While we look forward to the opening the North Building in February 2020, there is much to be done to prepare. With your help, we are confident we will exceed all expectation. Our executive leadership and medical executive teams have meet and decided ALL physicians and advanced practice providers will be required to sign up for a tour. You can sign up here. Please note that the tours are broken down into medicine and surgery.

Tours will be approximately 45-60 minutes in length and you will need to bring your badge to the tour. Your badge will be scanned for proof of attendance and is needed to access all areas of the North building. One hour of CME credit will be provided for completing the tour.

If you would like to set up a tour with your subsection or group at a different date/time, please contact Michelle at or 301-896-3678.

New Enterprisewide Patient Identification Policy

New Enterprisewide

Patient safety begins with staff members ensuring that patient identification is accurate and complete. A new Johns Hopkins Medicine Identification of Patients Policy recently took effect across the health system to improve patient identification, from scheduling and registration throughout the continuum of care. The policy, which consolidates 26 unique health system policies, is integral to ensuring that the right patient receives the right care, and their information is documented in the right record. 

Please review the JHM Identification of Patients Policy.
