Cleveland-area hospitals are partnering together to tackle the opioid epidemic through the Northeast Ohio Hospital Consortium on Opioid Addiction.

The consortium, which includes Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center and University Hospitals, was formed after hospital leaders agreed late last year to help fund a full-time position to lead the hospital-specific response to the crisis, according to a news release.
