He joined the University of Washington faculty in 1967 and served there until his retirement as professor emeritus in 1987. Dr. Rothenberg died on January 15, 2000 of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis at the age of 73.

Dr. Rothenberg was noted for integrating psychiatric and pediatric services at Children's Hospital & Regional Medical Center.
