The Healthcare industry is constantly evolving. Healthcare providers face a changing landscape of ever-evolving issues due to healthcare reform, increased regulatory oversight, and the impact of technological advances. For over thirty years, Carrington Coleman has assisted major healthcare providers and healthcare-related businesses in navigating this landscape in both the litigation and transactional realms. At Carrington Coleman, we understand that our healthcare clients want to be able to focus on what matters most to them — efficient delivery of safe and effective health care to the community.
Carrington Coleman has extensive experience advising and representing clients in a wide variety of healthcare areas. We have litigated healthcare claims, provided clients with guidance on federal regulatory issues, and participated in healthcare and hospital mergers and affiliations. Carrington Coleman also has experience advising clients on their day-to-day concerns such as antitrust, employment, licensing, credentialing, peer review, and medical ethics issues. We assist clients with their transactional needs by drafting hospital and medical staff bylaws, policies and procedures, and rules and regulations that comply with the complex federal and state requirements. Our attorneys help clients by drafting the documents necessary to form healthcare entities such as “501(a)” organizations, and structuring deals so as to avoid any Anti-Kickback and Stark law violations.
Carrington Coleman has served nearly every type of business in the healthcare field—tertiary care teaching hospitals, sole practitioner physicians, profit and not-for-profit hospitals and hospital systems, pharmacies, medical-device manufacturers, provider and physician organizations, longterm-care facilities, hospices, home health agencies, health insurers, third-party administrators, and tax-exempt healthcare-oriented foundations. We have also represented recovery audit contractors in litigation matters.
