Beaumont Health has appointed Michael Rebock, D.O., as chief medical officer of Beaumont Hospital, Farmington Hills, effective June 20.

A resident of Bloomfield Hills, Rebock most recently served for eight years as medical director of Trauma Services at Beaumont, Farmington Hills. Since 2011, he has been president of Botsford Care Partners, a partnership between the hospital and its physicians. He has led or served as a member on numerous hospital committees for many years.

“I believe Dr. Rebock will continue our legacy of strong physician leadership and carry on the work of elevating our clinical services at Beaumont Hospital, Farmington Hills,” Malcolm Henoch, M.D., senior vice president and associate chief medical officer, Acute Care, Beaumont Health, said in a press release.

As associate professor of surgery, Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, Rebock has trained more than 300 surgical residents, teaching them how to interact with patients and colleagues, and how to balance their technical prowess with a human touch.

“He possesses the traits that make for an effective chief medical officer,” said Constance O’Malley, RN, president, Beaumont Hospital, Farmington Hills. “He is a skilled communicator, can make difficult decisions and exhibits a great work ethic and a warm approachability.”

Last year, Rebock attended the Beaumont Health Physician Leadership Academy. He is currently taking part in medical research and has studies underway on the use of a regional blockade in rib fractures versus standard pharmacologic treatment, and on the utilization of geriatricians in the care of elderly trauma fall victims and its effect on functionality and hospital resource utilization.

He received his medical degree from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his residency in general surgery at Botsford Hospital, where he distinguished himself as general surgery chief resident and then as the hospital’s chief resident.

Rebock succeeds David Walters, D.O., who now serves as senior vice president, Beaumont Health Physician Partners.
