CLEVELAND – Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald today congratulated Dr. Larry L. Macon on his appointment to the MetroHealth Board of Trustees.

“Dr. Macon will bring to the MetroHealth Board a wealth of experience and firsthand knowledge of the challenges facing middle class families that will help ensure the MetroHealth system continues to serve all Cuyahoga County residents with quality, affordable health care services,” said FitzGerald. “Given his strong record of service to our community, I am confident that Dr. Macon will be a valued member of the MetroHealth Board.”

“It is an honor to be a part of the renewal of our region,” added Dr. Macon. “My family, my ministry, and my friends are all humbled by this awesome responsibility.”


Macon is the Senior Pastor of Mt. Zion Church in Oakwood Village, where he has served for nearly 35 years. Among his responsibilities, Macon serves as the spiritual leader for a 5,000-member congregation in Cuyahoga County that includes 25 ministries in operation. A graduate of Ashland Theological Seminary and Cleveland State University, Macon serves as the Chairman of the United Pastors in Mission and also previously served as Chairman of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC).

Macon’s nomination to replace Ronald Fountain on the MetroHealth Board of Trustees was supported by a wide range of civic and business leaders in the Northeast Ohio region, including Cleveland Cavaliers CEO Len Komoroski, Ohio State Senator Nina Turner, Probate Judge Anthony Russo, and Common Pleas Judge Richard McMonagle.

The 10-member MetroHealth Board of Trustees meets monthly to establish and maintain permanent facilities and services to provide Northeast Ohio residents with quality, effective health care services, including community health and prevention, ambulatory and emergency services, comprehensive primary care, acute care, rehabilitation services, and skilled nursing care. Members of the Board serve six-year terms following their appointment by the Cuyahoga County Executive with the concurrence of the senior judge in service from both Probate Court and Common Pleas Court.
