Michael Bromberg, who served as executive director of the Federation of American Hospitals from 1969 through 1994, died this weekend. After leading FAH for 25 years, Bromberg served as vice chairman of the FAH board from 1995 to the present. He was living in New York, but remained active in Washington health care policy and with FAH affairs. “Mike Bromberg was both a highly respected association leader, and a professional lobbyist in the very best sense of the word, who left his fingerprints on many initiatives that improved health care in America,” said AHA President and CEO Rick Pollack. “He combined a deep knowledge of policy issues with unmatched political savvy. He had unquestionable integrity and was a mentor to so many, including me. If there were a Hall of Fame for health care lobbyists, he’d be selected unanimously on the first ballot.”
