Jonathan S. Lewin MD has begun his tenure as executive VP for health affairs, executive director of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center, and president, CEO, and chair of the Board of Directors of Emory Healthcare. 

Prior to joining Emory in February, Lewin (shown above) was senior vice president for integrated health care delivery and co-chair of strategic planning for Johns Hopkins Medicine. He also served as professor and chair of the Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Sciences at Johns Hopkins University and radiologist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

During his first few days on the job at Emory, Lewin noted a "palpable energy" throughout the health sciences center, including the School of Nursing. 

"It's clear that we're on a trajectory that few other institutions can match," he said. "We're not doing only health care delivery, only research, or only education. Because we have all three missions, and we value them equally, we're privileged to have a unique opportunity to serve humanity in a profound way and to make Atlanta, the region, the nation, and the world a better place."
