Our volunteers welcome and escort guests to their destination.
Architect Frank Gehry created a light-filled welcome that symbolizes the optimism we hold out for the diseases treated at Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.
Furnishings throughout our building are designed, selected or approved by our architect, Frank Gehry.
Volunteers escort patients and families to the tranquility room where there is plenty of information about brain health to peruse before or after an appointment.
Patient Service Representatives welcome patients and families.
Many of our rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows — a rarity in medical settings.
Brain diseases affect not just the patient but the entire family who rise to the occasion as unpaid caregivers, accompanying the patient on the medical journey.
Cleveland Clinic has used electronic medical records since 2003, making the record available 24/7 via the internet to the physician, patient and any designees, including family members or other care partners.
Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health has MRI and PET imaging available to support thorough examinations by physicians.
Did you know? Our imaging is not just for brains. We can scan virtually any part of the body.
Our dynamic balance system guides patients to better balance and postural control, skills which reduce fall risk and enhance quality of life.
Our physical therapists "play" with patients, using virtual gaming for balance and coordination training.
Using a recumbent bicycle, patients use interactive gaming technology to exercise mind and body together. Now that’s efficient!
The treadmill increases motor learning by displaying an on-screen visual map of the path the patient has covered, allowing patients to effectively change their movements during practice based on real-time feedback.
Resistance equipment, including weights and resistance bands, challenge and stimulate motor control of the patient’s neuromuscular system.
We conduct clinical trials to advance new treatments and diagnostic approaches for patients with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia.
All drugs have to be tested in clinical trials to show they are safe and effective before they can be approved by the FDA to treat patients.
We offer trials involving pills, injection, infusion, exercise, magnetic stimulation, brain imaging and biomarkers, such as blood.
We have over 1,500 volumes in our collection. , Information is available in both English and Spanish and can be accessed 24/7 via the internet.
Community groups gather over formal or informal meetings in our library space.
Weekly Lunch & Learns take place in our library, convening like-minded patients and family members to learn about improving quality of life while living with a brain disorder.
Eat well and do good. Wise food selections may help maintain brain health, and a portion of the proceeds from the café support Keep Memory Alive’s work.
A relaxing urban escape for an impromptu picnic lunch or for a scheduled special event, we invite you to have a seat and spend time in our garden.
Honor a loved one by naming a paver in our garden.
Noted sculptor Peter Alexander produced Sugar, a glass pyramid that graced Frank Gehry’s California studio until the architect gave it to Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health where you may now enjoy it in our garden.
No matter how high the mercury rises, our aptly named Breezeway is the coolest spot on campus. It’s a great venue for cocktails or food stations at your special event, or a red carpet greeting as your guests arrive at our valet drop-off.
There are 199 windows, none of which is alike in shape or plane on which it is placed. Each of the windows within the stainless steel canopy structure is equipped with a custom-fit computerized shade. A light-sensor calculates the heat load on the glass, and opens and closes the shades throughout the day as needed to conserve on heat/air conditioning. And of course, the room can be darkened for a slide presentation.
Wisdom Trees refer to the four vertical structures that conduct heat, air conditioning, water and electricity to the higher elevations in the Event Center. They also recognize and honor our donors.
Strategically placed on the branches are the Wisdom Trees are lights that create an up-lighting effect. If your daughter’s favorite color is pink, we’ll wash the walls in pink lighting to mark her special day.
The canopy refers to the stainless steel wall/roof and 199 windows and the corresponding all-white interior surface that covers the Keep Memory Alive Event Center
Due to the uniqueness and complexity of the canopy, acoustics could not be modeled in a test environment. Rather, final testing was conducted onsite while a live band played as directed. Why not host your event in yet another masterpiece of Acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota? The legend who created the acoustic environment for Los Angeles’ Disney Concert Hall also created a sound environment for our Keep Memory Alive Event Center, and for your event.
The “curtain wall” or north-facing glass and aluminum entrance to the Event Center is 63 feet tall at its highest point. Due to the temperature extremes in Las Vegas, spacers have been installed in the aluminum support system to allow for its expansion of 2 ¼ inches over the 60 vertical feet
