YRMC's Counsel Receives Prestigious Honor

State organizations choose Yuma Regional Medical Center's Robert Seibel for Counsel of Year Award. 

Yuma Regional Medical Center's General Counsel, Robert Seibel, was recently honored during the 2020 Arizona Corporate Counsel Awards. Bob was among 31 finalists honored January 16 at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia in Scottsdale, Arizona. He earned the Counsel of the Year Award for the Non-profit category, one of only 11 awards presented that night.

“The thrill of this award was the opportunity to highlight YRMC’s important role in serving the Yuma community, and to bring attention to our mission to improve the health and wellbeing of every patient we serve,” he said. “This award was less about me and more about the team here that fulfills our mission each and every day.”

The Arizona Corporate Counsel Awards were hosted by AZ Business magazine, the Arizona Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel and the State Bar of Arizona.

The 10 other honorees that evening represented such major companies as Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, PetSmart, Inc. and Sprouts Farmers Market, Inc.

Bob brings to YRMC more than 35 years of experience advising healthcare clients in a combination of private practice and in-house positions, including defending physician malpractice cases and leading the in-house legal team at a large academic medical center.

He began his legal career as senior law clerk to the Chief Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court. He went on to serve as Risk Management Associate General Counsel and Director for Augusta University, based in Augusta, Georgia, and as Vice President and Counsel for GBS Corporation, based in Canton, Ohio.
He joined YRMC in 2016.

Congratulations on earning this significant, statewide honor, Bob.
