The GuideStar Detail web service was first released in 2008 and is designed as a followup to the GuideStar Basic web service, which is essentially a search service. Once a set of results is returned (see example: GuideStarBasic Web Service Results ), the Detail web service is called using the organization EIN to retrieve more detailed information about the subject.


For example, using the EIN of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, 34-0714585, the XML query for the Detail web service call would be:




The results of this call to the Detail web service will be:

Cleveland Clinic, located in Cleveland, Ohio, is a nonprofit, tax-exempt academic medical center that integrates clinical and hospital care with research and education. The Cleveland Clinic is the parent of the Cleveland Clinic health system.
The Cleveland Clinic was established in 1921 with the same mission that continues today: better care for the sick, investigation of their problems and further education of those who serve. The founders recognized that it is in the best interest of patients to pool the talents of medical specialists to develop, teach and apply the best medical techniques.
Cleveland Clinic's main campus is located near Cleveland's historic University Circle and includes a tertiary care hospital, a children's hospital, a medical school, a research institute, an outpatient clinic, 26 specialty institutes including facilities for heart care, digestive disease, cancer, and eye care, and supporting labs and facilities on a 162 acre campus. Cleveland Clinic also operates 16 family health centers throughout Northeast Ohio that are staffed with Cleveland Clinic primary care physicians, as well as many of its medical and surgical specialists.
Consistent with its tripartite mission, the Cleveland Clinic's primary program services are focused on patient care provided on a charitable basis, medical research, and education of both medical professionals and the community.
Patient Care: Cleveland Clinic is dedicated to the communities we serve. Each of our hospitals and family health centers strives to provide compassionate, high quality healthcare to all who need it, and support programs and initiatives that improve the health and well-being of our neighbors and our neighborhoods. Through our charity care efforts and as a leading Medicaid provider in the state of Ohio, we provide healthcare to those who otherwise could not afford it.

During 2010, Cleveland Clinic recorded 1,239 total staffed beds, 54,138 emergency room visits, 80,687 surgical cases, 53,410 admissions, and more than 3.8 million total clinic visits. It is the policy of Cleveland Clinic to treat all patients with compassion, dignity and respect, regardless of their ability to pay.
Cleveland Clinic's patient care services are provided via patient-oriented institutes, which are structured on the basis of organ system, disease system, and leadershiand are designed to enhance convenience for patients and the exchange of knowledge, research and educational collaboration for better patient outcomes. The 26 institutes are: Anesthesiology, Arts &amp; Medicine, Cleveland Clinic Lorain, Cole Eye, Dermatology &amp; Plastic Surgery, Digestive Disease, Education, Emergency Services, Endocrinology &amp; Metabolism, Genomic Medicine, Glickman Urological &amp; Kidney, Head &amp; Neck, Miller Family Heart &amp; Vascular, Imaging, Lerner Research, Medicine, Neurological, Zielony Nursing, Ob/Gyn &amp; Women's Health, Orthopaedic &amp; Rheumatology, Pathology &amp; Laboratory Medicine, Pediatric &amp; Children's Hospital, Quality &amp; Patient Safety, Respiratory, Taussig Cancer and Wellness.
Cleveland Clinic was again recognized for its quality of care in U.S. News &amp; World Report's prestigious annual "America's Best Hospitals" survey in 2010. Overall, Cleveland Clinic was ranked 4th among the nation's 4,861 hospitals. Cleveland Clinic was ranked America's number one center for cardiac care for the sixteenth year in a row, and its digestive disease, rheumatology and urology programs were ranked second in the nation. Other Cleveland Clinic specialties ranked among the top 10 in America were cancer, ear, nose and throat; endocrinology; geriatric care; gynecology; kidney disorders; neurology and neurosurgery; ophthalmology, orthopedics; pediatric neurology and neurosurgery; and respiratory disorders. Also named among the nation's best were Cleveland Clinic's services in psychiatry, and the following pediatric areas of heart and heart surgery, orthopedics, urology, kidney disorders, diabetes and endocrine disorders, and digestive disorders.
Cleveland Clinic is the first health system in Northeast Ohio accredited by The Joint Commission, the nation's largest accreditor of healthcare organizations. All of our hospitals, outpatient clinics and home healthcare programs are also accredited by The Joint Commission under its hospital accreditation program. (See Form 990, Schedule H, Part V for a listing of facilities.); Research: Cleveland Clinic's mission includes conducting research to advance biomedical science and ultimately improve patient care. Cleveland Clinic's Lerner Research Institute (LRI) is home to a complete spectrum of laboratory-, translational-, and clinical-based research.

LRI has more than 250 faculty-level scientists organized in the following departments: Biomedical Engineering, Cancer Biology, Cell Biology, Genomic Medicine, Immunology, Molecular Cardiology, Molecular Genetics, Neurosciences, Pathobiology, Quantitative Health Sciences, and Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, along with the clinical departments of Ophthalmic Research and Translational Hematology and Oncology Research.

LRI is one of the leading NIH-funded research institutes in the United States and has spearheaded numerous advances in the diagnosis and treatment of complex medical problems. Scientists and their teams are pursuing a wide range of biomedical questions at LRI, focusing on cardiovascular, cancer, neurologic, musculoskeletal, allergic and immunologic, eye, metabolic and infectious diseases. Altogether, nearly 2,000 scientists and support personnel work at LRI. This includes more than 270 postdoctoral fellows, nearly 180 graduate students and 169 undergraduate students.; Education: III. Education

Cleveland Clinic devotes substantial resources to education programs. In 2010, we provided a community benefit of $187.4 million through subsidy of medical education programs.
On its main campus, Cleveland Clinic operates a medical school and related research institute. The primary focus of Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University (the "Lerner College of Medicine") is the teaching and training of medical students who have a particular interest in research. Many Cleveland Clinic physicians serve as faculty for the Lerner College of Medicine, furthering the integration of clinical care with research and education.
In addition, Cleveland Clinic's Education Institute sponsors a wide range of high quality medical education experiences including accredited training programs for resident physicians, nurses and allied health professionals.
Education programs include, but are not limited to the following:
. Cleveland Clinic maintains one of the largest graduate medical education programs in the country. In 2010, 1,163 residents and fellows trained in 60 accredited residency training programs, approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), including 142 advanced fellows in 80 fellowship programs.
. Since its inception in May 2002, the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University has linked one of the nation's top hospitals with one of the nation's leading research universities. The College of Medicine has seen the number of applicants more than double over the past four years, with more than 1,512 applicants for 32 positions in 2010. The program's students have matched at some of the most prestigious hospitals throughout the United States and have contributed 55 scientific articles and 69 presentations to the world's store of scientific knowledge in 2010.
Visiting medical student education represents a major academic commitment by Cleveland Clinic. In 2010, 331 medical students from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine were among the 568 medical students rotating through Cleveland Clinic.
