Johns Hopkins Medicine Appoints Robert A. Kasdin as Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer

Johns Hopkins Medicine announced the appointment of Robert A. Kasdin to the newly created role of senior vice president and chief operating officer. Kasdin comes to Johns Hopkins Medicine from Columbia University, where he has been senior executive vice president since 2002. He starts on July 1, 2015. As Johns Hopkins Medicine’s first senior vice president and chief operating officer, Kasdin will partner with leadership to drive organization-wide change within a rapidly evolving environment. He will be responsible for overall operations, including strategic direction, administration of existing programs and development of new initiatives to ensure that Johns Hopkins Medicine’s strategic imperatives are achieved or exceeded. Before joining Columbia, Kasdin served as the executive vice president and chief financial officer of the University of Michigan, treasurer and chief investment officer for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the vice president and general counsel for Princeton University Investment Company. He began his career as a corporate attorney at Davis Polk & Wardwell.

Rockefeller, Johns Hopkins Behind Horrific Human Syphilis Experiments, Allege Guatemalan Victims in Lawsuit

Over 750 victims have sued The Rockefeller Foundation, the Johns Hopkins Hospital, the Johns Hopkins University, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and the Johns Hopkins Health System Corporation, alleging that they were the driving force behind human experiments in which vulnerable populations of Guatemalans were deceived and intentionally exposed to syphilis, gonorrhea and other venereal diseases and pathogens, without giving any informed consent. The experiments targeted school children, orphans, psychiatric hospital patients, prison inmates and military conscripts. The Obama Administration apologized to Guatemala for the Guatemala Experiments in 2010. The Administration tasked the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues to investigate the experiments. The details of the experiments were deliberately hidden from the world, and remained so until the Commission published its report in September 2011, confirming that barbaric human experiments constituting human rights violations occurred, for example: prostitutes were infected with venereal disease and then provided for sex to subjects for intentional transmission of the disease; subjects were inoculated by injection of syphilis spirochetes into the spinal fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord, under the skin, and on mucous membranes; an emulsion containing syphilis or gonorrhea was spread under the foreskin of the penis in male subjects; the penis of male subjects was scraped or scarified and then coated with the emulsion containing syphilis or gonorrhea; a woman from the psychiatric hospital was injected with syphilis, developed skin lesions and wasting, and then had gonorrheal pus from a male subject injected into both of her eyes. Many of the Guatemalans developed venereal disease. Most were never treated. Researchers subjected the Guatemalans to repeated blood draws, lumbar punctures and cisternal punctures of the suboccipital portion of the brain, gynecological examinations, touching and penetration of sexual organs, and forced or coerced sexual contact. Key Rockefeller and Johns Hopkins researchers involved in the Guatemala Experiments, were also behind the now infamous Tuskegee experiments, in which 600 impoverished African-American sharecroppers were never informed they had syphilis, and were given placebos rather than real medicine. The researchers watched while the experiment subjects wasted away and infected their wives and children with the disease. The Tuskegee experiments were halted after being exposed by a whistleblower. The Guatemala victims have also sued Bristol-Myers Squibb, which supplied penicillin necessary for the Guatemala Experiments. The case has been filed in the Circuit Court in Baltimore City, Maryland. The victims are represented by three law firms: Meridian 361 International Law Group, PLLC of Portland, Maine; Escritorio Juridico Rodriguez Fajardo y Asociados of Caracas, Republica Bolivariana de Venezuela; and Salsbury, Clements, Bekman, Marder & Adkins of Baltimore, Maryland.

Johns Hopkins Hospital and Union Reaches Tentative Contract Agreement

Johns Hopkins Hospital and a union representing 2,000 service, maintenance and technical workers reached a tentative contract agreement early after months of tense negotiation. The deal includes raises as high as 38% for low-wage workers over the next four and a half years. Members of 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East are expected to vote on the proposal July 10 and July 11, 2014. The proposed contract falls short of the union's original demands, but leadership said they are pleased with the agreement. The union wanted Hopkins to increase pay for workers who had been with the hospital for at least 15 years to $15 an hour. The union also wanted $14 an hour pay for other workers. The hospital agreed to raise wages to $15 an hour for workers with 20 years, experience and to set pay at $14.50 an hour for workers with 15 years experience.
