Jonathan S. Lewin has joined Emory as executive vice president for health affairs; executive director of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center; and president, CEO, and chairman of Emory Healthcare.

Prior to joining Emory in February, Lewin was senior vice president for integrated health care delivery and co-chair for 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 as well as radiologist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, with secondary appointments as professor of oncology, neurosurgery, and biomedical engineering.

Regarded as a pioneer in interventional and intra-operative magnetic resonance imaging, Lewin has developed more than 20 patents and served as principal or co-principal investigator of more than $10 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health and other funding agencies. He is also a fellow of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and the American College of Radiology.

During his first few days on the job at Emory, Lewin detected what he called a palpable energy. “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.”
