Rebitzer was one of two finalists for the upcoming vacancy on the board, following a rigorous months-long vetting and interview process. He currently works as an executive-in-residence with the consulting company Avia, and previously served as chief operation officer at Stanford University's Clinical Excellence Research Center. He was also an advisor to the CEO at the California Healthcare Foundation, and senior vice president at United Behavioral Health.
"Rebitzer has an impressive background in healthcare and will be a wonderful addition to the El Camino Hospital Board of Directors," said Peter Fung, chair of the El Camino Healthcare District's board of directors, in a statement.
Cohen, a professor at University of California, San Francisco, has served on the hospital board since 2012, and announced earlier this year that he will be stepping down at the end of his term later this month. The publicly elected members of the El Camino Healthcare District's board of directors are responsible for selecting appointed members to serve on El Camino Hospital's governance board.
Rebitzer's expertise includes helping health care organizations reduce costs while also improving the quality of care, according to his profile on the Avia website.
