Gabriel counsels healthcare clients on issues at the intersection of legal, policy and operational affairs.
As an experienced healthcare attorney with healthcare management expertise, Gabriel guides c-suite leaders on matters ranging from regulatory and legislative affairs to strategic planning as well as legal issues affecting their organizations. Trained as a lawyer and a journalist, he is seasoned in operations, persuasive in advocacy, and an asset in crisis management.
Through roles with the City of New York, the Innocence Project and with CCLC, a trade association closely aligned with the Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA), Gabriel has been a leader of complex operations and teams. He delivers wide-ranging knowledge from experience – including through his direction of care delivery operations during the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy and his management of a more-than-$200M suite of Vital Access Provider (VAP) programs that engaged dozens of provider organizations.
At CCLC (Continuing Care Leadership Coalition) Gabriel represented more than 70 healthcare and human services organizations. While there Gabriel built an emergency preparedness and cybersecurity practice, and opened doors for providers to engage in value based payment reform. He also founded an independent practice association (IPA) and he managed a multi-provider group purchasing organization with the goal of implementing supply chain contracting for the benefit of participating provider organizations. Likewise, Gabriel understands complex government reimbursement systems – including Medicare and Medicaid – and he has developed a $60 million labor-management training partnership on workforce investments and strategies.
While with the Mayor’s Office of the City of New York, Gabriel was instrumental in providing housing for displaced families, in partnership with the City’s law department and agencies. Early in his career, Gabriel worked at the Innocence Project on justice policy, testifying nationally before legislatures and administrative bodies.
