Cleveland Clinic is a hospital in Minecraft with facilities located throughout many areas of the Minecreaft Worlds. The Hospital runs the same way as one would in real life - helping players heal and to cure the zombie infected villagers/animals so they can continue their Minecraft journey. The first Cleveland Clinic to appear in Minecraft was originally built in Minecraft Pocket Edition, and then was later fully developed in Java Edition. Inside the hospital, players can find lots of food, helpful potions, armor, as well as protection from zombies.

The Egil and Pauline Braathen Neurology Institute and Cancer Center at Cleveland Clinic Minecraft is a 156,000 square foot outpatient clinic building with several key clinical areas including a neurological clinic and procedural suite, a rehabilitation gym, a multidisciplinary infusion suite, a cancer clinic, and a radiation oncology suite with two linear accelerators and the capacity for a third. The facility also includes a number of support areas, too—a laboratory, pharmacy, food service area, boutique, resource center, and a space for art therapy. The NICI's administrative office and a conference center with a telepresence room are also housed in the building. Sitework included the temporary removal of a parking lot to make way for an additional building, and expanding staff and patient parking.
The design of the facade references the architectural vernacular of southern Florida. Its horizontal fins modulate solar gain while still allowing for excellent views to the outdoors. Inside the main entry area, visitors encounter a gracious, two-story space. The floor plan was designed to be flexible with modular exam room units, while the corridors provide views to the outside and bring natural light to the interior. The center's calm, respite-focused environments are tailored to patient needs and contribute towards the experience of an airy and comfortable facility.
