Cleveland, OH – University Hospitals and Cleveland Browns All-Pro Defensive End Myles Garrett are excited to announce a new partnership that names Garrett as the Cleveland Browns Ambassador to UH. Since being drafted No. 1 overall by the Browns in the 2017 draft, Garrett has called Cleveland home and has been fully committed to uplifting and supporting the Northeast Ohio community. Together, Garrett and UH will collaborate on health care and wellness issues with a shared goal of helping Northeast Ohioans live their best lives.

“Since the moment I was drafted by the Browns, the Cleveland community embraced me and took me in as one of their own. This partnership allows me to help serve a community that has meant so much to me and I’m excited to work with University Hospitals in a meaningful way that leaves the Northeast Ohio community better for all,said Garrett.

As importantly, Garrett is also revered on and off the field as a compassionate teammate who leads by example. Garrett has been a defensive captain, and last season was named the Browns’ Walter Payton Man of the Year, which recognizes elite players for their excellence during games and in support of local and national community initiatives.

“Myles is the epitome of what it means to play with his heart on and off the field. Now in our eighth season as the Health Care Partner for the Cleveland Browns, University Hospitals is delighted to partner with Myles in a way that allows him the opportunity to influence athletes across the region,” said James Voos, MD, Chairman, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, and Head Team Physician for the Cleveland Browns. “Together we will work to empower Northeast Ohioans to maximize their potential with positive health choices.”

Through this partnership with UH, Garrett’s personal journeys will shed light on health issues affecting himself, his family and our community. His passion for children, as demonstrated through his many visits with UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s patients, will continue to be a focus. And his commitment to a healthy lifestyle will shed light on what it takes to reach peak performance.

“I am also looking forward to the ability to connect with Northeast Ohio in a different way. There is so much more to me than the incredible game of football and I look forward to sharing other aspects of who I am through this partnership,” Garrett said.
