Pillars of the Promise of Medicine


The Johns Hopkins name is synonymous with pushing the boundaries of medical discovery and innovation for the sake of humanity. The work that we do today is helping to lay the foundation for the future of medicine.


Discovery has always been at the core of our tripartite mission. Our institution was built on innovative thinking and a pioneering spirit to teach, to discover and to heal. That essence powers all that we do.

Human Connection

Compassionate connections between our patients and our colleagues help us shape a better tomorrow. At Johns Hopkins, these connections have never been more important. They are critical to how we will continuously innovate in medicine.


There’s nothing we can do alone that we can’t do better together. A collective, relentless drive to make new discoveries and create better treatments for patients is in our DNA. This is evident in every area of our mission, from advancements in genetic medicine to the reimagining of how medicine is taught, to everyday patient diagnosis and treatment.

In 2014, The Johns Hopkins Hospital celebrates its 125th anniversary.
