Honour for Foundation Board Member

We are delighted to congratulate Professor Malcolm Fisher AO, a Past President of ANZICS and a current Foundation Board member, who  was uniquely  honoured recently by Sydney’s new Royal North Shore Hospital. At a special ceremony late last year a plaque  was unveiled naming the hospital’s Intensive Care Department the Malcolm Fisher Department of Intensive Care.

Professor Fisher joined the then new ICU in 1977 and was Head of Department from 1982 until 2003 and retired in 2012.

At the reception, Professor Fisher emphasised the contribution of the teams he had led and the role of nurses, doctors, allied health staff, administrators and the supporters who had made the unit a centre of excellence.
