Jonathan S. Lewin, Emory's executive vice president for health affairs and president and CEO of Emory Healthcare, presented his first State of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center (WHSC) address on April 25. 

"The key takeaway is simply this: Our team shares a strong sense of purpose, we are gaining momentum, and we are going in the right direction — and we're going there on all cylinders," notes Lewin, who also serves as WHSC executive director.

Named for the legendary leader of the Coca-Cola Company, the Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center of Emory University was founded in 1966. It includes Emory University School of Medicine, Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, Rollins School of Public Health, Yerkes National Primate Research Center, Winship Cancer Institute and Emory Healthcare, the most comprehensive health care system in Georgia. 

Lewin began his tenure at the helm of WHSC on Feb. 1, 2016, after an intensive national search. He came to Emory from Johns Hopkins Medicine, where he served as senior vice president for integrated healthcare delivery and as co-chair for strategic planning. 

He was also professor and chair of the Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science at Johns Hopkins University as well as the radiologist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, with secondary appointments as professor of oncology, neurosurgery and biomedical engineering.
