Stuart Erdman, a top financial officer for the Johns Hopkins Health System, will retire at the end of the year, the health system said Tuesday.
The health system's assistant treasurer and senior director of finance, Erdman's career at Hopkins spans more than 32 years. His work goes beyond Hopkins' financial health to development of policies set by the Maryland Hospital Association and state health care regulators, according to health system President Ronald R. Peterson.
"In that way, he has had an impact on hospitals and health care throughout Maryland," Peterson said in a statement.
Two other Hopkins financial officials will assume Erdman's duties: Tom Trzcinski, director of treasury services, and Ed Beranek, director of regulatory compliance.
Erdman first worked at Johns Hopkins Hospital from 1971 to 1977, serving as an accountant and an assistant controller. He worked at two other Maryland hospitals before returning to Hopkins in 1987, when the health system was formed.
Erdman also has served as board chairman of the Helping Up Mission, a Baltimore nonprofit that serves the poor and homeless.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
