American Medical Association

The Challenge: Navigating The Way Forward

For over 160 years the American Medical Association has promoted scientific advancement, improved public health, and invested in the doctor and patient relationship. The mission of the Foundation is to promote the art and science of medicine and the betterment of public health. Gonser Gerber was hired to help the Foundation strengthen its operations, staff, and funding challenges.

“Without question, one of the smartest decisions I made after joining the American Medical Association Foundation was to enlist the consulting services of Gonser Gerber. Their consultant assessed our operations, coached our development staff and provided strategic advice to the Foundation as a whole. Time and time again, they helped our team to get beyond many of the real challenges we faced by clearly articulating the road ahead in a clear and understandable framework.”

The Challenge: Multiple Capital Projects and Increasing Staff Productivity

“The Iowa Health Foundation has worked with Gonser Gerber for nearly 10 years and their counsel has helped our advancement efforts greatly during that time. Not only have we raised significant funds for major projects like a new Emergency Department, new residential hospice house, new hospital, an increase in our children’s hospital’s endowment and most recently, our Children’s Development Center, Gonser Gerber has helped us develop more targeted strategic plans and increased the productivity of our staff.
