Facts & Figures

Quick! Name all the components of Johns Hopkins Medicine. Having trouble? You’re not alone. This $2.7 billion enterprise is one complex organization; sorting it all out really is rocket science. Help, at last, is on the way in the form of a 38-page booklet called Facts & Figures, published annually and fresh off the press. We weeded out the essentials, acronyms and all:

Fact: Johns Hopkins Medicine unites the faculty physicians and scientists of the University’s School of Medicine (SOM) with the organizations, health professionals and facilities of the Johns Hopkins Health System (JHHS).

Fact: In addition to the SOM, some components of Johns Hopkins Medicine are:

• The Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH)
• Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center (JHBMC)
• Howard County General Hospital (HCGH)
• Johns Hopkins Health System Corporation (JHHSC)
• Johns Hopkins Community Physicians (JHCP)
• Johns Hopkins HealthCare (JHHC)
• Johns Hopkins Home Care Group (JHHCG)
• Johns Hopkins ventures

Fact: JHM’s components directly employ more than 24,500 individuals. If counted together, this would be more than any other private employer in Maryland.

Hoop Scoop

On March 26, the Department of Surgery and friends hit the hardwood at Villa Julie College to benefit the children of the Police Athletic League. Before a crowd of more than 400, the surgeons, organized by Charlie Yeo, took on the Harlem Ambassadors, a spinoff of the Harlem Globetrotters, in a game that was three parts b-ball to one part comic routine. “We lost, but we didn’t embarrass ourselves too much,” says co-captain Eddie Cornwell, who broke his pinky in the fray but claims it hasn’t affected his OR performance. “You learn to do it with four fingers. I broke the other one last year playing basketball. It’s an addiction—what can I tell you?”

On the Record

Since April 1, calls to the Hopkins Access Line (HAL), the 24/7 consultation and referral service that enables referring physicians to reach Hopkins doctors expeditiously, have been recorded in order to provide better documentation of conversations. Info: Janet Hicks, 410-614-2184.
