The city of Cleveland has filed an appeal in federal court that seeks to overturn a ruling that dismissed a lawsuit against the Cleveland Clinic over the closing of Huron Hospital in East Cleveland.

The  year-long saga began in October 2010 when the Clinic announced plans to close Huron’s Level II trauma services. Weeks later, the cities of Cleveland and East Cleveland filed for an injunction to halt the Clinic’s plans. The municipalities later withdrew the lawsuit to continue talks with the Clinic.

The appeal filed Thursday comes nearly one week after the Clinic, citing a decline in patient stays and the $22 million it lost operating Huron in 2010 as factors, shut down the hospital’s operations. On Monday, the Clinic opened the Stephanie Tubbs Jones Community Health Center, not far from the hospital, which will be torn down.
