Business transactions involving health care professionals and facilities often raise unique issues. We understand that effective representation involves knowledge of traditional business and operational considerations, but also of fraud and abuse, billing and reimbursement, change of ownership, and other laws and regulations applicable to health care providers. Our corporate attorneys are knowledgeable and experienced in all types of business transactions involving for profit and nonprofit health care clients.
We represent health care providers in a wide array of acquisition, sale, joint venture, finance and other transactions. These range from the purchase of long-term care facilities and home care agencies across the country to sophisticated bond transactions involving hospital construction and expansion projects, and the sale of physician practices. Members of our Health Care Practice Group regularly counsel clients in the development and operation of health care facilities, including ambulatory surgery centers, adult care facilities and diagnostic imaging centers.
Our relationships and ability to work with federal and state regulatory agencies, including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the New York State Department of Health, and government finance agencies are a significant benefit to our health care clients. Since members of the Health Care Practice Group include not only health care lawyers, but also corporate, business, labor, employment and risk management attorneys, it is uniquely situated to assist health care providers and facilities in their business endeavors, regardless of the scope or size of the transaction.
