After 30 years, AAMC says farewell to Lisa Hillman

hillmanLisa Hillman, senior vice president, Legislative Affairs and president, AAMC Foundation, retired on June 30, concluding a 30-year career at AAMC.

During her tenure, the Foundation completed four capital campaigns and raised more than $100 million for capital and programmatic expansions that benefit patient care.

“Lisa has been a tremendous asset to the health system,” said Tori Bayless, president and CEO. “She has not only led many successful fundraising campaigns but she has been generous in her commitment to support the people, programs, services, and facilities that make Anne Arundel Medical Center a nationally recognized and community-cherished hospital.”

On behalf of Nursing at AAMC, we would like to thank Lisa for her tremendous commitment to our organization, our staff, and our patients.

Lisa, you have truly left your mark – you will be missed. We wish you the best in all your future endeavors.

    Dearest Lisa,
    I hope you get this. I only found out this morning that you had retired. Not withstanding your excellent achievements here at AAMC, I have a personal tribute to you. You were my voice in the Administration, after “Chip” left. You permitted me to have Health Tours for Youth in 2010-2011 and in 2011-2012. You met with the middle school students and introduced them to the AAMC family. Your willingness to believe in what I was trying to do and your active support paved the way for many successful tours! My fervent prayer is that we touched the heart of at least one student, who will return here to give service to this institution. I will never forget how much you supported us and how much you cared. Pray you are enjoying your well-earned accolades and are entering an EXCITING NEW phase of a life well spent. Love always, Saisa Neel
