New Cleveland Clinic healthcare partnerships


As medical advisor to Air Canada, Cleveland Clinic will provide access to leading expertise including guidance on:

  • Infectious exposure and toxicology
  • Pandemic and infrastructure response planning and prevention
  • Medical contingency plans and process development
  • Crisis and organisational risk management

Air Canada will have access to the local expertise of Cleveland Clinic Canada, as well as clinical expertise from Cleveland Clinic’s worldwide enterprise system.

The clinic’s collaboration with Aetna includes the launch of a co-branded insurance plan, which could reduce health care costs for participating employers, an expanded relationship nationwide to provide members enrolled in Aetna commercial plans access to second opinions by Cleveland Clinic for certain conditions, and the deployment of Cleveland Clinic’s Cardiac Centre of Excellence (COE) programme to Aetna plan employers.

A nationwide part of the initiative will offer Aetna commercial plan customers access to virtual second opinion services from Cleveland Clinic providers. There is also a Cardiac COE programme for employer plans nationwide. Employers can control healthcare costs by incentivising employees to go to a particular high-quality facility.

The Cardiac COE programme offers Aetna employer plans across the USA cardiac care at Cleveland Clinic. The Cardiac COE programme is designed to offer patients improved clinical outcomes as well as faster return to work and other activities of their daily lives.

Cleveland Clinic has a main campus in Cleveland, 18 hospitals, 220 outpatient facilities, and locations in Florida, Las Vegas, Toronto, Abu Dhabi and London.
