Community West Foundation Board of Directors Spotlight: Dr. Steven A. Lamb

Dr. Steven A. Lamb was the first physician to join the Board of Directors when Community West Foundation was still the Fairview Foundation. He currently serves on the Community Engagement Committee, but has previously participated on both the Finance and Grants Committees. “So many lives have been changed thanks to the Foundation’s focus, and to the partnerships with organizations that have the same view,” Dr. Lamb commented. “Community West, alone, and with these partnerships, has given significant grants that make a difference. It is fantastic to be associated with something like this.”

Dr. Lamb grew up in Paris, Illinois, a small farm town 3 hours south of Chicago. He majored in biology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and went on to receive his medical degree from the University of Illinois Medical School in Chicago. Dr. Lamb was accepted into the five-year urology program at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and was one of the team doctors for the Milwaukee Brewers during those years.

After his medical training, Dr. Lamb came to Cleveland to join a private urology group now called Urology Partners. He served as the group’s President for the last 15 years before retiring in December, 2019. Dr. Lamb was the Urology Division Chief at Fairview Hospital for many years and was honored twice with Ohio’s “Top Physician Award” from the Consumer Research Council of America. He also was the past Division Chief of Urology at Lakewood and St. John West Shore hospitals. In 2014 he was elected “The Physician of the Year” from the 1000 physicians at Fairview hospital.

He is a member of the prestigious Pasteur Society and was recently elected to the St. Luke’s Society at West Shore Hospital. Both the Pasteur Society and the St Luke’s Society are limited nominations by physicians and then voted on by sitting members of each organization to be elected. He remains on the Lutheran Hospital Board and has been on the Quality Alliance Board at Cleveland Clinic since 1997, and served on the Finance Committee for 15 years. He was also previously a member of the board of the Kidney Foundation.

Dr. Lamb and his wife of 43 years, Beth, live in Bay Village. They have two adult sons, Brian and Patrick, and a granddaughter named, Kayleigh. Dr. Lamb is a sports fan, especially of Cleveland teams, and enjoys traveling, as well as spending time with family and friends.
