Hopkinomics
With the advent of an economic crisis, Dome has a candid conversation with Johns Hopkins Medicine’s chief financial officer.

Like millions of other Americans, we may be feeling miserable about our savings and retirement accounts, but we can take heart from working in an industry where job growth is predicted. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts that health care will generate 3 million new jobs during the next eight years, accounting for 20 percent of all jobs added to the economy over that period, more than any other industry.

Recently, Dome sat down with chief financial officer Rich Grossi to discuss how the economy is affecting Hopkins and its workforce.

Opportunity First

The U.S. Department of Labor has given its coveted “Opportunity Award” to the Johns Hopkins Health System in recognition of the equal opportunity employment efforts at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. It was the first time in the history of the award that a hospital received it. Some of the programs cited that prepare staff for advancement within the organization include the On Site RN to BSN Program, an internal recruitment campaign and formal diversity council, and the Hispanic Geriatric Nursing Assistant Program. “We are committed to equal opportunity and affirmative action to recruit and retain female and minority candidates, as well as veterans and people with disabilities,” says Gregory Schaffer, president of Johns Hopkins Bayview. Each year, only one federal contractor or nonprofit organization is recognized for establishing comprehensive workforce strategies that exemplify best corporate practices of nondiscrimination.
