MR. Robert S. brown
Mr. Brown holds a Masters of Health Administration from Cornell University. He spent 20 years working in hospitals, primarily developing and operating state-of-the-art Cardiovascular Diagnostic Laboratories. During that time, Mr. Brown spent four years in Saudi Arabia where he established the most sophisticated cardiovascular laboratory in the Kingdom at the King Faisal University Medical Center.
Mr. Brown transitioned into publishing as the Founding Publisher and Executive Editor of HealthCare Press, publisher of The Medicaid Letter—the nation's leading Medicaid trade publication, subscribed to by the White House, all 50 state governments, and the majority of the health plans and non-profit hospitals in the United States. The Medicaid Letter was called "the single best resource available on health care delivery to vulnerable populations” by James E. Bailey, M.D., MPH, Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of TN, Memphis. In addition, a national MEDSTAT survey found The Medicaid Letter to be "one of the key sources of information for state health and human service agency directors." Other HealthCare Press publications included The Digest of Managed Health Care and development of the American Journal of Health Administration.
Mr. Brown also founded the Outland Books publishing company, publisher of the #1 best-selling calendar in the U.S., U.K., and Canada in 2003 - 2004, and what became the best-selling first-year calendar title in history—Presidential MisSpeak: The Very Curious Language of George W. Bush. Outland also published calendars and books for the likes of PBS’s This Old House and 20th Century FOX, as well as partnering with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children on a school safety program based on Outland’s acclaimed children’s book, Where’s My Puppy?, a story derived from a real-life child abduction.
Mr. Brown grew up in Wellesley, Massachusetts where he was captain of both his high school varsity soccer and wrestling teams, and was a 2-time All-State wrestler. He also set the high school record in the 800 meter run, required of all non-track-team students each year. He then wrestled collegiately for Ohio Wesleyan University and, as a 4-year varsity soccer player, was named to the NCAA Mid-West All-Tournament Soccer Team, and was voted Runner-Up as the tournament's Most Valuable Player.
Now, as Executive Director of The Johns Hopkins House, Inc., Mr. Brown brings his enthusiasm and entrepreneurial background to the effort of saving and restoring Whites Hall, one of Maryland’s most historic properties.
