Announcing the Winners of the Second Annual Johns Hopkins Medicine Clinical Awards

Date: 12/01/2016

Under the leadership of Paul Rothman, dean of the medical faculty and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine, in 2015, the Office of Johns Hopkins Physicians launched an awards program, the Johns Hopkins Medicine Clinical Awards for Physicians and Care Teams. The program, now in its second year, is open to providers who practice in Johns Hopkins Medicine facilities, Johns Hopkins-employed or not, and recognizes multiple aspects of excellent patient care through six awards:

  • Physician of the Year
  • Armstrong Award for Excellence in Quality and Safety
  • Excellence in Service and Professionalism
  • Best Consulting Physician
  • Innovations in Clinical Care
  • Clinical Collaboration and Teamwork

All Johns Hopkins Medicine hospitals and Johns Hopkins Community Physicians select their winners after nomination and local committee review. Award winners for 2016 were honored Tuesday, Dec. 6, at a ceremony and reception at which Dean/CEO Rothman; Ronald R. Peterson, president of the Johns Hopkins Health System and executive vice president of Johns Hopkins Medicine; and others praised them for their contributions to Johns Hopkins Medicine.

“Congratulations to all the nominees and winners of this year’s clinical awards. Each of you stands out among your peers for demonstrating consistent dedication to providing exemplary patient care,” said Rothman.
