President Dr. Richard Davis: Impacting Patients at Sibley Memorial Hospital

Richard "Chip" Davis, PhD, has served as president of Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., since July 2012.

Prior to joining Sibley, a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine, Dr. Davis served as vice president for innovation and patient safety for Johns Hopkins Medicine's Access Services as director of The Johns Hopkins Hospital's East Baltimore ambulatory operations. Dr. Davis joined Johns Hopkins in 1993.

In addition to looking after Sibley Memorial, Dr. Davis is a faculty member of The Johns Hopkins University's School of Public Health's division of health policy and management and the Care School of Business' business of medicine program. He has taught graduate-level courses for more than 10 years.

Even though he just recently took the top spot at Sibley, Dr. Davis' experience with hospitals and healthcare dates back to childhood. He was born wit ha congenital heart defect and underwent open-heart surgery when he was 9 years old, he told the Washington Post in 2012. "I think those early experiences really impacted the way I view the true role of a hospital. A hospital makes an impact on the patient from the moment they drive into the parking lot…It's a privilege to work in that environment every day."

Dr. Davis earned a masters degree in education from Harvard University and a PhD in health policy and management from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health.
