Breaking Ground

The new clinical buildings are about to take a symbolic yet significant step forward with groundbreaking, scheduled for June 5 from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Houck Lobby and Phipps Courtyard. Speakers will address the lasting importance of Johns Hopkins in the community. A group of VIPs, staff and “extended family,” including patients and children, will toss ribbons into the construction site as a massive rendering of the new buildings falls into place.
