Jason M. Fisher, M.D.
Dedicated physician and Providence Holy Cross Foundation
board member with a heart for helping when & where he can
Jason Fisher, M.D., medical director of the emergency department at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, always knew he wanted to spend his career making a difference. Initially interested in sports medicine thanks to his lifelong love of “anything with a ball or a racket,” he found himself drawn
to emergency medicine during medical school rotations.
Dr. Fisher finds many elements of work in the emergency room similar to what he enjoys about team sports. “I love the fast pace, the variety and the teamwork,” he shares.
There’s no better place
According to Dr. Fisher, there’s no better place to practice emergency medicine than Providence Holy Cross. He calls it a “triple threat” for its unapparelled nursing staff, supportive patient-centric administration and highly collaborative team of physicians.
“Being a Magnet site, we draw the best and brightest nurses,” he says. “We count on them as our eyes and ears, and they’re amazing.”
He praises the patient-first spirit essential to the Providence Holy Cross culture. “At Holy Cross, the bottom line isn’t found on a spreadsheet, it’s what’s best for the patient. That’s a hospital where I want to work, a hospital where I want to be treated and a hospital where I want my family to be treated.”
Serving and giving to support what he believes in
A member of the Holy Cross Foundation Board since 2015, Dr. Fisher brings a unique “boots on the ground” perspective on what the hospital needs to best serve patients.
“When you believe in what you do every day, it’s easy to be a part of the Foundation that supports it,” says Dr. Fisher. “To get the best technology, the limiting factor is money a lot of the time. The Foundation partners with us to deliver better care to our patients.”
In addition to serving as a volunteer leader, Dr. Fisher supports Providence Holy Cross as a donor, both through his medical group, Vituity, and personally. “Vituity donates to the Foundation annually,” says Dr. Fisher. “We meet with our chief executive, Bernie Klein M.D., to make sure our giving is aligned with the hospital’s top initiatives for the year.”
A leader his colleagues respect, Dr. Fisher will serve as chief of staff beginning in 2023. “Our physicians are phenomenal,” he says. “There is so much collaboration, and that really hit home during COVID. I’m honored that the medical staff voted for me to hold the position of chief of staff. I want to help when and where I can.”
Together, we can provide care that transforms lives, now and for years to come.
