Lautzenheiser Named Chief Administrative Officer

We are thrilled to announce that Matthew Lautzenheiser, MHA, will serve as Chief Administrative Officer for the Department of Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Matt graduated from Marietta College in Ohio with a bachelor’s degree in management. He then earned a Master of Health Administration from Washington University in St. Louis. Following his administrative residency and physician practice management roles at St. Vincent Health in Indianapolis, he began his Hopkins tenure in 2002 as the administrator of the Division of Gastroenterology & Hepatology and the Division of Hematology. He later joined the finance team of Johns Hopkins Howard County Medical Center to expand his knowledge base in hospital finance. Matt returned to the DOM in 2008 as Assistant Administrator of Finance and then as Associate Administrator of Finance & Administration before beginning his role as Clinical Administrator in 2015.

After 22 years in the Department of Medicine, Matt has witnessed and navigated many of the ups and downs of academic medicine. His leadership proved imperative throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, when he led the DOM Incident Command Center, instituting both an immediate plan of action as well as preparations for future surges. Despite changing policies and even departmental leadership throughout his tenure, Matt has remained constant; steadfast in his commitment to our department. We look forward to what he can accomplish as the DOM Chief Administrative Officer. Please join us in congratulating Matt and thanking him for his many years of service to the Department of Medicine.
