CEO John T. Fox: Focusing on Culture at Emory Healthcare
John T. Fox is president and CEO of Emory Healthcare in Atlanta, where he leads one of Georgia's largest and most comprehensive healthcare systems. Mr. Fox oversees more than 12,000 employees and physicians, $1.7 billion in net revenue and 1,739 patient beds. To help achieve excellence in clinical outcomes, patient safety and service at Emory's four hospitals and two large physician groups, Mr. Fox and other Emory leaders are expanding various elements of the system's culture, including fairness and justice, transparency and cultural diversity.
Prior to joining Emory Healthcare in 1999, Mr. Fox served 10 years as executive vice president of Clarian Health in Indianapolis, and before that, he was vice president of Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. While in Indianapolis, Mr. Fox co-led merger discussions between Methodist Health System, IU Medical Center and Riley Children's Hospital, resulting in the formation of Clarian Health in 1995.
Mr. Fox is actively involved in healthcare policy. Former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin named Mr. Fox chair of Atlanta's Health Services CEO Forum, which brings together Atlanta's healthcare service CEOs to improve the city's medical care, education, technology and research and development. In addition, Mr. Fox often speaks to professional and civic organizations to address healthcare delivery and public policy transformation amid escalating costs and inherent challenges of recruitment, retention and reimbursement.
