Johns Hopkins Medicine CEO to retire
Daniels said Miller's tenure "has been nothing short of extraordinary" and credited him with overseeing construction of new hospital towers, overseas expansion and a redesign of the medicine school's curriculum that "anticipates the future practice of medicine." Miller, 68, is an anesthesiologist who became dean, CEO and the university's vice president for medicine in 1997 after serving in that capacity on an interim basis since 1996, according to the letter.
Daniels wrote that he has appointed two co-chairmen of the effort to find a successor. Johns Hopkins Medicine comprises the School of Medicine and Johns Hopkins Health System.
