JHM establishes new Office of Johns Hopkins Physicians

To align the needs and direction of physicians in the Johns Hopkins Health System with those of faculty clinicians in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Edward D. Miller, dean of the medical faculty and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine, announced last week the creation of the Office of Johns Hopkins Physicians, to be headed by a senior vice president and a deputy.

William Baumgartner, he said, will serve as JHM senior vice president and Steven Kravet as deputy. Baumgartner is vice dean for clinical affairs and president of the School of Medicine Clinical Practice Association. Kravet is president of Johns Hopkins Community Physicians. Both will continue in those roles.

Baumgartner and Kravet will coordinate the activities of the Clinical Practice Association, Johns Hopkins Community Physicians and all other physicians now part of or joining JHM, regardless of entity or location.
