Sisson, McGuire and Conway Accept Roles with the Office of Johns Hopkins Physicians

The Office of Johns Hopkins Physicians (OJHP) is thrilled to announce that Dr. Stephen Sisson has accepted the position of VP, Clinical Operations effective July 1st.  In his new role, Steve will be responsible for overseeing operational integration of ambulatory services throughout Johns Hopkins Medicine. Steve will work to establish metrics and monitor performance on patient experience, physician productivity, operational efficiency, patient access and communication and practice standards.

Steve came to Hopkins in 1990 for internship and residency after graduating magna cum laude from Duke University and with research honors from Tufts University School of Medicine. Following residency and chief residency, he joined the faculty as a member of the Division of General Internal Medicine, where he will still maintain his clinical practice.   In 2013, he assumed the position of Executive Director, Ambulatory Services at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. In that position, he has led the process of clinically integrating ambulatory practices on the East Baltimore campus. He has also led the inclement weather open/close process, championed operational and safety workflows for when providers leave Johns Hopkins, launched an ambulatory patient and family advisory council, developed an ambulatory operations dashboard, and created an accountability model to monitor and improve the ambulatory patient experience.

The Office is also pleased to announce that Dr. Maura McGuire and Dr. Sarah Johnson Conway have accepted expanded roles as well.

Dr. McGuire completed medical school, residency and fellowship training at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine after receiving degrees in Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.  She is Assistant Dean for part time faculty at the School of Medicine, and holds faculty appointments at the Armstrong Institute of Quality and Safety, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, and the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing.

Among her honors are the ACP’s Theodore E Woodward Award for Outstanding Contributions in Medical Education, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine’s Professor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching in Clinical Sciences, the Alpha-Omega Alpha Part-Time Faculty Teaching Award, and the 125 Top Training Organization award.  She continues to practice general internal medicine at JHCP’s Remington office.

Dr. Sarah Johnson Conway has accepted the position of Medical Director, Accountable Care effective July 1st.  In this role, she will work toward establishing best practice care models, transforming care, and strengthening work in the community through implementation of an FQHC partnership.

Dr. Conway graduated from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.  She completed her internal medicine residency at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in 2016 and subsequently served as the inaugural JHM Fellow in Health Systems Management.
