After being sworn in as Health and Human Services Secretary under President George W.

Post-acute care is an industry in flux. While it takes in $59 billion each year in Medicare payments alone, payments are declining, and providers in the space are feeling pressure on their operating profits. “It’s a big business,” said Jerry Doctrow, principal at Robust Retirement®, LLC, “but it’s struggling.”
Former Utah Governor, former Secretary of Health and Human Services, current founder and chairman of Leavitt Partners . . . There’s no doubt that Mike Leavitt has an impressive history. But it’s not just his resume that makes his perspective on seniors housing and care unique and exciting. Leavitt’s career is chock-full of examples when he embodied the spirit of the industry, creating his own path through innovation, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.
