"We welcome Queenie in her important new role," said Brian Gragnolati, senior vice president of Johns Hopkins Medicine’s Community Division.

She knows how to nurture and leverage our most treasured asset—our employees—to not only obtain our business goals but more importantly, to make sure patients receive the compassionate and quality care they deserve."
Plater began her career at Sibley as an employment assistant. She quickly rose through the ranks and was named vice president and chief human resource officer in 2005. She was one of the executives instrumental in Sibley's integration with Johns Hopkins Medicine in 2010.
In addition to her accomplishments at Sibley, Plater is also co-chair of human resources for the District of Columbia Hospital Association.

In 2002, then Maryland governor, Parris Glendening, appointed Plater commissioner for Community Services Reimbursement Rate.
A resident of Bethesda, Maryland, Plater received her bachelor of science degree in organizational management from Washington Adventist University. She later obtained a master of science degree in applied behavioral science from the Johns Hopkins University.
"I am thrilled to join the JHM Community Division," said Plater. "It is an exciting time as we embark on strategic partner expansions. I’ve been fortunate to work closely with our industry’s human resource thought leaders in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. This is an ideal time for Johns Hopkins Medicine Community Division to be at the forefront of creating additional value for the communities we serve."
