts and attract the kind of high-tech jobs the area needs, said Tim Hagan, a Cuyahoga County commissioner who has championed the project.
