Johns Hopkins Hospital

The Johns Hopkins Hospital is the teaching hospital and biomedical research facility of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, located in Baltimore, the U.S. state of Maryland. It was founded using money from a bequest by philanthropist Johns Hopkins. The Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine are the founding institutions of modern American medicine and are the birthplace of numerous traditions including "rounds", "residents" and "housestaff". Many medical specialties were formed at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, including neurosurgery, by Harvey Williams Cushing; endocrinology by Alfred Blalock; pediatrics (Park) and child psychiatry, by Leo Kanner.

The Johns Hopkins Hospital is widely regarded as one of the world's greatest hospitals. It was ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the best overall hospital in America for 21 consecutive years until supplanted by the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in 2012. The hospital's main medical campus in East Baltimore is served by the eastern terminus of the Baltimore Metro Subway.

Famous quotes containing the words johns hopkins, hospital, johns and/or hopkins:

    An art whose limits depend on a moving image, mass audience, and industrial production is bound to differ from an art whose limits depend on language, a limited audience, and individual creation. In short, the filmed novel, in spite of certain resemblances, will inevitably become a different artistic entity from the novel on which it is based.
    George Bluestone, U.S. educator, critic. “The Limits of the Novel and the Limits of the Film,” Novels Into Film, Johns Hopkins Press (1957)

    The church is a sort of hospital for men’s souls, and as full of quackery as the hospital for their bodies. Those who are taken into it live like pensioners in their Retreat or Sailor’s Snug Harbor, where you may see a row of religious cripples sitting outside in sunny weather.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The modern woman is the curse of the universe. A disaster, that’s what. She thinks that before her arrival on the scene no woman ever did anything worthwhile before, no woman was ever liberated until her time, no woman really ever amounted to anything.
    —Adela Rogers St. Johns (1894–1988)

    The effect of studying masterpieces is to make me admire and do otherwise.
    —Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889)
