Meet Our Leadership Team

A word from our leaders.

Jonathan M. Ellen, M.D.

President and Physician-in-Chief
Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital

“Culture is so important because it helps sustain a great place to work. Our culture is one of respect, of communication, of trust, and of embracing change. Our culture helps to heal and it helps to care. It takes collaboration of all our minds to make this happen.”


Joseph Conrod Sr., SPHR, MA

Director, Human Resources
Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital

"On behalf of the leadership team, I would like to welcome you to the leadership page for diversity, inclusion and cultural competency for Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.  These three words have a special meaning because they go beyond my professional career, but engrained within my personal life in general.  My professional career and personal experiences  has deepened my appreciation, understanding, and broaden my research of a demographic changing America.     
At Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, we believe that people with different backgrounds and experiences bring a broad base of ideas, concepts and perspectives.  If leveraged, it enhances our ability to achieve higher quality, positive outcomes and improved business results.  We truly value differences and believe that diverse perspectives are our true strength.”
Our main investment is our people.  Diversity, inclusion and cultural competency are integrated within our business and a big part our Culture.  We believe that these ingredients can be strategized to improve quality, enhance patient centric care and assist in eliminating racial and ethical disparities.  This prepares us to adequately address diverse populations for our patients and families, which not only includes racial and cultural differences, but all those qualities and characteristics that makes unique.”


James E. Page Jr., M.B.A.

Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer
Johns Hopkins Medicine

"Diversity and inclusion are integral to the excellence and success of any institution, but they are especially vital for academic medical centers like Johns Hopkins, where the promise of trust and healing is essential to the delivery of an extraordinary experience for each of our patients, employees, volunteers, trainees, suppliers and community members. 

Similar to places of worship, academic medical settings are places of trust. They are places where our communities come to be mended and find healing. With trust, each patient visiting Johns Hopkins Medicine can rest assured that our health care providers will offer the best possible family- and patient-centered care. With trust, our employees, suppliers and trainees can expect to encounter a workplace where respect prevails and individual dignity is valued. With trust, our community members can count on outreach from Johns Hopkins Medicine that is aimed at strengthening families, individuals and neighborhoods.

On behalf of the Johns Hopkins Medicine Office of Diversity and Inclusion, I thank you for your commitment to diversity, inclusion and cultural competence, and challenge each and every one of us to continue to stand behind our promise of respect, dignity and trust for all."
