Choosing a Logo

Cleveland Clinic Logo

Cleveland Clinic’s logo consists of a symbol and a name. But it’s more than that. It’s our identity – a statement of who and what we are. And that’s a valuable asset.

That’s why it’s so important to respect and protect Cleveland Clinic’s logo by using it correctly. These guidelines will explain how.

 

What our logo communicates:

Through its design, Cleveland Clinic’s logo conveys reflects our heritage as a medical pioneer and our current position as a premier healthcare institution.

The Symbol

The four cornerstones in our symbol:

  • Represent the four facets of our mission: patient care (clinical and hospital), education and research
  • Honor our four founders
  • Symbolize our fundamental values: quality, innovation, teamwork and service

The center of the symbol represents our unified focus on putting “Patients First.”

The Colors

The colors of Cleveland Clinic’s symbol are inspired by our heritage. Green is the color of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation logo and is traditionally associated with medical science. Blue is the color of the Cleveland Clinic health system logo and suggests limitless possibility.

The Font

Cleveland Clinic’s name is set in a clean, modern, unembellished font. It makes an immediate impact.

Uses

Use Cleveland Clinic’s logo on any Cleveland Clinic materials.

Cleveland Clinic Children’s Logo

Cleveland Clinic Children’s is a sub-brand of Cleveland Clinic. Its logo shares Cleveland Clinic’s logo colors, font and Cleveland Clinic name. But, because Cleveland Clinic Children’s serves a distinct patient population, its logo uses a distinct symbol with a child’s handprint.
