The Johns Hopkins Health System Corporation

The Johns Hopkins Health System Corporation (JHHS) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing the highest quality patient health care in the treatment and prevention of human illness.  JHHS is an academically based health system consisting of:

  • The Johns Hopkins Hospital, a world-renowned academic medical center that provides a comprehensive range of state-of-the-art tertiary and quaternary care and is consistently recognized as one of America’s best hospitals.

  • Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Inc., a not-for-profit organization that operates a community-based teaching hospital offering a broad range of inpatient and outpatient services as well as long-term care facility.

JHHS’ most important collaboration is with The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.  This collaboration is known as “Johns Hopkins Medicine”, a vehicle for internal operational coordination and a united voice for external initiatives.  Johns Hopkins Medicine allows these two distinct yet interdependent organizations to respond in an integrated fashion to opportunities and pressures affecting the Johns Hopkins medical enterprise.  Two important operational entities of Johns Hopkins Medicine are Johns Hopkins HealthCare LLC and The Johns Hopkins Home Care Group, Inc.
