Brentwood Health Care (BHCC) is a 99-bed skilled nursing facility that specializes in short and long term rehabilitation. BHCC is a medicare and medicaid certified facility that also participates in many private insurances as well as being an approved residents rights advocate by the state of Ohio. Brentwood is operated and maintained by a dedicated group of in-house staff, never relying on outside employment agencies.
Our objective is to heal patients back to a safe, independent community environment. Physical healing begins with personalized therapy. Our free range of rehabilitative services include physical, occupational, speech, stroke, recreational, wound and IV-therapies. Our gentle approach achieves the same results as intensive rehabilitation programs that push for maximum results in a minimum amount of time.
Brentwood opened its doors March 23rd, 1989 in Sagamore Hills, Ohio. The Center was initially built by and affiliated with Brentwood Hospital in Warrensville Heights, Ohio. Its current owner and administrator, Brent Classen, managed the design, construction, and start-up of Brentwood. Since the 1930’s, the Classen family has had an active, vital and successful role in the development and history of health care in the Cleveland area.
Mr. Classens’ father Theodore F. Classen D.O. was the founder of Brentwood Hospital where he had a successful General Surgery Practice for 52 years. Mr Classens’ siblings are also physicians, Roger Classen D.O. General Surgery, Greg Classen D.O. Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, and Gary Classen D.O. Radiologist. A third generation of Classens continue to pursue careers in medicine and have practiced or have been affiliated with Brentwood Hospital (now Cleveland Clinic South Pointe Hospital)

In 1994 Brentwood Hospital became South Pointe Hospital after a merger with Meridia Health Systems. In 1998 Meridia Health Systems merged with The Cleveland Clinic Foundation. As an affiliate of Brentwood Hospital, Brentwood followed along. In 2002 Brent Classen purchased Brentwood from The Cleveland Clinic establishing a family owned and operated center providing skilled nursing care and rehabilitation.
