About Johns Hopkins Medicine

“Much of what we take for granted in medicine today—from the rigorous training of physicians and nurses to the emphasis on research and the rapid application of that research to patient care—emerged from innovations made more than a century ago at a brand new medical center in Baltimore, Johns Hopkins. Indeed, today the very name Johns Hopkins means medicine to a majority of Americans, according to a recent Gallup poll.

Hopkins now uses one overarching name—Johns Hopkins Medicine—to identify its whole medical enterprise. This $4 billion virtual organization unites the physicians and scientists of The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine with the health professionals and facilities that make up the broad Johns Hopkins Health System.”
