Every winter since 2013, Davey works to meet and exceed the Cleveland Clinic’s zero tolerance policy by deploying a dedicated staff to remove snow and ice from the walkways and parking lots around the downtown Cleveland Clinic campus.
With a rigid zero-tolerance policy, the health care industry demands the most effective snow and ice removal program from their provider. Davey’s snow and ice management services have met and exceeded these expectations for the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, where our commercial grounds management team has been the snow and ice management provider since 2013.
Cleveland Clinic’s zero-tolerance policy requires the Davey crew to remove snow and ice from all walking, driving, and helipad surfaces. Zero tolerance for snow and ice management at the Cleveland Clinic includes:
Despite its proximity to the Snow Belt of Northeast Ohio, the Cleveland Clinic maintains its reputation as one of the top hospitals in the world by being committed to the accessibility of facilities for patients, workers, and visitors. “Due to our emphasis on patient and employee safety, we have very stringent and demanding requirements for snow removal,” writes Mario Cammarata, grounds administrator at the Cleveland Clinic. He continues, “I am very happy to say that Davey Tree performed exemplary service for years at all of the accounts they maintain for us.”
After a first year, one location contract, the Cleveland Clinic has brought on Davey to manage the snow and ice for 5 of their largest campuses, in part due to strong performance in back to back snowy winters of 2014 and 2015.
