Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality

Created with a $10 million gift from C. Michael Armstrong, former chairman of the Johns Hopkins Medicine Board of Trustees, the institute also provides an infrastructure that, for the first time, oversees, coordinates and supports patient safety and quality efforts across Johns Hopkins' integrated health care system.
