About Us

Nearly a century and a half ago, Johns Hopkins wrote a letter in which he established his vision and values for the medical center and the principles that would guide the enterprise. Those values continue to provide us with inspiration and direction today.

The individual voices combined to create something special, a beautiful harmony.
