About Johns Hopkins
From the 1889 opening of The Johns Hopkins Hospital, to the opening of the School of Medicine four years later, there emerged the concept of combining research, teaching and patient care. This model, the first of its kind, would lead to a national and international reputation for excellence and discovery.
Today, Johns Hopkins uses one overarching name—Johns Hopkins Medicine—to identify its entire medical enterprise. This $5 billion system unites the physicians and scientists of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine with the health professionals and facilities that make up the broad, integrated Johns Hopkins Health System. The Johns Hopkins Hospital and its affiliated hospitals and clinics has been ranked #1 by US News and World Report for the last 20 years. Its commitment to medical education, clinical care and research has made it one of the premier international institutions.
