The Roger C. Lipitz Center for Integrated Health Care
The Roger C. Lipitz Center for Integrated Health Care and the Eugene and Mildred Lipitz Professorship were created in 1998 through a generous gift from Roger Lipitz through the Lipitz Family Foundation to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The Lipitz Center is directed by Karen Davis, PhD, who is the Eugene and Mildred Lipitz Professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management. In 2013 she succeeded Chad Boult, MD, MPH, MBA, the Center's first Director and the first Lipitz Professor.
The Lipitz Center, located at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, is committed to improving the health and quality of life for people with complex health care needs by conducting research and disseminating new knowledge. The Center is also committed to preparing the next generation of leaders in this discipline. We strive to discover and disseminate practical, cost-effective approaches to providing comprehensive, coordinated, compassionate health care to chronically ill people and their families. The Center's multidisciplinary activities span Johns Hopkins University's Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Public Health.

Lipitz Center for Integrated Health Care will become recognized as the nation’s leading source of health services research to develop policies and identify, test, evaluate, and spread service delivery and payment changes that contribute to excellence in integrated care for adults with complex care needs and prepare leaders and champions of outstanding integrated care systems.
