EDWARD MILLER served as chief executive officer of Johns Hopkins Medicine and the 13th dean of The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine until his retirement on June 30, 2012.
As part of Dr. Miller’s vision to improve access through the development of a regional, integrated health care delivery system, Howard County General Hospital was acquired and integrated into Johns Hopkins Medicine. Dr. Miller also led the effort to integrate Suburban Hospital and Health System in Bethesda, Maryland, Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., and All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida, into Johns Hopkins Medicine.
Under Dr. Miller’s leadership, Johns Hopkins Medicine broadened its international presence to include relationships with hospitals and other health care-related institutions in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, including an agreement to help Malaysia develop its first fully integrated private four-year graduate medical school and teaching hospital.
One of his most significant accomplishments as Dean/CEO has been the massive rebuilding and renovation projects that have transformed the East Baltimore medical campus into a medical center where the most modern of buildings sit among the most historic including one of the largest hospital construction projects in the nation – two new state-of-the-art hospitals for adult and pediatric patients. Other campus construction projects completed include clinical and research buildings for the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Broadway Research Building, the Anne and Mike Armstrong Medical Educational Building, and the new Robert H. and Clarice Smith Building that is part of the Wilmer Eye Institute.
Under Dr. Miller’s direction, a new school of medicine curriculum, Genes to Society, was developed and introduced, representing the first wholesale academic overhaul at the school in two decades.
He also served as a Board Director of Millennium Pharmaceuticals, a NASDAQ listed biotechnology company, until it was acquired by Takeda Pharmaceuticals.
An anesthesiologist who has authored or co-authored more than 150 scientific papers, abstracts and book chapters, Dr. Miller joined Johns Hopkins in 1994 as professor and director of the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine.
