President & CEO
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
Michael Fisher became president and CEO of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in January 2010.
Fisher and his leadership team continue to expand 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, and from all of the other 49 states and 53 countries outside the U.S.
Fisher is deeply committed to addressing pediatric health issues in the Greater Cincinnati community. 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 on hospital safety. He chairs the Children’s Hospital’s Solutions for Patient Safety – a national network of more than 80 children’s hospitals.
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.
