FY20 Annual Report: President's Letter

A Message From the President

Steven J. Kravet, M.D., M.B.A. 


Welcome to the Fiscal Year 2020 Annual Report of Johns Hopkins Community Physicians (JHCP). To put it bluntly, FY20 was not easy. It presented all of us with challenges – professional, clinical, and personal – that we continue to overcome together. This report provides a platform for sharing the stories of success and achievement across our organization from that tumultuous year.

Johns Hopkins Community Physicians is a diverse group of more than 1500 health care heroes. The more than 500 providers and affiliates on our team include primary care and specialty-care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and surgeons. Our practices and administrative spaces extend across the state of Maryland and Washington, D.C. The geographic footprint of our organization is vast and continues to grow.

COVID-19 fundamentally changed the way we deliver care to our patients. We have adopted new practices to maintain the safety of our teams and communities with strength and determination. In this report, you will read stories about JHCP’s pivot to telemedicine, recruitment and hiring efforts for the Baltimore Convention Center Field Hospital, a new Mentorship Program from our Diversity Council and much, much more.

While we cannot include every story and accomplishment of FY20 in this report, I hope that the resolve, resilience and creativity of our entire organization is reflected in the few that we selected. To me, these stories prove that no trial is too great for our staff and providers to overcome and that no challenge can disrupt our focus of providing excellent patient-centered care.

My most sincere thank you to our patients, staff, providers, Board Members, friends and supporters for contributing to our unprecedented year.

All my best,


Steven J. Kravet, M.D., M.B.A.
