Jill Crank, C.R.N.P., M.S.N., M.P.H.
Nurse Practitioner, Internal Medicine
Jill Crank is known among her colleagues for her clinical acumen and dedication to her patients. She consistently receives the highest marks on her Clinician and Group Survey-Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CG-CAHPS) patient experience scores, and also achieves the highest or near-highest quality metric scores in her office. Perhaps most notable about N.P. Crank’s exceptional work is her expertise in HIV care and sexual health, proven through her work at the John G. Bartlett Specialty Practice and with the transgender population. A provider at the Johns Hopkins Center for Transgender Health, N.P. Crank is recognized as a leader for her care of transgender patients in Baltimore, and has been invited to several speaking engagements on the subject. Her work with several hundred transgender patients has provided essential and exceptional care to this underserved population. N.P. Crank is undoubtedly deserving of Johns Hopkins Community Physicians inaugural Advanced Practice Provider (APP) of the Year Award.
