Dr. Bassam Nasr

Posted on July 17, 2019

We are deeply saddened by the loss of longtime friend, donor, and past board member of the Foundation, Dr. Bassam Nasr.

Dr. Nasr was a Board Trustee from 2010-2017 serving on the Executive Committee, Grants Committee, and the Community Renaissance Fund Board. Through the Nasr Family Fund he supported the community and various local non-profits such as the Port Huron Museum, Studio 1219, and SC4 Foundation as well as Foundation events and efforts such as the Blue Water River Walk, Community Capital Club (C3) Women’s Initiative and The Big Give.

He was passionate about creating a legacy of giving that would impact generations to come. The Nasr Family Donor Advised Fund most recently supported the long-term vision for the Experience Center at SC4. You can also see the difference his generosity made at the Port Huron Museum in the north gallery of the Carnegie Center.


Dr. Nasr once said, “Arts and culture help add to our community as a whole.” He was proud that our region continued to see growth, prosperity and a greater quality of life.

Dr. Nasr was a gastroenterologist and co-founded Physician Healthcare Network 25 years ago, serving as President since its inception. He was a member of the American Medical Association, Michigan State Medical Society, CAAP, and ACCESS. He served on many other boards and organizations as well.

His dedication and passion for caring for the people in his community was exhibited in everything he accomplished and contributed. Our hearts go out to his wife, Marcelle, and their four children. The impact of his loss on the Foundation and the community is great and Dr. Nasr’s leadership, spirit of giving and compassionate spirit will be dearly missed.
