Johns Hopkins Medicine CEO Recognized as One of the Top Leaders of Hospital and Health Systems
Becker’s Hospital Review magazine has selected Edward D. Miller, M.D., dean of the medical faculty and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine, as one of 65 prominent Physician Leaders of Hospitals and Health Systems in America. The award is based on the physician leaders’ “arrays of experience in medicine and management” along with their strong clinical and financial backgrounds.
Miller became dean and CEO of Johns Hopkins in 1997. Before this, Miller was chief of the Johns Hopkins Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine. An anesthesiologist, Miller has published more than 150 scientific papers and other works on cardiovascular effects of anesthetic drugs and vascular smooth muscle relaxation.
Becker’s Hospital Review, which focuses on business and legal issues for hospital leadership, selected its winners from among hospitals and health systems within the contiguous 48 states and the District of Columbia. According to the publication, “leaders on this list represent some of the most respected and talented leaders in the health care industry.” The selection of leaders was based on nominations, inclusion in previous Becker's Hospital Review lists and research conducted by the Becker's editorial team.
