Johns Hopkins Hospital searching for a new president: 5 things to know

A new president will lead The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, effective this summer, according to The Baltimore Sun.

The news came in an email from Ronald R. Peterson, president of The Johns Hopkins Hospital, president of the Johns Hopkins Health System and executive vice president of Johns Hopkins Medicine, all in Baltimore.

Here are five things to know about the issue.

1. Mr. Peterson cited Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins Medicine's growth, both in size and complexity, along with succession planning for leadership of the hospital, as reasons why he, Paul Rothman, dean of the medical faculty and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine, and trustees decided it was the right time to bring in a new president.

2. Mr. Peterson also said he is retiring in a few years and would like to ensure a smooth transition, and mentor the new hospital president, according to The Baltimore Sun.

3. Mr. Peterson, who has served as president of The Johns Hopkins Hospital for almost 20 years, will remain in his other role as executive vice president of Johns Hopkins Medicine. He will also retain the title of president of the Johns Hopkins Health System.

4. A search committee will help find the next president of The Johns Hopkins Hospital. The committee will be co-chaired by Mr. Peterson and Mr. Rothman.

5. A new president is expected to be in place by July 1.
