WellStar Health System, a five-hospital system based in Marietta, Ga., has named Leo Reichert executive vice president and general counsel. Reichert, 49, will replace Bonnie Wilson. WellStar's trustees made the decision not to renew Wilson's contract during a Sept. 2 board meeting, where they also voted to terminate Gregory Simone, WellStar's former president and CEO.
Reichert currently works as a partner at Parker, Hudson, Rainer & Dobbs, Atlanta, where he represents healthcare providers in fraud and reimbursement cases, and in government investigations, WellStar said in a news release. He is also a former assistant U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Georgia.
