Cleveland Clinic Opening New Heart Center

CLEVELAND (AP) - Opening day has arrived for the Cleveland Clinic's new $506 million heart center.

The facility officially known as the Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Pavilion features larger operating rooms built for new technologies that allow for less invasive surgery. The patient rooms are all private ones, with wide-screen televisions and pullout beds so a family member can stay with a loved one.

Officials say the heart center adds 100 beds and 1,000 jobs to the sprawling main campus of the clinic.

Though it opens Friday, the pavilion won't begin taking patients for a few more weeks.

Much of the money for the project came from the Miller family of suburban Solon (SOH'-luhn), founders of the Matrix line of hair care products.
