Sibley Memorial Hospital joins Johns Hopkins Medicine

In a move to address a growing need for integrated regional health care services for patients, officials of Sibley Memorial Hospital and The Johns Hopkins Health System signed documents on Nov. 1 to integrate the Washington, D.C.–based Sibley Hospital into the Johns Hopkins Health System.

Under terms of this transaction, which does not involve any financial exchange, Sibley has become a wholly owned subsidiary corporation of JHHS and a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine. Sibley will retain its commitment to the local community and members of the existing medical staff, along with its name and current leadership and board of trustees. The hospital will now have access to the research and clinical programs at Johns Hopkins.

Sibley will operate under the JHHS governance structure, in the same manner as The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Howard County General Hospital and Suburban Hospital.

“As a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine, Sibley will be a key force in the development of an integrated system of care for the national capital region, focused on improving health by providing access to state-of-the-art clinical medicine that’s supported by a strong base of research and medical education,” said Edward D. Miller, dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine.
