Jon McKeeby


Federal Leadership of the Year

NIH CIO Jon McKeeby always wanted to be a hospital administrator, and he has been for the last 14 years. His proudest moment of 2020 is creating asymptomatic testing for COVID-19 using NIH’s electronic health record and lab system, as well as the center’s response to the pandemic through telehealth advances. The center has about 90 patients currently and 250 outpatients, and cameras and microphones in the Intensive Care Unit are helping protect them and staff. “This was a good introduction to the telework world,” McKeeby said, “But I think there still needs to be time when you have meetings and people together.”
