The healthcare sector is being transformed. Hospitals systems need to re-examine their structure, governance processes, operational systems, and their relationship with insurers, suppliers, physicians, patients, and regulatory agencies. We can help you with all these areas. We have extensive experience as top governmental officials in health regulatory and policy agencies, as well as in industry and private advisory capacities. Healthcare is one of the most highly regulated industries, encompassing dozens of specialized areas. We have recognized leaders in virtually all these areas – and we work efficiently as teams to resolve complex client matters that traverse these fields.
We have an extensive practice advising hospitals on matters such as mergers, combinations, and joint ventures; purchases and sales of hospitals and freestanding diagnostic and treatment centers; corporate structure and board governance issues; physician contracting; financing issues; Medicare and Medicaid; insurance reimbursement; compliance with anti-fraud and abuse laws; tax issues; participation in public “safety net” health systems; privacy of medical information; and sponsored research, clinical trials, and research compliance. We often are called on to represent hospitals on innovative, cutting-edge transactions and initiatives.
