Donald W. Fisher, Ph.D., CAE, AMGA

March 2, 1946 – March 26, 2017

It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Donald W. Fisher, Ph.D., CAE, AMGA president and chief executive officer. Don has been at the helm of AMGA since 1980, leading it to become the voice of the nation’s most prestigious multispecialty medical groups and integrated systems of care. He had a tremendous impact on American health care as a strong advocate for coordinated, integrated delivery systems, working to make his vision of superior patient care a reality.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made to the AMGA Foundation in honor of Don. If you would like to send a note of condolence to the family, please send to AMGA headquarters (1 Prince Street, Alexandria, VA 22314, attention Ms. Randi Bolden).
