Dr. Lisa Maragakis

Senior Director of Infection Prevention
Johns Hopkins Medicine

Female, WomanDr. Lisa Maragakis has been the leader of the Johns Hopkins Medicine coronavirus Incident Command Center since it opened about two months ago. She oversees response for Johns Hopkins Hospital and all of the health system’s member hospitals in Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Florida. She also oversees every department in the health system from supply chain, finance and marketing and communications.

She has become the face of the response to the pandemic to the staff signing off on internal emails covering treatment protocol and staff safety. She’s also part of Gov. Larry Hogan’s Maryland Coronavirus Response Team.

As the Senior Director of Infection prevention, she’s been a resource for media outlets across the United States and around the world and has become one of the leading authorities on the coronavirus. Despite all those responsibilities, she enters the command center with a smile and projects a calm that helps set the tone for the entire team.

Maragakis is also an associate professor of medicine and epidemiology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
