New EVP for Health Affairs

To the Emory Community:

It is with great excitement that I inform you that Jonathan S. Lewin, MD, will be Emory’s next executive vice president for health affairs.

Following a thorough search, Jon stood out among a field of excellent candidates from around the world. The Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees has approved his appointment as executive vice president for health affairs, executive director of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center, president and CEO of Emory Healthcare, and chair of the Board of Directors of Emory Healthcare.

Jon comes to us from Johns Hopkins University, where he is senior vice president for integrated healthcare delivery and co-chair for strategic planning for Johns Hopkins Medicine. He also serves as professor and chair of the Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science at Johns Hopkins University, as well as radiologist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, with secondary appointments as professor of oncology, neurosurgery, and biomedical engineering.

Jon’s exemplary leadership record demonstrates his ability to work collaboratively with stakeholders across the academic health center and the university to develop and implement strategic plans that focus on integration of the academic and clinical missions.

Jon will begin his new role on February 1, 2016.

Please join me in welcoming Jon to the Emory community.
