Room Enough for the Sickest Children

The Blalock-Thomas Story

Re-Sharpen Your Pencils
The employee satisfaction survey is right around the corner. It's time again to make your mark.

While planners and architects are busy sketching out the physical characteristics of Hopkins' medical campuses of the future, others are attending to what human resources specialists call its "most valuable resource"-its employees.

In June 2001, leaders at every component of Johns Hopkins Medicine asked their staffs to weigh in on a host of common workplace concerns. The confidential, 120-question survey asked for opinions on pay and benefits, advancement opportunities, the qualifications of supervisors, and employees' views on parking and food services.


One of the employees' strongest complaints was the state of their physical plant.

When employees on the East Baltimore campus complained about limited mealtime choices, Hopkins opened two new eateries-Asian Café and Subway. Next up: a "wings-to-go" program and two-week hot food menu rotation in the main cafeteria.
