Born, raised and making his home for many years in Macomb County, Brisse assumed the role of president and CEO of McLaren Macomb hospital, a pillar to the community’s health and well-being, in the fall of 2014.

“My career has been focused on providing first-class healthcare to patients who need it, and to be able to do that for the benefit of my hometown is an incredible joy,” Brisse said. “This recognition was not something I set out to achieve, but it is an incredible honor and one that I am proud to receive.”

After graduating from Henry Ford II High School in Utica, he earned a pair of degrees—including a Master’s of Health Service Administration—from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor before returning to Macomb County and taking roles of increasing responsibility with regional health systems. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives.

During his tenure at McLaren Macomb, Brisse has overseen the fundraising efforts and groundbreaking of the Wayne and Joan Webber Emergency and Trauma Center, the first major expansion of the McLaren Macomb campus in more than 10 years, which will result in the largest emergency department in Macomb County.

Additionally, Brisse led efforts to grow the hospital’s medical staff, expand surgical technology and develop additional services for patients.

The Macomb Hall of Fame class of 2019 also includes:
• Anne Nicolazzo
• Peter Beauregard Sr. and Pete Beauregard Jr.
• Dr. Anthony Colucci
• Helen Hicks
• Bill Jarvis and Matthew Jarvis
