In Memoriam: Michael Sachs, Founder, Sg2

It is with great sorrow that we share the passing of Sg2 Founder Michael Sachs on November 29, 2019. Sg2 and our members are grateful for Michael’s vision, passion and leadership. We are committed to honoring his legacy by doing what we were trained and inspired by Michael to do best—make bold predictions, create industry-leading tools and challenge the status quo in our quest to transform health care.

Bill Woodson, Sg2 Senior Principal, stated “Michael inspired a generation of health care leaders to challenge the status quo. Over several decades, he consistently predicted what would change in our industry and told us what we should do to respond. He was an amazingly forceful leader, mentor and visionary for hundreds of health care executives. It’s hard for me to imagine what happens next in American health care without his critical voice, wit and guidance. We have lost a rare talent and friend.”

We encourage you to share your stories about Michael with us or with Michael’s son David at
