Dr. Gregory Magee Academic Scholarship Fund

The Dr. Gregory Magee Academic Scholarship Fund, established in 2017, is a tribute to the memory of Gregory Magee.  Distributions will be awarded annually to a high school student(s) in support of their efforts to pursue a college education.  As a general guideline, recipients will demonstrate the motivation to be successful in college and who have goals for their future.

To preserve and honor the memory Dr. Gregory Magee, the family wishes to establish an academic scholarship in his name. He was an inspiration to all who knew him. A tireless physician who always put his patients first, Dr. Magee was dedicated to a lifetime of learning, leadership and service.

After graduating from Fort Lee High School and Princeton University, he attended medical school at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, completed his medical residency at North Shore University Medical Center and pulmonary fellowship at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

He was board certified in internal medicine, pulmonary medicine and critical care and affiliated with Englewood Hospital, Holy Name Hospital and Palisades Hackensack UMC. He played key roles in the governance of Palisades Medical Center (now Hackensack UMC Palisades), including terms as President of the Medical Staff and Chairman of the Hospital Board of Governors.  The innovative force in establishing and advancing the Sleep-Wake Center at Palisades, Dr. Magee continued to serve as its director.  Among his many accomplishments, he traveled to Haiti to volunteer his medical services with Nova Hope for Haiti.

Since his desire to be a physician began in high school, it’s only fitting that his spirit lives on by helping students at Fort Lee High School who have demonstrated academic promise, a desire to continue their education and to be in the service of others.
