|All Children's Joins Johns Hopkins Medicine|
All Children's Hospital is now a part of the Johns Hopkins Health System (JHHS) as a fully integrated member of Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM). All Children's becomes the first US hospital outside of the Baltimore/Washington DC region to achieve membership within JHM, which includes The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System.
"This is a momentous occasion, the beginning of a new chapter in the history of All Children's Hospital," said Gary Carnes, President & CEO of All Children's Health System. "Throughout its 84-year history, All Children's has grown with the needs of children to become a statewide referral center for the best in pediatric care. The goal has always been to become a national leader, not only in clinical care, but also in teaching and research to benefit future generations of children in Florida and beyond. As part of Johns Hopkins Medicine, All Children's value as a key community asset will increase exponentially. All Children's top-notch clinical care will evolve into the future with the addition of world-class teaching and research opportunities for which Johns Hopkins Medicine is renowned. Our region and the state of Florida stand to benefit from the economic impact that such growth entails."
"We welcome All Children's to the Hopkins family and we join the leadership of All Children's in viewing this integration as an opportunity that allows both partners to continue their respective mission-centric work in children's health care," said Edward D. Miller, M.D., Dean and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine. "We also believe it increases All Children's value as a key community asset, extending benefits near and beyond to the children in need of top-notch clinical care by adding the advantages of the world-class teaching and research opportunities that Johns Hopkins Medicine will bring."
Ronald R. Peterson, President of The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System and Executive Vice President of JHM, noted that Johns Hopkins is the birthplace of modern pediatrics and embraces this chance to grow. "Integrating with such an outstanding pediatric medical center as All Children's Hospital offers benefits that will extend far beyond our respective campuses. Johns Hopkins' commitment to its own community and to its patients has never wavered in more than a century, and we know that All Children's shares a similar commitment to its own community and patients. It is this shared vision that we will build upon with this new integration."
