After a long battle with cancer Asger Hansen passed away on January 14th, 2011.
Asger Hansen will definitely be remembered as one of the biggest personalities within the EAHM; his enthusiasm and dedication to the association never faltered. In recognition of his active role in the association, Asger was made an Honorary Member of EAHM at the 2010 congress in Zurich.
For 25 years he represented the Danish Association of Hospital Managers in the Executive Committee. Member of the Board, he was Vice-President and then from 1998-2002 the President of EAHM. As President Asger oversaw several key changes in the structure of the association. It was during his presidential mandate that the General Secretariat in Brussels and the subcommittees were created. President of the Scientific Committee since its creation, Asger guided the committee using his significant professional experience as General Director of Copenhagen University in Gentofte.
The EAHM wishes to express its sincerest condolences to his wife Conny, his family, friends and colleagues.
