Redonda Miller

A top Johns Hopkins Hospital administrator is getting a promotion, and it will mark the first time a woman has held the top job in the renowned hospital’s 125-year history.

Redonda Miller is set to step into the president role on July 1. She succeeds Ronald Peterson, who announced he is stepping back earlier this year. Peterson, who will remain executive vice president of Johns Hopkins Medicine and president of the Johns Hopkins Health System, led a national search committee along with Johns Hopkins Medicine CEO Paul Rothman.

Miller started her career with Johns Hopkins as a medical student, later becoming a professor and earning her MBA from the university.

“Her deep understanding and appreciation of The Johns Hopkins Hospital’s culture and working knowledge of the Maryland financial rate-setting system make her extremely well-suited to lead at this time in our history,” Peterson wrote in a message distributed Thursday.
