Manatt Deepens Health Consulting Team on West Coast

Robert Rebitzer Brings Extensive Management Consulting and Advising Experience to National Team

Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP, today announced that management consultant and former healthcare executive Robert “Bob” Rebitzer has joined the firm’s San Francisco office as a managing director with Manatt Health, Manatt’s interdisciplinary health policy, law and business advisory division.

Rebitzer works with the leaders of healthcare organizations on ways to safely reduce costs and improve the quality of care. He is recognized for his ability to engage the disparate groups needed for successful execution in healthcare—clinicians, payers, policymakers and the scientific community.

Rebitzer was a partner and founding member of Accenture’s strategy practice for the healthcare industry. He was also a senior vice president at United Behavioral Health and the founding chief operating officer for Stanford University’s Clinical Excellence Research Center. He has also served as an advisor to the California Healthcare Foundation and to various early stage and midsize healthcare services companies.

“Bob is a well-connected leader in the sector, whose vast industry experience—which spans behavioral health, clinical excellence and the digital landscape—will be of immediate value to our clients,” said William S. Bernstein, chair of Manatt Health. “He brings a highly regarded reputation for strategic thinking, complex problem solving and seasoned practicality that have resulted in many successful programs and developments in the healthcare space. We’re excited to welcome Bob to the team.”

“I am delighted to be joining Manatt Health,” said Rebitzer. “I was drawn to the firm’s depth of expertise on the matters most critical to formulation of healthcare policy and to the delivery of care. I was also attracted to the firm’s commitment to expanding access to high-quality and affordable care.”

Rebitzer earned his MBA from UCLA and his B.A. from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
