Cleve­land Clinic gets a pop cul­ture in­fu­sion

Modern Healthcare - - OUTLIERS ASIDES & INSIDES -

Out­liers doesn’t usu­ally think of the Cleve­land Clinic as a pop cul­ture epi­cen­ter. But then it was re­vealed in June that the med­i­cal cen­ter was be­ing cred­ited with sav­ing the life of rock le­gend Lou Reed with a liver trans­plant in May. Now the clinic is ap­par­ently a movie set.

A source told a lo­cal Cleve­land news­pa­per and a comic-book trade pub­li­ca­tion that the renowned med­i­cal cen­ter is serv­ing as a set lo­ca­tion in the lat­est Cap­tain Amer­ica film.

The cast of “Cap­tain Amer­ica: The Win­ter Sol­dier” has been film­ing the new Mar­vel Stu­dios pro­duc­tion at var­i­ous sites through­out Cleve­land, in­clud­ing at a lo­cal art mu­seum, pri­vate homes and along the Cleve­land Me­mo­rial Shore­way.

The in­clu­sion of the clinic as a set lo­ca­tion has also spurred some old­fash­ioned spec­u­la­tion that one of the char­ac­ters may die. “Now that a hos­pi­tal lo­ca­tion has been re­vealed, does this mean some­one is re­ally dy­ing?” The Daily Su­per­Hero asked.

The Reed trans­plant even earned the clinic a glow­ing trib­ute from the pa­tient’s wife, per­for­mance artist Lau­rie An­der­son. “The Cleve­land Clinic is mas­sive. They have the best re­sults for heart, liver and kid­ney trans­plants. When­ever I get dis­cour­aged about how stupid tech­nol­ogy is and how greedy and stupid Amer­i­cans are, I go to the Cleve­land Clinic be­cause the peo­ple there are gen­uinely very kind and very smart,” An­der­son told the Times of Lon­don news­pa­per.

So what’s next, Cleve­land Clinic? Out­liers will be pe­rus­ing En­ter­tain­ment Weekly for the lat­est up­dates.


Cap­tain Amer­ica has been zoom­ing around Cleve­land lately, ap­par­ently in­clud­ing stops at the Cleve­land Clinic.
