Anadolu Medical Center is a Joint Commission International-accredited, general acute-care hospital with centers of excellence in oncology, general surgery, cardiac care, neurosciences, women's health, IVF and orthopedics. It has been affiliated with Johns Hopkins Medicine since 2001 and is one of Turkey's premier health care facilities.
“John Crossley brings broad nursing and health care management expertise,” says Harris Benny, chief executive officer of Johns Hopkins Medicine International. “His experience at Hopkins and in Turkey will facilitate the sharing of best practices between Baltimore and Istanbul, reinforce the hospital’s position as one of the region’s health care leaders and create new opportunities for the Anadolu Medical Center’s further successful development.”
Earlier in his career, Crossley was nurse manager of the Emergency Department at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. He has more than two decades of health care leadership experience, including his roles as chief nursing officer at Parkland Hospital, a tertiary academic medical center in Dallas, Texas (USA), and as executive vice president for quality and chief nursing officer at Scott and White (Texas, USA), a 680-physician, multispecialty group practice with three hospitals and 22 community clinics affiliated with the Texas A&M University School of Medicine. He also headed the Division of Nursing at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center (USA), and served as senior vice president of nursing at University Hospitals of Cleveland (Ohio, USA). While at M.D. Anderson he led that institution to Magnet Recognition for Excellence in Nursing Practice.
Among his other awards and distinctions, Crossley was named as one of 12 “Nurse Leaders 2004” by the American Organization of Nurse Executives. In 2000, he was named to a five-year term on the National Advisory Council on Nurse Education and Practice, the senior nursing policy body of the United States Department of Health and Human Services. Crossley earned his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania and an M.B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Finance.
