Johns Hopkins Medicine International Leadership Team
Rebecca Altman, RN, M.B.A.
Rebecca Altman comes to us having recently completed an administrative residency at Johns Hopkins Home Care Group (JHHCG) where her primary responsibility was researching and processing the application to the State of Maryland for private duty licensing. She helped to position JHHCG to enter the private duty business and was an active participant in the Readmission Initiative for the Johns Hopkins Health System, as well as having helped JHHCG and JHI develop a process flow for international patients.
Prior to joining the Hopkins family, she worked for the Financial Institution Regulatory Agency (FINRA) in Washington DC as a management analyst for the Office of the CEO, Mary L. Schapiro (subsequently appointed by President Obama to chair the Securities and Exchange Commission). Her duties at FINRA included operational, financial, and budgetary analysis, and consulting for international markets. She founded and chaired the FINRA Women’s Networking Group and started an informal mentoring program that crossed all levels of the organization.
Altman began her career as a registered nurse in the Intensive Care Unit at Lancaster General Hospital in Pennsylvania, where she managed care for pre- and post-operative open heart patients, gained open heart credentialing, and coordinated healthcare teams. She also participated in the Patient Care Committee, which piloted new products, assessed and evaluated the cost and efficacy of those products, and made recommendations regarding their use. Subsequently, she worked as a nursing supervisor at Lancaster General Hospital Women’s and Babies Hospital, where she managed more than 70 FTE staff, assisted with grant opportunities for lower income women, and held fund raisers for women’s health issues.
Altman has a BA in Business Administration from Franklin & Marshall College and an MBA from The George Washington School of Business, George Washington University.
