Daniel Smith: Biographies
Mr. Daniel B. Smith
Daniel Smith is vice president of finance and chief financial officer for The Johns Hopkins Hospital and senior vice president of finance for the Johns Hopkins Health System.
His relationship with Johns Hopkins began in the 1980s as a health care consultant. Dan officially joined the Johns Hopkins staff in 1983, when he was tapped to participate on a management team that would successfully transition the troubled Baltimore City Hospitals into a profitable health care facility, which is now Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.
Recognized for insightful business acumen and fiscal expertise, Smith ultimately became senior director of finance at Johns Hopkins Bayview, and in 1995, he was named the health system’s senior director of finance for budget and financial analysis, overseeing the budget and business planning process. In addition to these duties, Smith was appointed the chief financial officer for Johns Hopkins Home Care Group in 2001. Three years later, he stepped in as the acting president. In 2005, he became president/CEO, and he maintained his role as chief financial officer until 2009.
Under Smith’s leadership, Johns Hopkins Home Care Group attained national HomeCare Elite status as an organization of two home health agencies for adult and pediatric patients; home infusion; home medical equipment companies, including a joint venture with Allegheny Health Network; and nine outpatient pharmacies throughout the health system. Additionally, he oversaw the development of a private-duty nursing and home support services agency, and the development and integration of numerous transitions programs throughout the Johns Hopkins Health System. As new programs were established and operations enhanced during Smith’s tenure, the number of employees serving customers and patients increased dramatically, from 250 to over 900.
Smith sits on the boards of several Johns Hopkins Medicine entities. He earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from Loyola University and his M.B.A. from Northeastern University.
