Johns Hopkins Hospital Seeks New President

Share the News


After nearly two decades at the helm of Baltimore’s largest medical center, Johns Hopkins Hospital’s Ronald R. Peterson has announced that he is stepping down.

Peterson isn’t exactly retiring to go live on a beach somewhere far, far away; he’ll still keep his two other Hopkins affiliated jobs, as president of the Johns Hopkins Health System and executive vice president of Johns Hopkins Medicine. What, exactly, does a hospital president do all day? Lots and lots of meetings, apparently.

The university hopes to have a new president in place by July 1. And despite all appearances to the contrary, it is not a requirement that your name be Ronald in order to serve as a president of a major Hopkins-affiliated institution.
