Learn about The Office of Well-Being

Message from Our Leaders

We are here to support you, the incredible people who work at Johns Hopkins Medicine, whether you care for patients in one of our hospitals or clinic sites or you support the mission of Johns Hopkins by ensuring our facilities are safe and operations run smoothly. 

Many factors impact our well-being. At work, our well-being may be influenced by the way our systems are structured, the ways we relate to each other throughout the work day, the ways we support each other in challenging times, and in how we find meaning in our work. Let’s face it – working in healthcare can be rewarding, and it can also be stressful.

It is our goal to help make the work you do easier. One way we can do this is through advancing solutions to reduce inefficiencies so you spend less time in Epic and more time engaging in the parts of patient care that brings the most meaning.  We want to help you access available resources to support your well-being.  And, because working in collaborative and engaged teams is important for our well-being, and foundational to the work we do together, we provide well-being focused resources and support for leaders and managers.

Our team is here for you. Learn more about our model for well-being at Johns Hopkins as well as our Healthy at Hopkins resources.
