Laurent Moreau, M.D., M.B.A.
Vice President for Global Initiatives
Dr. Laurent Moreau is the vice president for global initiatives for Johns Hopkins Medicine International, the global ambassador of Johns Hopkins Medicine. He collaborates with leaders across the Johns Hopkins enterprise to establish international strategies that advance Johns Hopkins Medicine’s mission to set the standard of excellence in medical education, research and clinical care and generate revenue to directly support the mission.
He also oversees day-to-day operations of the Global Services division, focused on developing sustainable, innovative collaborations that raise the standard of health care for patients around the world.
Since he joined Johns Hopkins Medicine International in 2012, Dr. Moreau has made significant contributions to several projects in the Middle East, most notably as managing director for Johns Hopkins Medicine’s joint venture in Saudi Arabia, Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare. This venture is the most complex and broad-reaching international project in our history. The shared goal is not only to create a health care organization that best serves the needs of 350,000 Saudi Aramco employees, retirees and their families, but also to evolve into a health system of excellence that provides enhanced specialty and subspecialty care.
The ongoing 10-year partnership has resulted in many significant achievements, including transitioning toward a more patient-centered, data-driven health care system; developing programs and services such as robotic surgery, cardiac surgery and complex electrophysiology; introducing a holistic palliative care program; creating an Office of Emergency Management; launching personalized care for patients with sickle cell disease; and developing a Center of Excellence in bariatric and weight management.
Previously, Dr. Moreau was medical director for a European-based insurance company. He also has more than 10 years of business consulting experience in the health care and insurance fields, as a manager at CSC Peat Marwick and a partner at Kadris Consultants. A physician by training, Dr. Moreau was heavily involved with Première Urgence–Aide Médicale Internationale (now Première Urgence Internationale), a nongovernmental organization serving populations suffering from humanitarian crises. He holds a medical doctorate from Paris Descartes University and a master’s degree in business administration from HEC Paris.
