About Healthcare Neutral

Healthcare Neutral, LLC provides arbitration, mediation, hearing officer and other alternative dispute resolution (or “ADR”) services exclusively for the healthcare industry.  Richard J. Webb established this firm in 2007 to address a growing, unmet need in the healthcare field for efficient and effective alternatives to the traditional litigation process. The decision to form Healthcare Neutral was based on the belief that the effective use of ADR in healthcare disputes requires a combined expertise in the process of dispute resolution and the subject matter giving rise to the conflict.

Healthcare Neutral’s office is located in Califon, New Jersey. Mr. Webb is available to provide services as a neutral anywhere in the United States.
