Redonda Miller, associate professor in the Division of General Internal Medicine, was named Senior Vice President of medical affairs for the Johns Hopkins Health System, effective Jan. 1, 2016.
Redonda currently serves as vice president of medical affairs for The Johns Hopkins Hospital, a position she has held since 2009. From the outset, as our system has grown, she has built productive, collegial working relationships with her peers at All Children's Hospital, Howard County General Hospital, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Sibley Memorial Hospital and Suburban Hospital. Informally, she has taken on the role of facilitating clinical initiatives across the health system, such as the influenza vaccination policy; sharing best practices and standardizing and centralizing processes, including credentialing and formulary management.
This new appointment represents formal recognition of her leadership in helping us to enhance coordination across the system as the health care industry continues to evolve and become more complex.
As part of her oversight as senior vice president for medical affairs for the health system, Redonda will continue to work with the vice presidents of medical affairs, clinical directors and medical staff to strengthen our efforts to provide safe, efficient and cost-effective health care. Together with her colleagues, she will also support improvements for medical staff in areas such as peer review, professionalism and learning requirements and develop new integration opportunities in areas such as health information management.
Redonda first came to Johns Hopkins as a medical student and completed her internship and residency in internal medicine at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. She served as an Assistant Chief of Service in 1996 and the following year joined the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine faculty as an assistant professor of medicine. She began distinguishing herself as a collaborator, with great success in developing councils and committees as an effective way to bring people and ideas together, particularly to address challenges and solve problems. In 2006, she was promoted to associate professor.
During her tenure, Redonda has served in a number of positions, including as associate program director of the Osler Residency Program, assistant dean for student affairs and vice chair of clinical operations for the Department of Medicine. She will continue to function in her present role as JHH Vice President Medical Affairs, responsible for the departments of medical staff administration, pharmacy, health information management, hospital epidemiology and infection control, spiritual care and chaplaincy and patient safety.
Redonda continues to co-chair Johns Hopkins Medicine's United Way Committee and the Maryland Hospital Association's Council on Clinical and Quality Issues. She has served on dozens of administrative, medical education, system innovation and quality improvement councils and committees at Johns Hopkins and is a member of several professional boards. A passionate advocate for women's health, she has also been a featured speaker at conferences and grand rounds around the country.
Redonda has demonstrated remarkable leadership abilities, a strong work ethic and extraordinary interpersonal skills, which will serve her well in her new role. Please join us in congratulating Redonda on this well-deserved appointment.
