The health care industry is one of the most highly regulated industries in the United States, with its complexities touching virtually all individuals and businesses at some level. The ever-evolving nature of this industry was most recently seen with Congress’ enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and recent changes to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability (HIPAA). Because of this, clients need specialized assistance to wade through these legal complexities to determine how the law impacts them.
Our health care clients include, among others, hospitals and health systems, academic medical centers, ambulatory surgical centers, physician groups, and assisted living facilities. Our work with these clients includes mergers and acquisitions, formation issues, physician/hospital relations, regulatory compliance, privacy and security issues, health care fraud and compliance, employee benefits and executive compensation, non-profit issues, real estate, tax, employment, project finance and litigation. By working across practice areas within the firm, McGrath North is able to draw on its experience in delivering a comprehensive solution for its health care clients.
