Miller, Peterson recognized with Maryland Speaker’s Medallion

Each year the speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates presents a medallion to a citizen in recognition of outstanding service to the state of Maryland. This year’s Speaker’s Medallion was presented jointly on Feb. 23 to two of Johns Hopkins’ leaders: Edward D. Miller, the Frances Watt Baker, M.D., and Lenox D. Baker Jr., M.D., Dean of the Medical Faculty and chief executive officer of Johns Hopkins Medicine, and Ronald Peterson, president of The Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Johns Hopkins Health System.

Speaker Michael Busch recognized Miller and Peterson for their dedication to operating “the finest hospital system in America, if not the world, for the past 20 years.” The speaker also recognized Johns Hopkins’ status as the leading recipient of funding from the National Institutes of Health.
