At a time of rapid change and tremendous uncertainty within the healthcare industry, the BakerHostetler Healthcare Industry team has the national presence and depth to help our clients strategically navigate these challenges to manage and respond nimbly to change.
Team members have been senior managers with hospitals and health centers, research centers, health maintenance organizations and third-party providers, imbuing our team with an insider's perspective into challenges from credentialing to reimbursement, from privacy matters to regulatory compliance.
Complementing our deep healthcare experience, we leverage BakerHostetler’s more than 900 attorneys in 14 offices nationwide to counsel healthcare clients in multiple areas of law, including employment and labor, litigation, white collar and business practices, tax, government policy and intellectual property.
Our clients span the range of the hospital industry, physician practices, suppliers and pharmaceutical companies, long-term care, home health, hospice and specialized niche providers and venture capital entities operating in the healthcare sector. We hold a unique, national presence in the academic medical center, children’s hospital and data breach areas. We have counseled many of our clients for decades, including some of the nation’s leading medical facilities. They trust us to consider particular problems within the context of their broad business needs and to provide creative solutions.
Clients look to our Healthcare Industry team to form new entities and ventures, respond to data breaches and other privacy matters, identify and advise on specific fraud and abuse risk areas, defend against enforcement investigations and proceedings and develop and execute legislative and regulatory strategies, among many other tasks.
We help hospitals, health systems, academic medical centers and other medical providers grow through acquisitions of facilities, facility leases, financings, management contracts, affiliate agreements and the creation of new relationships with relevant providers, and we counsel them on a full range of operational matters. We work with physician groups of all sizes to structure joint ventures and other relationships between and among physicians, physician groups, hospitals, special healthcare service providers and others in the industry. We have been deeply engaged in helping clients adapt to and capitalize on the Affordable Care Act, assisting in the development of initiatives including medical homes and accountable care organizations.
