About Inspira Health Group

Since our founding in 1995, Inspira Health Group has continued our long-standing reputation for excellence and integrity in delivering a better quality of life to all our residents. Our five community-based facilities serve Northeast Ohio and beyond under one network of care.

Locally owned and operated

Unlike an increasing number of senior care providers owned by private equity or other non-local entities, Inspira Health Group is locally owned and operated by members of the community, ensuring a deeper commitment to quality and community engagement. What’s more, our president and partners have worked “in the trenches” and use their familiarity to bring only the best experiences to each of our residents and their families.

Breaking the nursing home stereotypes

Inspira Health Group is at the forefront of senior care, using advanced medical technologies to implement the latest in world-class care. This type of quality care starts with our owners, including a former nurse who began his career at Inspira Health Group. And it’s why many of our own employees have entrusted us to care for their family members.

You’re part of the family at Inspira Health Group

Whether you’re a resident or an employee, everyone who comes through the doors at Inspira Health Group is part of our family. Our team of dedicated healthcare professionals is a close-knit community willing to step up and step in wherever needed. We look out for one another and strive to be our best to provide the best experience for our residents.
