CLEVELAND, OhioThe Eliza Bryant Village Board of Trustees has made the difficult decision to close its skilled nursing facility, effective Wed., June 8, according to a statement from trustees.


Formerly named the Cleveland Home For Aged Colored People, Eliza Bryant Village is located at 7201 Wade Park Avenue on the city's largely Black east side in the historic Hough neighborhood in Ward 7, which is now led by Councilwoman Stephanie Howse, a former state legislator whom voters elected in November. The center for the Black elderly in Cleveland was once located at 4807 Cedar Avenue, an historic building built in the early 1900s as a residential facility for older black people.


Eliza Bryant trustee members released the following statement as to the upcoming closure of its skilled nursing facility in Hough:


We will continue to operate our affordable senior housing, home care, senior outreach, adult day services, community transportation, caregiver support groups and Elder Justice Center. Our staff members will assist in relocating residents to area facilities that can capably and compassionately meet their needs.


Our current business model is just not financially sustainable due to skyrocketing operating costs, inadequate Medicaid reimbursement and the impact of the pandemic, among other issues.


We value each and every resident and are committed to helping them find the best quality care in the Cleveland-area to meet and exceed their needs. Also, we will work tirelessly to help our dedicated staff members secure employment at other facilities.


Thank you for the love and support you’ve shown throughout our 126 years of providing long-term care to African Americans in Greater Cleveland. We know our founder, Eliza Simmons Bryant, would like the organization she founded in 1896 to continue providing quality services to our constituency. How we serve may change, but our dedication to this community we love will continue to be expressed in new ways.
