Assistant Dean for Business Development & Strategic Partnerships

Former founding principle of a health care technology innovation incubator, Kenneth Dion finds opportunities for innovation and interprofessional cooperation for faculty and students and the integral role nursing plays in the advancement of health care.

“I’m not an ambitious salesman. Johns Hopkins is about making a difference in the world. That’s a common thread that runs through the faculty, staff, and students. My goal is to facilitate partnerships in Baltimore and around the globe to kick start these new initiatives.”

Kevin Sowers, MSN, RN, FAAN

Kevin Sowers, the first nurse ever to serve as president of the Johns Hopkins Health System, isn’t afraid to fail. What he worries about is not being able to use evidence gained through an unsuccessful project—or an error—to get it right next time. It all begins with empowering and building trust among nurses, who touch so many parts of the business model as they provide the pivotal patient care at its core. And he expects it to continue with a secret weapon: nurse practitioners. In the NP, Sowers sees a largely (an inexplicably) untapped answer to patient safety, to a physician and nurse shortage, to morale and staff retention issues. He’s not afraid to say he doesn’t yet know exactly what a new NP-enhanced business model would look like—one that better prepares nurses, physicians, and all hospital staff to work interprofessionally. But Sowers will assure you he’s going to try to find out, by trial and error if needs be.

 “My first goal is a listening tour because I don’t underestimate that I come to this organization not knowing everything.”
