CLEVELAND -- In regard to Friday's editorial, "MetroHealth expansion outside Cuyahoga County should have involved public debate," MetroHealth is always eager to play a role in thoughtful and transparent conversation, especially when it involves the care of Ohio's most vulnerable residents. Passage of House Bill 111 allows MetroHealth to respond to the health care needs of surrounding communities and to provide crucial care for patients in eight additional Northeast Ohio counties. MetroHealth's mission compels us to provide care to those in need, whenever we can, wherever they are. And we've lived by that principle for the past 181 years, caring for those with cholera, tuberculosis, polio and HIV. It's why we volunteered to serve as the Ebola Center for the entire state of Ohio.

By ABBY GOODNOUGHAPRIL 29, 2018 OAK RIDGE, Tenn. — Jerika Whitefield’s memories of the infection that almost killed her are muddled, except for a few.
