Michael Fisher became president and CEO of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in January 2010.
Fisher and his leadership team are expanding the impact of Cincinnati Children’s patient care, education and research activities. Last year, Cincinnati Children’s had nearly 1.2 million patient encounters, serving children from its primary service area of Southwest Ohio, all of the other 49 states and 53 countries.
In the Greater Cincinnati community, Fisher is deeply committed to addressing pediatric health issues. A top priority is assuring access to quality care for children insured through Medicaid by launching the Cincinnati Children’s Health Network, which provides a medical home and improved healthcare for thousands of children.
The medical center also launched initiatives to reduce prematurity and infant mortality, including education / intervention efforts in high-risk neighborhoods and by leading a statewide research collaborative funded by the March of Dimes. Last year, the medical center provided more than $500 million in community benefit including charitable patient care, subsidized health services and community outreach.
In the industry, Fisher is increasingly seen as a leader and spokesperson for organizations of children’s hospitals. He chairs the Children’s Hospital’s Solutions for Patient Safety − a national network of more than 80 children’s hospitals. He is the 2014 board chair for the Ohio Children’s Hospital Association and serves on the national Children’s Hospital Association’s Medicaid Reform CEO Steering Committee and the Public Policy Committee.
Fisher’s deep business and leadership experience has had a significant impact on the hospital’s operations and growth:
Prior to his appointment at Cincinnati Children’s, Fisher was president and CEO of Premier Manufacturing Support Services, president and CEO of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, and for five years served on the board of trustees of Cincinnati Children’s. He began his career as an associate director of athletics at Northwestern University. He is a graduate of Stanford University. Over the years, Fisher has provided board and philanthropic leadership to a range of not-for-profit and civic causes. He and his wife, Suzette, have four children.
