Michael Fisher, MD, a gastroenterologist with Digestive Health Associates in Easton, recently made a donation to the University of Maryland Memorial Hospital Foundation to honor of the Radiology Department in addition to other team members for the professional and excellent care he received while being treated at UM Shore Medical Center in Easton.

“In the midst of my fears, uncertainty and pain, I met the most caring team of professionals right here in my own back yard,” said Dr. Fisher in a letter written to the UM Memorial Hospital Foundation. “They want nothing more than to see you get healthy again, and that feeling transforms you.”

The Everyday Hero program provides patients, visitors and staff members with the opportunity to recognize and thank any member or team at UM Shore Regional Health, who made a positive difference in a visit or stay, by making a financial contribution of any size to the UM Memorial Hospital Foundation or the UM Chester River Health Foundation. Funds received through the Everyday Hero program are used for equipment, capital improvements and staff education for the departments in which the employees or team work.
