Heather Haberle is a Senior Director in Alvarez & Marsal's Healthcare Industry Group in New York. Heather brings more than fifteen years of health systems experience relating to governance, strategy development, performance improvement and stakeholder engagement.

In a recent engagement, she supported joint venture, non-for-profit partners in the development of collaborative processes in governance, financial and operational management as they create a new school of medicine. Ms. Haberle led the review and realignment process for the governance structure of a major state medical school, balancing the need for financial rigor and standardized processes with the intellectual flexibility of research and education missions.

She led a comprehensive assessment of the research enterprise of a significantly National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded medical school for strategic alignment of research programs and continued university investment.

Ms. Haberle worked with a safety-net hospital to develop, implement and manage an annual operating plan, supporting the growth of action-oriented and accountable department leadership.

Additionally, she drove the development of an inpatient geriatric care model, integrated with primary care and post-acute care services as a proof of concept for roll out to other system facilities.

As part of the A&M team, she facilitated the transition of two hospitals to a community-based operator / owner model under a public-private partnership with the state. She facilitated a 100 Day planning process to identify and prioritize critical efforts leading to improvements in efficiency and effectiveness in clinical and administrative areas.

Prior to joining A&M, Ms. Haberle was the Health Research Advisor in the Bureau of Global Health at the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). During her time there, she managed a global research portfolio totaling $65 million in clinical and behavioral health research. She facilitated the translation of results into practice through analysis, strategy development and engagement of key governmental and host-country partners.

Previously, Ms. Haberle was at Drexel University College of Medicine. She served as Director of Dean's Services, and prior to that as Director, Office of Research.

Ms. Haberle earned a bachelor's degree in sociology and anthropology from St. Mary's College of Maryland and a master's degree in international public health from The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
